The transport sector is the fastest growing source of greenhouse gas emissions at present. It accounts for approximately one quarter of global greenhouse gas emissions and hence figures prominently in efforts to transform the energy economy and protect the climate.

The Indo-German project on Water Security and Climate Adaptation in Rural India (WASCA) is in partnership with the Ministry of Rural Development and the Ministry of Jal Shakti.

Both Ecosystem-based Adaptation and Climate Risk Finance & Insurance can be used to enhance adaptation, reduce and transfer risk, and build resilience to the growing impacts from natural and human-made hazards. There is a nascent and growing interest in where these strategies may intersect and be mutually beneficial for adaptation.

This roadmap is developed from work undertaken on integrated climate risk management (ICRM) through the “Promoting Integrated Mechanisms for Climate Risk Management and Transfer” project (“ICRM project”) implemented by the Deutsche Gesellschaft für International Zusammenarbeit (GIZ) GmbH and the Munich Climate Insurance Initiative (MCII).

The GIZ Fuel Price Report 2018/19 presents fuel prices for 179 countries. This biennial study is conducted by GIZ on behalf of the Federal Minstry for Economic Cooperation and Development (BMZ) and represents the most comprehensive dataset on fuel prices worldwide. This year's report marks the 20th year jubilee of the study.

This report, which addresses the important step of “greening” the transportation system in South East Europe (SEE) countries. The main reason for establishing the SUMSEEC project is the exchange of experience between SEE cities, which often face common challenges, and opportunities.

Motorcycles are a dominant form of transport in many cities, especially throughout Asia. This Sourcebook describes the challenges of this trend and provides an overview on measures to counter the rising emissions from two-stroke two-and three-wheelers in developing cities.

This guidance assists policymakers in designing national mitigation strategies for the refrigeration, air conditioning and foam (RAC&F) sector to meet the increasing ambition levels expected in revised NDCs.

This discussion paper explores environmental risks from the inclusion of forest offset credits in the Paris Agreement’s Article 6 and CORSIA, and examines approaches to address such risks.

The refrigeration and air conditioning (RAC) sector faces a particular challenge in the implementation of effective finance strategies given its cross-sectoral nature – extending from manufacturing of gases and appliances to energy end-use in buildings – and hence the different institutional responsibilities as well as policy and compliance regi
