  • Pivotal Soil Carbon

    This technical document focuses on the link between environmental change and carbon. When contained in greenhouse gases, carbon is a part of the problem. But in its organic form in the soil, carbon represents a major part of the solution. Increasing soil carbon builds a reservoir and helps to offset greenhouse gas emissions. It also contributes to the fertility of the soil, the foundation for all land-based  natural and agricultural ecosystems.

  • The 2015 Global Assessment Report on Disaster Risk Reduction (GAR15)

    This analytical report analyses disaster risk management and shows that sustainable development cannot be achieved without reducing disaster risk. The report estimates that economic losses from disasters can amount to US$250-300 billion each year. The report also estimates that an annual investment of US$6 billion in disaster risk management would generate US$360 billion over the next 15 years through avoided losses.

  • The Pivotal Role of Water in Climate Change Adaptation and Mitigation

    This short video reports on the side event by the same title organized by UN-Water during COP21. A panel discussion brought together intergovernmental organizations, national and local government and the private sector to discuss how climate change impacts will be mostly felt on the water cycle, therefore existing water laws, transboundary agreements, water rights or concessions for water abstraction might need to be revisited and made more flexible to take into account the increasing variability in water availability. Water, land and forest management need to be considered jointly; the nexus approach calls for identifying and increasing synergies between water, energy and agriculture. Representatives of these sectors need to work together at all levels.

  • The Triple Dividend of Resilience: Realising Development Goals through the Multiple Benefits of Disaster Risk Management

    This guidance report provides evidence for three types of benefits – or dividends of resilience – that disaster risk management (DRM) investments can yield: (i) Avoiding losses when disasters strike; (ii) Stimulating economic activity thanks to reduced disaster risk; and (iii) Development co-benefits, or uses, of a specific DRM investment. While the first dividend is the most common motivation for investing in resilience, the second and third dividend are typically overlooked. The report argues that any evaluation of the benefits of DRM investments is incomplete without a full account of all three dividends of resilience.
