This is a summary of the in-session workshop on gender-responsive climate policy with a focus on mitigation action and technology development and transfer requested by decision 18/CP.20. The workshop was held in Bonn, Germany, on 8 and 9 June 2015, during the forty-second sessions of the subsidiary bodies.

This draft solar policy released by Delhi government's advisory body Delhi Dialogue Commission (DDC) recommends generation of 1,000 MW solar power for the national capital by 2020. It is proposed to double it to 2 GW during the next five years (by 2025) 

Financial support for developing countries is a core issue under the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC). Industrialised countries strongly emphasise the potential role of carbon markets in mobilising the required finance.

At the end of November, governments will come together in Paris to hammer out agreements for a successor to the Kyoto Protocol.

This study clarifies the definition of results-based financing (RBF) and in particular its role in the context of climate policy. The publication is aimed at readers from the carbon markets and climate finance communities alike.

Clean development mechanism (CDM) was included in the Kyoto protocol to support sustainable development in developing countries through technology transfer from developed countries along with the mitigation of greenhouse gas emissions. More than 1000 projects which were registered under CDM from India in the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change have been reviewed. Through a CDM project, India as a developing country has enhanced the development of renewable energy projects with financial support through the sale of carbon credit.

Carbon markets are considered a key policy tool to achieve cost-effective climate mitigation1, 2. Project-based carbon market mechanisms allow private sector entities to earn tradable emissions reduction credits from mitigation projects. The environmental integrity of project-based mechanisms has been subject to controversial debate and extensive research1, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, in particular for projects abating industrial waste gases with a high global warming potential (GWP).

Question raised in Lok Sabha on Clean Development Mechanism, 11/08/2015. As on date, The National Clean Development Mechanism Authority (NCDMA) has accorded Host Country Approval (HCA) to 2940 projects.

This study systematically evaluates the environmental integrity of Joint Implementation (JI) in the first commitment period of the Kyoto Protocol. Analysis indicates that about three-quarters of JI offsets are unlikely to represent additional emissions reductions.

The Norwegian government has selected a total of five projects in Brazil and South Africa under its second tender to purchase carbon credits to meet its emission targets, helping prop up ailing dem
