  • 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.

  • 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.

  • Catalysing Green Technologies for Sustainable Water Service Delivery Kenya- Feasibility study framework

    Type: 
    Publication
    Publication date:
    Objective:
    Sectors:

    Water services in Kenya are often inadequate, unsafe and unsustainable. The arid and semi-arid and  poor  peri-urban  areas  are  mostly  vulnerable  and  are  largely  characterized  by  low  water services  provision  and  severe  water  scarcity,  where  the demand  substantially  surpasses  its availability. Additionally, climate change is expected to significantly impact on water availability and  therefore  creating  the  needs  of  climate  proof  investments  for  improved  water  access  in underserved areas in Kenya.

  • Catalysing Green Technologies for Sustainable Water Service Delivery Kenya- Report on Feasibility study framework

    Type: 
    Publication
    Publication date:
    Objective:
    Sectors:

    The pre-feasibility study considers identifying the contextual features that allow use or limit the viability  of  selected  technologies  in  areas  (counties)  with  less  developed  infrastructure  within the  wider  view  of  sustainable  water  supply.  This  includes people's attitudes  and  preferences, institutional  and  financial  opportunities  and  barriers,  as  well  as  relevance  of  technologies  in enhancing sustainable water supply.

  • Modifying Land Management in Order to Improve Efficiency of Rainwater Use in the African Highlands

    Type: 
    Publication
    Publication date:
    Objective:
    Sectors:

    According to this study, a range of land management practices is available to help improve green water use efficiency. These practises can be classified according to their function. Hedgerow barriers and terraces can mitigate runoff; infiltration rates below hedgerows in Kenya were found to be three to eight times higher than where the crop was grown. Mulch that triggers soil fauna can improve water availability; mulching with straw from a local perennial grass in Burkina Faso doubled the water use efficiency from 1 kg mm-1 without fauna to 2 kg mm-1 with fauna.
