Towards a green economy: Pathways to Sustainable Development and Poverty Reduction 23.02.2017

The Green Economy Report is compiled by UNEP’s Green Economy Initiative in collaboration with economists and experts worldwide. It demonstrates that the greening of economies is not generally a drag on growth but rather a new engine of growth; that it is a net generator of decent jobs, and that it is also a vital strategy for the elimination of persistent poverty.

Human Development Report 2009 - Overcoming Barriers: Human Mobility And Development 15.06.2016

Migration not infrequently gets a bad press. Negative stereotypes portraying migrants as ‘stealing our jobs’ or ‘scrounging off the taxpayer’ abound in sections of the media and public opinion, especially in times of recession. For others, the word ‘migrant’ may evoke images of people at their most vulnerable. This year’s Human Development Report, Overcoming Barriers: Human Mobility and Development, challenges such stereotypes. It seeks to broaden and rebalance perceptions of migration to reflect a more complex and highly variable reality.

Healthy Hospitals , Healthy Planet, Healthy People, Addressing Climate Change In Health Care Settings 15.06.2016

It is clear that the health sector can also play a leader¬ship role in mitigating climate change – that is reducing its magnitude and consequences – by getting our own house in order. By doing so the health sector will create a series of health, economic and social co-benefits that improve the health of the population in addition to the traditional role of the health sector in the delivery of quality health care

Protecting Health From Climate Change: Global Research Priorities 15.06.2016

Climate change is now recognized as one of the defining challenges of the 21st century, and protecting health from its impacts is an emerging priority for the public health community. Further, the potential range and magnitude of associated health risks should be central to the rationale for actions to mitigate the occurrence of climate change. Research in this field is increasing, but it is still comparatively weak in relation to the complexity of the issue and the magnitude of the health risks that may arise from inadequate or inappropriate responses.

Greening Growth in Asia and Pacific 15.06.2016

Only six years ago, in 2002, at the World Summit on Sustainable Development, the world’s Governments reaffirmed their commitment to safeguarding the environment for future generations. They did not anticipate just how soon the situation would deteriorate. We face a daily barrage of bad news: accelerated climate change, natural disasters, food shortages.

ICAO Environmental Report 2007 15.06.2016

Leadership in environmental protection requires consensus among a wide variety of stakeholders, sometimes with widely diverging interests, on highly complex social, economic and technological issues. As the global forum for international civil aviation, ICAO has succeeded for more than forty years in bringing the world together around increasingly stringent regulations for noise at airports and aircraft engine emissions, yet more must be done.

Linking Adaptation to Development 15.06.2016

Vulnerable countries, communities, and ecosystems are already feeling the effects of climate change, as sea levels and temperature rise, rainfall patterns change, and extreme weather events, such as droughts, floods, storms, and other natural disasters, occur more frequently and intensively. These events not only adversely affect core development needs, such as access to drinking water, food security, irrigation, and health, but also entire ecosystems on which all life forms depend— and they exact the heaviest toll on poor people.

A New Climate for Forests - Gef Action on Sustainable Forest 15.06.2016

We live in an increasingly interconnected and interdependent world, in which economic, social, environmental, and cultural boundaries and impacts are difficult to define. In this global commons, forests represent a truly unique natural resource, covering nearly 30 per cent of our planet’s land area. They help counter climate change, protect biodiversity, and ensure the livelihoods of billions.

Investing in Land Stewardship - Gef’s Efforts to Combat Land Degradation and Desertification Globally 15.06.2016

With the human population projected to reach 7 billion, our planet faces an unprecedented challenge in meeting food and fibre production needs in the coming decade. The recent GEF-funded International Assessment of Agricultural Knowledge, Science and Technology for Development alerted us to the increasing rates of land degradation in many regions that may limit the ability of agro-ecosystems to achieve these needs.

Investing in Energy Efficiency - The Gef Experience 15.06.2016

Between now and 2030, world energy demand is projected to grow by 1.6 percent annually, adding up to a dramatic 45 percent increase. Meanwhile, energy demand in developing and transition countries is predicted to grow even faster than in developed countries. Such rapidly growing energy demand is particularly challenging given that most of the world’s population still relies on energy from limited fossil fuel sources and traditional biomass.

Global Environment Facility - Financing Adaptation Action 15.06.2016

GEF projects have been a catalytic force for change, helping to deepen decision makers’ understanding of how to develop an adaptation project and integrate adaptation measures into development sectors. Thanks to the LDCF’s and SCCF’s pioneering work, we have financed projects that have balanced the GEF’s mandate on adaptation with the development mandate of our implementing agencies. Today we have early results to show for this successful collaboration.

Adding Value and Promoting Higher Impact through the Gef’s Programmatic Approach 15.06.2016

A growing number of multilateral development organizations and international agencies are now using programmatic approaches to more effectively support developing countries and countries with economies in transition. Yet the programmatic approach is not a new modality for the Global Environmental Facility (GEF). At its meeting in December 1999, the GEF Council supported the evolution of GEF support to emphasize synergistic programs that transcend national borders.

Climate In Peril : A Popular Guide to the Latest IPCC Reports 15.06.2016

Warming of the climate system is beyond argument, as shown by observations of increases in average air and ocean temperatures, the widespread melting of snow and ice, and rising global sea levels. But as the messages from scientists become increasingly explicit, the gap between the need for action they project and the climate policy the world leaders put in place remains. The purpose of this guide is to increase public understanding about the urgency of action to combat climate change and its impacts.
