Consortium of International Agricultural Research Centers (CGIAR)
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.

International Institute for Sustainable Development (IISD)
This policy brief, India's Energy Transition: The Impact of the goods and services tax on solar photovoltaic and coal power costs, assesses the impact of India's Goods and Services Tax (GST) on energy source preferences and the cost of energy production. The introduction of the GST appears to provide a relative bias in favour of coal-based power.

Donor Committee for Enterprise Development (DCED), Technopolis Group
This scoping paper explores how inclusive and green growth can be supported in fragile and conflict-affected settings (FCAS), and if there are certain approaches and instruments to support green growth, which are more or less adapted for such settings. It includes case studies on waste management in Sierra Leone, the the “Post Conflict Window” of the African Enterprise Challenge Fund (AECF), and the Deutsche Gesellschaft für Internationale Zusammenarbeit GmbH /German Corporation for International Cooperation (GIZ) & IDH Sustainable Trade Initiative: Regional Landscape Approach in Côte d’Ivoire.

Beyond the Gap: How Countries Can Afford the Infrastructure They Need while Protecting the Planet aims to shift the debate regarding investment needs away from a simple focus on spending more and toward a focus on spending better on the right objectives, using relevant metrics. It does so by offering a careful and systematic approach to estimating the funding needs to close the service gaps in water and sanitation, transportation, electricity, irrigation, and flood protection.

Market Uptake of Solar Thermal Electricity (MUSTEC)
This report investigates clean energy policy strategies in France, Germany, Spain, Italy, Switzerland, and the European Union (EU) as a whole and finds that none of these pathways would lead to decarbonisation to the extent required to fulfil the European (Union and national) commitments under the Paris Agreement. The report points to a greater need for power system flexibility in order to expand intermittent renewables.
