This report conducts a rigorous assessment of the contribution of material efficiency to GHG abatement strategies.

This paper assesses whether and how national and multinational credit purchase facilities have supported Clean Development Mechanism (CDM) projects that are vulnerable to the risk of discontinuing GHG abatement.

The Clean Development Mechanism (CDM) is the world‘s largest greenhouse gas (GHG) offsetting mechanism to date. Although its future after 2020 is uncertain, policy-makers are currently considering the use of Certified Emission Reductions (CERs) from emission reductions delivered in the period up to, and including, 2020.

Asia and the Pacific is home to more than 60% of the world’s population and 62% of the global economic output. But the region still faces enormous development challenges and with economic growth, it has become a major source of greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions.

In this year's report, 67 UN entities report their greenhouse gas emissions for 2016. Of which, 56 provided data on waste and 39 were climate neutral.

Reflecting the growing momentum for carbon pricing worldwide, the 2017 edition of the State and Trends of Carbon Pricing targets the wide audience of public and private stakeholders engaged in carbon pricing design and implementation.

This report details a study on whether countries should use certified emission reductions – or CERs – to achieve post-2020 targets under the Paris Agreement. The Clean Development Mechanism is the world’s largest greenhouse gas crediting mechanism and will continue to issue CERs until 2020.

This discussion paper estimates the potential supply of certified emission reductions (CERs) from projects registered under the Clean Development Mechanism (CDM) for the period 2013 to 2020.

This report explores the introduction of carbon taxes with a national offset component and their interactions with other policy areas, and makes recommendations on this topic. In this task, the study focuses on the approaches Chile, Mexico and South Africa have chosen for elaborating their carbon taxes.

This publication is a guide for government and city planners to identify financing mechanisms as they develop their own wastewater and sanitation projects.
