This report represents an important contribution to the overall discussion on climate change and a post-2012 climate regime. It provides important insights regarding the history of the climate convention and various negotiating positions. It defines the major barriers for an effective post-2012 agreement and suggests possible action to overcome those barriers.

China and India, the world's fastest growing energy markets, are the special focus of the 2007 edition in the award-winning World Energy Outlook (WEO) series. How fast will demand in these dynamic economies rise? How will it be met? And what impact will their energy choices have on the rest of the world?

Climate change in India represents an additional stress on ecological and socioeconomic systems that are already facing tremendous pressures due to rapid urbanisation, industrialisation, and economic devleopment. With its large and growing population, and an economy that is closely tied to its natural reosurce base, India's population is vulnerable to the impacts of climate change such as changes in forest and water reosurces and sea level rise.

Study focusing on organic agriculture and mitigation and adaptation to predictable and unpredictable impacts of climate change - looks at the general contribution of agriculture to climate change; discusses the considerable potential of organic agriculture for reducing emissions of greenhouse gases, and its contribution to sequestration of CO2 in the soil; outlines weaknesses of organic agricultur

This publication, the main report of the forestry outlook study of West and Central Asia, provides a long-term perspective of changes in the forest sector. Implemented in partnership with the countries, the study covered 23 countries in West Asia, Central Asia and the southern Caucasus. This report outlines the probable developments, including broader regional and global issues that need to be taken into account in developing national policies and programmes. It then discusses what needs to be done to enhance the contribution of forests and trees to society. It focuses particularly on probable development scenarios, their implications for society in terms of availability of goods and services, and the priorities and strategies that may be pursued to improve the situation.

Climate change is characterized by long time horizons, spanning hundreds of years. The impacts of climate change will be felt in a world that is different from the one that exists today. It is essential to know how the economy and society will change over the coming century, and how this will alter the impacts of and adaptation to climate change. Consequently, the process of climate change impact assessment must incorporate the changes wrought by the driving forces of population growth, economic development, and technological changes.

Scientists have been warning about the danger from global warming for almost 20 years and our national and international governance systems have failed to deliver policies to effectively address this planetary emergency. After reviewing the reasons of the failure of our political, social and economic systems to make an effective response, this paper discusses why it is critical that we limit average global warming to less than 2

National Sample Survey Organisation (NSSO) conducted an integrated survey of households and unorganised manufacturing enterprises in the 62nd round of NSS during July 2005 - June 2006. The subjects covered were household consumer expenditure, employment and unemployment and unorganised manufacturing enterprises. The present report is the first one in a series of three reports to be brought out based on the survey on unorganised manufacturing enterprises. Apart from information on estimated number of enterprises and number of workers, the report provides the information on operational
