The newest STAP report reviews recently published climate science literature and provides a set of important considerations for the GEF’s role in this context.
GEF Guidance on Emerging Chemicals Management Issues in Developing Countries and Countries with Economies in Transition
In the face of rapid globalization and demand for products, increased trade, expansion of manufacturing into Developing Countries and Countries with Economies in Transition (CEIT), new chemicals, uses, or products, along with an increased awareness of real or potential negative impacts of chemicals, the last two decades has also seen the rapid implementation of a number of regional and international agreements regarding chemicals management, which have focused concerns on the need for a globally effective and sustainable chemicals management process. One particular chemicals management response of note, is the Strategic Approach to International Chemicals Management (SAICM), which pays particular attention to chemicals, products, uses, releases, or wastes that are currently not under consideration or taken up by existing Multilateral Environmental Agreements (MEAs).
This advisory document lays out guidance on the attributes that technologies should demonstrate when GEF funding is involved.
This report was inspired by the increasing number of hypoxic zones globally, which have doubled every 10 years over the past five decades.
This manual provides the first methodology designed specifically for projects in the transportation sector to develop ex-ante estimations of the GHG impacts of transport projects as accurately as possible.
This STAP advisory document aims at providing strategic advice on the options for GEF to “Promote energy efficient, low-carbon transport and urban systems”.
