Woodfuels and climate change mitigation: Case studies from Brazil, India and Mexico This publication examines the scope and potential for wood fuels to replace fossil fuels thereby contributing to climate change mitigation in three countries – Brazil, India and Mexico. The potential for and implications of wood fuel development for climate change mitigation is analyzed. The publication also presents the current (woodfuel) offset mechanisms in place and their relative emissions reduction potentials. [more]
Small-Scale Bioenergy Initiatives: Brief description and preliminary lessons on livelihood impacts This report is based on a series of 15 international case studies conducted between September and November 2008 under a joint initiative of FAO and the PISCES Energy Research Programme Consortium funded by DFID. The case studies focussed on developing an improved understanding of the linkages between Livelihoods and Small-Scale Bioenergy Initiatives. The study was developed in consultation with the PISCES Consortium Advisory Group (CAG). This is made up of leading international participants in the field of energy and development, including members from the IEA, UNEP, ENERGIA, DFID and FAO, as well as policymakers and research organisations in the PISCES target countries of India, Kenya, Sri Lanka and Tanzania.The focus of the study was on the impacts that different types of local level Bioenergy initiatives can have on Rural Livelihoods in different contexts in the developing world. Livelihoods are understood as the enhancement of the full range of natural, financial, human, social and physical capitals on a sustainable ongoing basis. [more]
Addressing the Humanitarian Challenges of Climate Change Regional and National Perspectives The IASC Task Force on Climate Change together with the UNISDR have started a regional and national level consultation process among the IASC agencies to reflect upon the humanitarian challenges of climate change, and to discuss approaches and good practices for addressing these. The consultation outcomes are documented in the report "Addressing the Humanitarian Challenges of Climate Change: Regional and National Perspectives – Findings from the IASC Regional and National Consultations, May-June, 2009’. As part of the consultation process, IASC practitioners have contributed a number of case studies, which showcase good practice in addressing the challenges of climate change. These are documented in this report. [more]
Lessons from the field - Experiences from FAO Climate Change Projects Lessons from the field provides an overview of experiences from twelve projects and programmes across Africa, Asia, Latin America and the Caribbean. Each case addresses an aspect of climate change adaptation and mitigation, disaster risk management and food security in the agriculture, forestry and fisheries sectors. The documented experiences range between issues of (i) project design, (ii) technologies/methodologies, (iii) data needs and (iv) capacity development and coordination. [more]
Community Based Adaptation in Action Bangladesh, due to its geo-physical position and socio-economic context, is highly prone to regular natural hazards and the impacts of climate change. In 2005, the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations (FAO) initiated a project at the request of the Bangladesh government that was designed to improve the adaptive capacities of rural populations and their resilience to drought and other climate change impacts. It also aimed to inform service providers and policy-makers of the learning and findings, in order to improve support to future adaptation processes. [more]
