It is well documented that solar energy can be an effective means of cleaning contaminated water. This is because ultraviolet (UV) light destroys the formation of DNA linkages in microorganisms, thereby preventing them from reproducing and thus rendering them harmless.
The use of Liquefied Natural Gas (LNG) in transport is a suitable option to power large long-distance trucks in areas where gas is transported as liquefied natural gas because there are indigenous gas supplies and no gas network. The use of LNG in passenger cars is far less viable because on average passenger cars stand idle more often, which would give rise to high evaporative losses.

Understanding and integrating gender issues into debates, policy making and policy implementation is key to a more comprehensive approach to climate protection. As part of a European Commission project, ten cities in Finland, Sweden, Germany and Italy worked together to identify tools, processes and procedures that can contribute to promoting and supporting women in decision-making positions relevant to climate protection. Their aim is to offer ideas and suggestions to individual persons, departments and whole municipalities.
The Himalayan climate and water atlas: impact of climate change on water resources in five of Asia's major river basinsType:PublicationPublication date:
The first atlas of its kind, this new publication offers a comprehensive, regional understanding of the changing climate and its impact on water resources in five of the major river basins in the region: the Indus, Brahmaputra, Ganges, Salween and Mekong.
The atlas shows clearly that the region’s climate, which has been changing rapidly, will continue to do so in the future, with severe consequences for populations locally and downstream. Some of the main points in the atlas include:

In the limited literature on gender and climate change, two themes predominate – women as vulnerable or virtuous in relation to the environment. Two viewpoints become obvious: women in the South will be affected more by climate change than men in those countries and that men in the North pollute more than women. The debates are structured in specific ways in the North and the South and the discussion in the article focuses largely on examples from Sweden and India.

Following the Paris Agreement, the Climate Technology Centre & Network (CTCN) and the Technology Executive Committee (TEC) emphasized a focus on enhancement of endogenous capacities and technologies, RD&D, and climate technology financing. Both arms of the UNFCCC Technology Mechanism were represented at an event on climate technologies on 19 May at the UN climate change conference in Bonn to provide an overview of technology transfer in both the policy and implementation arenas.
