  • Climate change impacts on hydrology and water resources of the upper Blue Nile River basin, Ethiopia

    Type: 
    Publication
    Publication date:
    Objective:

    This research report examines the future climate variability of hydrologic regimes and water resources of the Upper Blue Nile River Basin,and the potential impacts of dam operation policies both in the basin and to downstream countries in the 2050s.This report presents three steps for analysing climate change impacts on hydrology and water resources. The first is the construction of the climate change scenarios using multiple general circulation models (GCMs) to understand the current precipitation and temperature patterns.

    ARPEDAC's mission is to advance sustainable energy technologies practice and development in the Central African Region, to help remove the barriers to the research and development currently faced by the industry and to reduce energy poverty and improve the quality of life of those by building capacity and raising awareness on energy efficiency and renewable energy technologies and services and to support exploration of efficient, sustainable, secure and affordable energy technologies and services which are appropriate to meet the needs of businesses, communities and environment of today and

  • Weathering the Storm: Girls and Climate Change

    Type: 
    Publication
    Publication date:
    Objective:
    Approach:

    How do girls experience climate change in Ethiopia and Bangladesh? This report, based on participatory research in the two countries, argues that programmes and policies that do not recognise the different ways in which girls and boys are affected by climate change risk exacerbating pre-existing gender inequalities and are failing to tackle one of the root causes of vulnerability to climate risk.

  • SystemTransformation - How Digital Solutions Will Drive Progress Towards the Sustainable Development Goals

    Type: 
    Publication
    Publication date:
    Objective:

    Building on the findings of the GeSI SMARTer2030 report, #SystemTransformation looks at how ICT will be instrumental in the achievement of the UN Sustainable Development Goals. The report analyzes the current SDGs implementation gaps, identifies the key features that make ICT a fundamental tool to achieve the Goals, and provides a deep-dive into those Goals where the ICT contribution can be most immediate and important.

  • Good Practice Study on GHG-Inventories for the Waste Sector in Non-Annex l Countries

    Type: 
    Publication
    Publication date:
    Objective:
    Sectors:

    The study aims to provide comprehensive guidance to policy makers and practitioners in developing countries [Non-Annex I countries to the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC)] for the preparation of national greenhouse gas (GHG) inventories for the waste sector. Though GHG emissions from the waste sector are still comparatively low compared to other sectors, they are continuously rising in developing countries due to changing production and consumption patterns. Experience shows that emissions from this sector can be reduced significantly at relatively low costs.

  •  IRENA Handbook on Nationally Appropriate Mitigation Actions (NAMAs), 2nd Edition

    Type: 
    Publication
    Publication date:
    Objective:

    Development of NAMA handbook for Renewable Energy NAMAs in IRENA countries with guidance on the NAMA development process. While in a first step the development of NAMAs and the specific barriers for RE projects are discussed, a second step sketches RE NAMA country case studies for three countries (Tunisia, Chile and Mexico).

  • Africa Adaptation Programme knowledge management needs survey report 2012

    Type: 
    Publication
    Publication date:
    Objective:
    Approach:

    This report is a broad assessment of the knowledge needs of the Africa Adaptation Programme (AAP) countries. It hopes to help these countries capture, share and capitalise on the wealth of climate- and development-related knowledge available, thus enabling them to pursue data driven agendas and resilience-boosting strategies. Overall, the survey answers revealed a uniformly high need for knowledge resources to help with overcoming financial and technological barriers to the implementation of knowledge management.

  • Digging, damming or diverting? Small-scale irrigation in the Blue Nile Basin, Ethiopia

    Type: 
    Publication
    Publication date:
    Objective:

    The diversity of small-scale irrigation on the Fogera plains, in the Ethiopian Blue Nile river basin, includes small dams, hand-dug wells, ponds and river diversion systems. These facilities, however, receive little political attention in negotiations over Nile resources, which focus primarily on large dams. Nevertheless, they are important in relation to their impact on local livelihoods, as well as their potential to contribute to adaptive capacity in the light of anticipated climate change.

  • Understanding the Process of Adaptation to Climate Change by Small-holder Farmers: The Case of East Hararghe Zone, Ethiopia

    Type: 
    Publication
    Publication date:
    Objective:

    This study examined level of perception among farmers about climate change, sources of information on climate change, types of adaptation strategies, factors influencing adaptation choices and barriers to adaptation in Eastern Hararghe Zone, Ethiopia. The majority (49.6 per cent) of the households employed at least one adaptation response besides tree planting, including early planting, terracing, irrigation and water harvesting.
