This publication focuses on the management of the nexus of energy, food and natural resources in sub-Saharan Africa, with a clear focus on gender roles and implications. It presents case studies that showcase a range of options available to improve biomass use, especially in locations and among populations who currently depend on conventional fuels like firewood or charcoal. Although many of these options are context specific, the provided examples demonstrate that generalizable options exist to improve energy access, reduce waste, protect our soils and empower women.
Based on the global Green Economy Coalition's (GEC) five-themed framing of the green economy the technical report Exploring Opportunities for Transformation to Inclusive, Sustainable and Resilient Economies in the Eastern Caribbean was developed for baselining the state of the Green Economy (GE) in partner countries, as defined within the narrow objectives of the EU GE dialogues project.
The Eastern Caribbean Green Economy Barometer 2018 provides a snapshot of the transition to an inclusive green economy. This report focuses on the varied greening experiences of the Organization of Eastern Caribbean States (OECS) members, the conception of GE that is beginning to emerge there, and the successes and failures of OECS members to implement GE-informed policies.
The report Climate Finance for the Indian Ocean and African Small Island Developing States analyses concessional international public flows of climate finance to Indian Ocean and African Small Island Developing States for the six years 2010–2015.
