  • 2002 Report of the Aerosols, Sterilants, Miscellaneous Uses and Carbon Tetrachloride Technical Options Committee ( ATOC)

    In 1981, in response to the growing scientific consensus that chlorofluorocarbons (CFCs) and halons would deplete the ozone layer, the United Nations Environment Programme (UNEP) began negotiations to develop multilateral protectionof the ozone layer. These negotiations resulted in the Vienna Convention for the Protection of the Ozone Layer, ...

  • Buildings and Climate Change, Status Challenges and Opportunities

    The building sector contributes up to 40% of greenhouse gas emissions, mostly from energy use during the life time of buildings. Identifying opportunities to reduce these emissions has become a priority in the global effort to reduce climate change. 'Buildings and Climate Change'provides an overview of current knowledge about greenhouse gas ...

  • Climate, biodiversity, and forests : issues and opportunities emerging from the Kyoto protocol

    This report is a result of collaboration between WRI and IUCN examining why the role of forests and land-use change under the Kyoto Protocol remains controversial, and attempts to clarify and separate the issues. It concludes with recommendations that will help ensure decisions are taken by the Conference of the Parties lead to t he best possible ...

  • The Hadley Circulation: Present, Past and Future

    The Hadley and Walker Circulations are fundamental regulators of the Earth’s energy budget. Although the Hadley Circulation is a well-known concept, surprisingly little attention has been paid to understanding both short and long-term variability of the system. This book reviews current knowledge of Hadley and Walker circulation dynamics and their ...

  • Global fishery resources of tuna and tuna-like species (En)

    Series: FAO Fisheries Technical PapersThis paper reviews the state of fishery resources of tuna and tuna-like species on a global scale, focusing on those most important commercially, i.e. the so-called principal market tuna species. These are classified as tropical tunas (skipjack, yellowfin and bigeye) and temperate tunas (albacore and bluefin ...

  • Arctic Climate Impact Assessment - Arctic Climate

    The Arctic is now experiencing some of the most rapid and severe climate change on earth. Over the next 100 years, climate change is expected to accelerate, contributing to major physical, ecological, social, and economic changes, many of which have already begun. Changes in arctic climate will also affect the rest of the world through increased ...

  • Climate Action 2009/2010

    This third annual edition of Climate Action focuses on some of the major issues for resolution in Copenhagen and the actors who can help to implement the solutions. Progress will require commitment and cooperation. Partnerships will be central, both in Copenhagen and beyond.Climate Action is produced to encourage and assist governments and ...

  • Energy for a Warming World

    Energy for a Warming World challenges the commonplace notion that the amount of power which mankind can potentially harness from renewable resources is more than large enough to assuage future demand levels. The presumption of unlimited power from renewables does not take into account the fact that it may not be possible to fully develop this ...

  • Up in Smoke? Threats from, and responses to, the impact of global warming on human development

    Produced by The Working Group on Climate Change and Development, this first-time report says global warming threatens to reverse human progress, and make the international targets on halving global poverty by 2015, known as the Millennium Development Goals, unattainable.Written and compiled by Andrew Simms from nef, John Magrath from Oxfam and ...

  • Sustainable financing of protected areas : a global review of challenges and options

    It has become clear during recent global deliberations on biodiversity conservation that achieving Protected Area (PA) financial sustainability will require major changes in the way that PA funding is conceptualized, captured and used. With many, if not most, PAs facing funding crises, both in terms of the amount of funds available and how those ...

  • Air Pollution Control Technology Handbook

    In the debate over pollution control, the price of pollution is a key issue. But which is more costly: clean up or prevention?
