Top 5 Resources of 2019
December 24, 2019
The Climatelinks community contributed over 100 resources in 2019 on a wide range of topics, from monitoring and evaluation of urban climate adaptation to climate risk screening tools for low-emission energy development. Each contribution is available from the Climatelinks Resource Library. Do you have a favorite Climatelinks resource from this past year? Below are the five most visited resources of 2019.
5. A methodology for greenhouse gas emission and carbon sequestration assessments in agriculture helps development projects estimate the impacts of agricultural interventions on greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions and carbon sequestration. This resource was produced by Low-Emissions Opportunities in Agriculture in partnership with CGIAR Research Program on Climate Change, Agriculture and Food Security (CCAFS).
4. The RALI GHG MRV Harmonization Framework provides a “turn-key” approach for national inventory teams, mitigation activity implementers, and other climate change practitioners to successfully apply the Harmonization Framework to a selected mitigation activity. It can also be used to improve national GHG accounting. This resource was produced by the Resources to Advance LEDS Implementation (RALI) Activity.
3. The Climate Risk Screening and Management Tool supports climate risk screening and management in strategy, project, and activity design. The tool can improve the effectiveness and sustainability of development interventions by helping users in assessing and addressing climate risk.
2. Climate Risk Profiles summarize key climate stressors and risks most relevant to a Mission’s objectives. There is a wide range of profiles in the Climatelinks library about climate risks in a region or country, including how climate change will potentially impact key sectors. The brief includes projected climate changes, the policy context, and information regarding ongoing climate change projects in the country or region.
1. GHG Emissions Fact Sheets are the most popular type of resource on Climatelinks. They provide information that is useful for identifying climate change mitigation opportunities. Each country or region fact sheet breaks down GHG emissions in the country by sector, emissions trends, and how they relate to its gross domestic product and mitigation strategies. A user guide explains the information presented in the GHG Emissions Fact Sheets.
