This report presents findings from a study conducted to explore the synergies and trade-offs between built (i.e., engineered) and natural (i.e., ecological systems) infrastructure in the Tana River Basin, Kenya. The study considered hydrological, ecological and economic processes in order to value flow-related ecosystem services.

This study, in collaboration with the International Institute for Applied Systems Analysis (IIASA), examines India’s National Ambient Air Quality Standards (NAAQS), existing policies and emission control measures aimed at curbing air pollution, factors contributing to air pollution across the country, and future pathways towards meeting NAAQS ov

Narratives of Low-Carbon Transitions: Understanding Risks and Uncertainties presents case studies that illustrate the complexities involved with moving toward lower-carbon energy sources. The book aims to enhance understanding of both the benefits and risks of such transitions.

An adaptive programme management approach is well suited to address the complex and interconnected impacts of climate change facing developing countries. The pathway to adapting to climate change is unknown, and there are many deep-rooted institutional, political, economic and social barriers.

The analysis clearly indicates that even the most stringent emission control measures, if restricted to the Ha Noi area, will not be sufficient to effectively approach Vietnam’s national ambient air quality standards.

The Koshi Basin, spread across China, Nepal and India, is perceived as having high potential for hydropower and irrigation development, both seen as ways to promote economic development in the region. This paper quantifies and assesses the past and projected future spatial and temporal water balances in the Koshi Basin.

Malnutrition in all its forms is a major challenge everywhere in the world, and particularly in low and middle income countries.

A new paper released by the Action on Climate Today (ACT) programme provides a framework to help development and climate practitioners to better engage with the private sector on climate change adaptation.
