Renewable energy sources and climate change mitigation: special report of the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change
This Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change Special Report (IPCC-SRREN) assesses the potential role of renewable energy in the mitigation of climate change. It covers the six most important renewable energy sources - bioenergy, solar, geothermal, hydropower, ocean and wind energy - as well as their integration into present and future energy systems. It considers the environmental and social consequences associated with the deployment of these technologies and presents strategies to overcome technical as well as non-technical obstacles to their application and diffusion. SRREN brings a broad spectrum of technology-specific experts together with scientists studying energy systems as a whole. Prepared following strict IPCC procedures, it presents an impartial assessment of the current state of knowledge: it is policy relevant but not policy prescriptive. SRREN is an invaluable assessment of the potential role of renewable energy for the mitigation of climate change for policymakers, the private sector and academic researchers.

Global gender and environment outlook 2016: the critical issues
The Global Gender and Environment Outlook (GGEO): The Critical Issues provides an overview of critical evaluations and analyses of the interlinkages between gender and the environment, and their importance for gender-sensitive policymaking and actions. The GGEO was first proposed by the Network of Women Ministers and Leaders for the Environment (NWMLE) to UNEP at the United Nations Conference on Sustainable Development (Rio+20). The 2014 United Nations Environment Assembly subsequently welcomed the development of the GGEO, and the use of social science information and gender relevant indicators to examine the links between gender and the environment. The report describes policy options and concrete opportunities to contribute to the future we want - a future of justice and equality that leaves no one behind. It reflects and builds on the ground-breaking work of hundreds of scientists, policy experts, gender advocates and members of community groups. And it examines a wide range of topics, including food production, water and sanitation, energy, sustainable consumption and production, fisheries and fishing communities, and forests and those who depend on them for their livelihoods.

Indicators for a resource efficient and green Asia and the Pacific: measuring progress of sustainable consumption and production, green economy and resource efficiency policies in the Asia-Pacific region
This report paints a clear picture of the path taken by the countries in the region over the past 40 years in their resource use. Today, the region dominates global resource use, comprising more than 50 per cent and consumption is rapidly rising as economies grow, infrastructure is built and the middle class expands. But even accounting for economic growth, resource efficiency in the region lags far behind the rest of the world, and varies dramatically between countries. As an illustration, developing countries in the region use an average of 5kg of resources for every dollar they produce, ten times that used by industrialized countries. This begs the question of where we should seek the fastest and best improvements in efficiency and where the Asia Pacific region can find the low-hanging fruit to achieve resource efficiency in this high-tech age.

Transfrontier Reserves for Peace and Nature: A Contribution to Human Security
Among the most pressing needs facing humankind today are the protection of an adequate fraction of the natural world, and the nurturing of friendly relations among the neighbouring countries. These two seemingly disparate issues are often quite closely linked because environmental problems - whether associated with the utilization of natural resources or with the disposal or release of wastes - often involve more than one country. In the case study emphasized here, the three countries that occupy the Indochinese Peninsula have been embroiled in decades of conflict, a state of affairs which has also forced environmental disruption upon them. The region now appears to be entering a new era of peace and may be able now to deal with shared environmental concerns. A trilateral initiative would serve as a model to other nations that share the opportunities and problems of a multinational ecogeographical region.
