This advisory document lays out guidance on the attributes that technologies should demonstrate when GEF funding is involved.
This report was inspired by the increasing number of hypoxic zones globally, which have doubled every 10 years over the past five decades.
This manual provides the first methodology designed specifically for projects in the transportation sector to develop ex-ante estimations of the GHG impacts of transport projects as accurately as possible.
This STAP advisory document aims at providing strategic advice on the options for GEF to “Promote energy efficient, low-carbon transport and urban systems”.
The Evidence Base for Community Forest Management as a Mechanism for Supplying Global Environmental Benefits and Improving Local Welfare
This STAP advisory document summarizes the evidence base for the effectiveness of CFM initiatives in generating environmental benefits.
Benefits and Trade-Offs Between Energy Conservation and Releases of Unintentionally Produced Persistent Organic Pollutants: A STAP advisory document
The Fourth Assessment Report of the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) emphasized a need for capturing synergies and avoiding trade-offs when addressing greenhouse gases (GHG) mitigation and air pollution control. The efficiency of a framework depends on the choice and design of the policy instruments and their integration. Air pollutants and GHGs are often emitted by the same sources, and, therefore, a single set of technologies or policy measures (an integrated approach) has co-benefits for emission reduction. However, there are situations when energy efficiency improvements may have limited or negative impact on the release of air pollutants (trade-offs).
