Publications

Coordinating finance for sustainable refrigeration and air conditioning Sep 2018 - This paper provides an overview of the current situation and options for financing sustainable refrigeration and air conditioning.
Crediting Forest-related Mitigation under International Carbon Market Mechanisms Sep 2018 - This discussion paper explores environmental risks from the inclusion of forest offset credits in the Paris Agreement’s Article 6 and CORSIA, and examines approaches to address such risks. A number of challenges surrounding environmental integrity notably baseline determination, additionality, permanence, and leakage are discussed as well as environmental and social safeguards in forest mitigation initiatives.
Bridging the emissions gap – The role of non-state and subnational actors Sep 2018 - This publication is a pre-release version of a chapter in the forthcoming UN Environment Emissions Gap Report 2018. It provides an assessment of the role and potential impact of mitigation actions by non-state and subnational actors such as cities, states, regions, companies, investors and foundations.
Climate Opportunity Report: More Jobs, Better Health, Liveable Cities Sep 2018 - The Climate Opportunity report investigates the economic, social and environmental benefits for climate change mitigation action in cities. A methodology report provides a blueprint for replicating the analysis for other regions and specific urban areas.
Global climate action from cities, regions and businesses Aug 2018 - This report is the most comprehensive assessment of these non-state actor commitments to reduce greenhouse gases to date. Key results show that action by cities, states, regions and business can go a long way towards meeting the goals of the Paris Climate Agreement, but their actions alone are not enough to hold global temperature increase to well-below 2°C and work towards limiting it to 1.5° C.
