  • 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.

  • Adapted Reservoir Management in the Zambezi River Basin to Meet Environmental Needs

    Type: 
    Publication
    Publication date:
    Objective:
    Sectors:

    A number of major hydropower schemes have been developed in the Zambezi river basin to ensure stable energy output. Although this main objective is well met, there is considerable scope to optimize operation of the plants. This paper presents the results of an integrated water resource management study, called the African Dams Project (ADAPTl) and focuses on how hydropower schemes can be adopted to meet environmental needs.

  • 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.

  • A risky climate for southern African hydro: assessing hydrological risks and consequences for Zambezi river basin dams

    Type: 
    Publication
    Publication date:
    Objective:

    This report gives an early warning about what southern Africa could be facing as countries contemplate plans for more large hydropower dams in a time of climate change. The report finds that existing and proposed hydropower dams are not being properly evaluated for the risks from natural hydrological variability (which is extremely high in the Zambezi), much less the risks posed by climate change. The report’s key findings describe a region moving toward the edge of a hydrological precipice.
