This Technology Transfer Advances Bhutan's
- Nationally Determined Contribution to promote a low carbon transport system by use of appropriate intelligent transport systems and improved mass transit.
There is a distinct need for decision makers to be able to understand the risks that climate and environmental changes bring such that they can make informed choices about development and socio-economic security.
This webinar addresses the climate change and development challenges of urban transportation and how the transportation sector can contribute to mitigation objectives.
Idom is an international multidisciplinary firm working with independent professional services in the fields of engineering, consulting and architecture with over 3,000 professionals, located in 40 permanent offices distributed in over 28 countries. Idom's capabilities include engineering and consultancy services from concept design to decommission in climate relevant fields such as renewable and alternative energy, water and waste. The team of Idom aims at carbon accounting related projects and climate change adaptation and mitigation strategies.
Effective climate adaptation actions and policy often require integrated data analysis from sources that are disparate or non-existent.
The modal split for freight transport varies greatly by region, and is largely determined by geographical and economic factors. However there is a common trend towards more use of road transport, at the expense of rail and water transport. The latter modes have a substantially better environmental profile, but are limited by longer delivery times and the necessity of pre- and post-haulage by truck, i.e. inter-modal transport. In the logistic chain used nowadays, there are small local stocks and fast on demand delivery is required.
Organized conjointly by the United Nations Industrial Development Organization (UNIDO) and the Finance Center for South-South Cooperation (FCSSC), “BRIDGE for Cities - Belt and Road Initiative: Developing Green Economies for Cities” (“BRIDGE for Cities” event) is a large-scale annual event, which aims to advance the implementation of the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) and the New Urban Agenda.
This study focuses on which agricultural subsectors are important in Ethiopia"s economic growth and poverty reduction and what kind of agricultural and nonagricultural growth is needed to achieve the millennium development goal of halving the incidence of poverty by 2015. A spatially disaggregated, economy-wide model was developed, enabling the analysis of growth and poverty reduction linkages at national and regional levels using national household surveys, agricultural sample surveys, geographic information systems, and other national and regional data.
Climate change, together with global population and income growth, is a major threat to food security in the world. This food policy report presents research results which quantify climate change impact, assess the consequences for food security and estimate the investment required to offset the negative effects on human wellbeing. It brings together detailed modelling of crop growth under climate change using two scenarios to simulate future climate.
