- DocumentUNFCCC National Adaptation Programme of Action, 2010This letter is written by the Executive Chair of Indonesia’s National Council on Climate Change, Rachmat Witoelar; it outlines Indonesia’s Nationally Appropriate Mitigation Actions (NAMAs). NAMAs are voluntary greenhouse gas reduction activities set out by Non-Annex 1 Parties of the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC).DocumentChristian Aid, 2011This report is one of six African country case studies commissioned by Christian Aid to support the report Low-Carbon Africa: Leapfrogging to a Green Future. The document includes a review of the current situation of energy in Rwanda (energy balance and energy access, renewables potential) and its relation with a low carbon development path.DocumentECN, 2010Low carbon growth seeks to promote economic development while keeping emissions low, or lower. Although Ghana is not responsible for the greenhouse effect, low carbon growth can be beneficial to Ghana. In the short term, pursuing low carbon growth helps identify options that have direct economic and development benefits and can open access to international climate support.DocumentCARE International, 2009A contract was signed between the Danish Energy Agency and CARE Danmark on 10 June 2009 to carry out a pre-feasibility study for a CDM Program of Activities (PoA) on improved cook stoves in Northern Ghana.DocumentChristian Aid, 2011his report is one of six African country case studies commissioned by Christian Aid to support the report Low-Carbon Africa: Leapfrogging to a Green Future.Document
The economics of low carbon, climate resilient patterns of growth in developing countries: a review of the evidenceStockholm Environment Institute, 2010This literature review assesses the extent to which developing countries can make the transition towards low or lower patterns of growth. It explores the potential impacts of climate change on economic growth and the investment needs for increasing growth resilience. The paper outlines the challenge of establishing patterns of low carbon growth and discusses the cost of greenhouse gas mitigation.DocumentGreenpeace International, 2009This paper examines the Noel Kempff Climate Action Project (NKCAP) as a prototype for future sub-national projects to reduce emissions from deforestation and degradation (REDD). It evaluates the ability of the project to deliver on claims to quantify and reduce carbon emissions and bring sustainable benefits to local communities.Document
Biocharred pathways to sustainability? Triple wins, livelihoods and the politics of technological promiseSTEPS Centre, Institute of Development Studies, 2010Considerable hype and debate are currently surrounding the potential of biochar (charcoal created through the burning of biomass in low oxygen environments) in climate change mitigation and agriculture. This report attempts to summarise the arguments, assumptions and interests in the biochar debate and offer reflections on its prospects.DocumentStockholm Environment Institute, 2012This report examines the potential impact of low carbon electricity generation technologies on water resources and how these water considerations might shape renewable generation choices. The report argues that water requirements for power generation depend on generation technology, type of cooling technology used in thermoelectric power generation and electricity demand itself.DocumentUnited Nations [UN] Economic Commission for Latin America and the Caribbean, 2010The study establishes a macroeconomic scenario without climate change trend against which the cost of the phenomenon is measured. It uses "bottom up" impact analysis of key sectors and areas such as agriculture, water resources, extreme events and ecosystem services, making later an economic valuation as a function of GDP.
