In recent years, vulnerability assessments (VAs) have increasingly been used to identify climate change impact hotspots and to provide input for adaptation and development planning at local, national and regional levels.
This course introduces participants to the different types of private sector entities and demonstrates how strategically engaging with these entities can help implement the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development.
Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD), United Nations Industrial Development Organization (UNIDO)
This joint UNIDO-OECD Stakeholders’ Guidebook aims to help Small and Medium-sized Enterprises (SMEs) in the European Union Eastern Partnership countries find efficient and effective financial solutions to support Resource Efficient and Cleaner Production (RECP) measures in their operations.

Social conditional transfers (CTs) and payments for ecosystem services (PES) have the same starting point: the assumption that direct, conditional incentives are the most effective way to change behaviour. However, contextual disadvantages affect the capacity for the very poor to comply.
The course aims to help practitioners and policy-makers develop and implement Big Data innovation projects, policies, and partnerships in support of sustainable development objectives. Through a blend of teaching formats, including traditional instructor-led teaching, keynote speakers, and interactive and hands-on technical sessions, participants will learn the foundations of Big Data in the context of sustainable development and explore how to engage with Big Data in their daily work and life.
Designed in coordination with the National University of Singapore acting through its Lee Kuan Yew School of Public Policy and the Hertie School of Governance based in Berlin, this course will focus on building coherent policies for sustainable development in context of the 2030 Agenda.
Le cours est offert en vue de renforcer les compétences du personnel des Nations unies et des partenaires clés dans la selection, la création, l'utilisation et l'interprétation de données et de statistiques, en mettant l'accent sur l'élaboration et la mise en œuvre des politiques publiques. Il s'appuie sur les méthodes traditionnelles d'analyse de données ainsi que sur les applications plus récentes liées, par exemple, à la technique mobile, au crowdsourcing et aux grandes données.
The aim of the course is to develop participants’ skills in preparing proposals for low carbon climate resilient development in areas such as clean energy access, energy efficiency and adaptation to climate change so that they can mobilise climate finance, particularly from the Green Climate Fund (GCF), and catalyse the deployment of climate change solutions in developing countries.
