- DocumentWorld Bank, 2012This book published by the World Bank suggests a multifaceted approach that addresses spatial development, energy-efficient industry, increased public transport, and sustainable waste management systems. By simultaneously acting on these issues, cities can begin to streamline climate change considerations into planning and investment decisions.Document2012This paper presents an empirical exercise with the aim of adressing the following research questions: (a) how vulnerable is India’s trade to any future border carbon adjustments in the European Union (EU) and (b) which sectors/items are most likely to be affected?DocumentStockholm Environment Institute, 2012This report finds that while China’s initiative is clearly a positive development, the process is in its infancy, and still has to overcome fundamental issues with China’s energy sector, its business culture, and its legislative and bureaucratic framework that may make this endeavor quite daunting. There is a substantial need for international expertise and technical support.DocumentInternational Energy Agency, 2012This report is an early excerpt of the forthcoming Energy Technology Perspectives 2012. It provides a comprehensive tracking of progress in the development and deployment of clean energy and energy efficiency technologies in the power generation, industry, buildings, and transport sectors. Progress is compared against rates required to achieve a 2oC limit in global temperature rise.Document
Turning the tanker: China's changing economic imperatives and its tentative look to emissions tradingSandbag Climate Campaign, 2012This report intends to act as a starting point for those wishing to better understand why and how China is slowly changing to adopt progressive policy instruments to tackle growing environmental concerns. Sandbag is particularly interested in the proposal to develop pilot emissions trading schemes as a precursor to establishing a national emissions trading scheme (ETS).DocumentInternational Energy Agency, 2012Industrial energy use accounts for roughly one third of global energy demand. While there is significant potential to decrease energy consumption in this sector, opportunities to improve energy efficiency are still under exploited.DocumentInternational Trade Centre, 2012Exporters of agricultural products are being required to measure and take actions to reduce greenhouse gas emissions in their supply chains by retailers and corporations in the European Union, the United States of America and several emerging economies.DocumentInternational Energy Agency, 2012This second issue of 'IEAenergy: The Journal of the International Energy Agency' features articles on the need for the IEA to share its best practices with the climate change community and Denmark's perspective on energu and climate policy.DocumentInternational Energy Agency, 2012In order to spur progress on energy efficiency, the IEA recommended the adoption of specific energy efficiency policy measures to the G8 at their summits in 2006, 2007 and 2008. These collective recommendations became known as the 'IEA 25 energy efficiency recommendations,' covering seven priority areas: cross-sectoral activity, buildings, appliances, lighting, transport, industry and utilities.DocumentWorld Bank, 2012The World Bank has published a six-page brief detailing the Bank's contribution to achieving synergies between development finance and climate change mitigation and adaptation.
