Tools for Strengthening Greenhouse Gas Inventories
Learn about the benefits of a robust inventory of greenhouse gas emissions and explore three publicly available tools for building capacity to improve such inventories with benefits for those working at the national, municipal, and organizational levels.
Addressing Climate Vulnerability for Power System Resilience and Energy Security
Energy planners and investors can learn about how climate change affects power generation resources, particularly hydropower resources. Also detailed is an approach to addressing climate change risks, both at the project and sector levels, to improve power system resilience and enhance energy security.
CLEER Tool Use by PFAN-Asia
Learn about how the CLEER Tool successfully assessed the energy and greenhouse gas benefits associated with clean energy interventions for USAID)’s Private Financing Advisory Network-Asia (PFAN-Asia).
US EPA Workbook Supports Preparation of National GHG Inventories in Bangladesh
Learn about how the Government of Bangladesh used a tool developed by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency, along with support from USAID, to make significant progress in developing a national greenhouse gas inventory.
Empowering Renewable Energy Development in Pacific Island Countries
Explore the climate challenges and progress of the Small Island Developing States that face a future of climate impacts such as sea level rise, increased frequency and intensity of storms, and ocean acidification. In particular, this paper discusses the challenges and promise of renewable energy in SIDS.
Harmonizing Greenhouse Gas Mitigation Project Accounting and National Inventories
Learn about the first-of-its-kind RALI GHG MRV Harmonization Approach, which helps practitioners align emission reductions achieved through on the ground projects with national GHG inventories. This paper provides a high-level summary of the six steps to the Harmonization Approach and highlights its early application.
