More than forty states worldwide currently pursue explicit political strategies to expand and promote their bioeconomies. This paper assesses these strategies in the context of the global Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). Theoretical framework differentiates between four pathways of bioeconomic developments.

VIJAYAWADA: Andhra Pradesh has become the first state in the country to come up with an inventory of greenhouse emissions (CGH).

This paper investigates household preferences for improved cook stoves using a choice experiment administered in rural Ethiopia, and the cost-effectiveness of an improved stove for reducing global greenhouse gas emissions. In Ethiopia, about 96 percent of household energy demand is fulfilled by biomass.

KOLKATA: The city is in the grip of severe air pollution that remains largely unassessed and so is its health impact.

With the government focusing on growing the renewable energy sector in the country, the solar energy sector has seen a 76 per cent growth in job searches since 2014, according to a report.

Timber harvest from tropical regions generates seven billion dollars annually in exports and is estimated to occur across 20% of the area of remaining tropical forests. This timber harvesting is estimated to account for more than one in eight of all greenhouse gas emissions from tropical forests. Yet there is currently no means to independently estimate extracted volumes and associated greenhouse gas emissions.

India’s efforts in providing energy access to those without it have come in for praise by the International Energy Agency (IEA).

DALLAS, May 14, 2018 - Children who were exposed to higher levels of air pollution during the third trimester of their mother's pregnancy had a higher risk of elevated blood pressure in childhood,

This report examines macroeconomic impacts of India’s renewable energy pathway. By establishing the relationship – negative, positive, or neutral – between key macroeconomic factors and renewable energy, the report examines the opportunities to meet economic and clean energy targets simultaneously.

Precise descriptions of forest productivity, biomass, and structure are essential for understanding ecosystem responses to climatic and anthropogenic changes. However, relations between these components are complex, in particular for tropical forests. We developed an approach to simulate carbon dynamics in the Amazon rainforest including around 410 billion individual trees within 7.8 million km.
