Energy Security and Sustainable Development in Asia and the Pacific

This document presents the latest data on our current and  prospective  use  of energy while also exploring the innovations in technology,  finance and governance that can set the region on a more sustainable path. I hope it will be helpful to policymakers and many other concerned stakeholders—illuminating the complexities, gaps and barriers, but also demonstrating how a new energy paradigm shift can contribute to more inclusive economic and social development.

Technology Transfer issues in Environmental Goods and services: An illustrative Analysis of sectors Relevant to Air-pollution and Renewable Energy

This paper argues, on the basis of empirical evidence and the conceptual evolution over the years of what constitutes technology transfer, that much can be done within Environmental Goods and Services (EGS) and other areas of World Trade Organization (WTO) negotiations. This would, however, imply rethinking the mandate of EGS negotiations and steering the focus away from simply increasing market access for EGS to one that recognises and facilitates the importance of knowledge transfers including “tacit” knowledge embodied in services.

Tuvalu Biogas Toolkit - English and Tuvaluan Version

This handbook is meant for households who are interested in lowering high costs of energy sources for cooking purposes for their families. High costs of using kerosene and gas stoves for cooking will not build family resilience to the impacts of climate change. Likewise, on the consumption of imported foods, which are increasingly expensive. Having a biogas stove for cooking at home has been proven in Tuvalu to reduce household expenses for cooking using kerosene and gas stoves by 82% and 92% respectively (Binney, 2015).
