This latest assessment by UNEP spotlights worst case and best case scenarios up to 2020 while estimating the emissions gaps likely under various outcomes that will need to be bridged in order to avoid 'dangerous' climate change.

Over the past decade, Asia and the Pacific has made significant progress in achieving the Millennium Development Goals. However, accelerating climate change is threatening to reverse these gains, and those who are already economically and socially vulnerable are likely to suffer soonest and most.

The report, which is the product of qualitative research carried out in eight countries, assesses the extent of the finance gap for clean energy in developing countries and the barriers to scaling up private sector investment in low-carbon energy solutions.

The 2010 edition of the World Energy Outlook (WEO) provides updated projections of energy demand, production, trade and investment, fuel by fuel and region by region to 2035. It includes, for the first time, a new scenario that anticipates future actions by governments to meet the commitments they have made to tackle climate change and growing energy insecurity.

Putting a price on greenhouse gas emissions is a cornerstone policy in climate change mitigation. To this end, many countries have implemented or are developing domestic emissions trading systems.

A GEF-STAP (Scientific and Technical Advisory Panel) Advisory Document entitled 'Advancing Sustainable Low-Carbon Transport Through the GEF' has been published.

With India looking at a $1-trillion investment in the infrastructure sector during the Twelfth Plan period, the challenge of a low-carbon economy would become tougher, since the sector contributes 58 per cent to the country

The information and communication technology (ICT) industry and its individual providers are at an important juncture.

This report examines how low-carbon technologies have been introduced, adapted, deployed, and diffused in three greenhouse gas-intensive sectors in China: supercritical/ultrasupercritical (SC/USC) coal-fired power generation technology; onshore wind energy technology; and blast furnace top gas recovery turbine (TRT) technology in the steel sector.
