  • Toolkit for the Indicators of Resilience in Socio-Ecological Production Landscapes and Seascapes

    This toolkit provides practical guidance for making use of the “Indicators of Resilience in Socio-ecological Production Landscapes and Seascapes (SEPLS)” in the field. The indicators are a tool for engaging local communities in adaptive management of the landscapes and seascapes in which they live. By using the tested methods presented in this toolkit, communities can increase their capacity to respond to social, economic, and environmental pressures and shocks, to improve their environmental and economic conditions.

  • Sustainable Development, Decent Work and Green Jobs

    This activity report addresses the challenges of achieving environmental sustainability and turning the vision of decent work for all into a reality. It shows that not only are both challenges urgent, but they are also intimately linked and will have to be addressed together. While it is certain that environmental degradation and climate change will increasingly require enterprises and labour markets to react and adjust, the goal of environmentally sustainable economies will not be attained without the active contribution of the world of work.

  • Ad Hoc Expert Meeting on Climate Change Impacts and Adaptation: A Challenge for Global Ports

    This guidance document explains that given the strategic role of ports as part of the globalized trading system, adapting ports in different parts of the world to the impacts of climate change and building their resilience, is an urgent imperative. A good understanding of the relevant risks and vulnerabilities based on accurate information, including climate and socio-economic data at the local level, is a pre-requisite for informed decision making and well-designed and effective adaptation response measures that enhance the robustness of systems, structures and processes and minimize the adverse effects of climatic factors. In this context, cooperation among a wide range of public and private sector stakeholders at the local, national, regional and international level is required. To help advance the important debate on how best to move forward UNCTAD convened the Ad Hoc Expert Meeting on “Climate Change Impacts and Adaptation: A Challenge for Global Ports”, providing a platform for considered discussion of relevant issues.

  • Joint Workshop “Climate Change Impacts on International Transport Networks”

    This activity report was prepared in preparation for a joint workshop. The workshop, which brought together a wide range of experts, including representatives from governments, academia, as well as inter-governmental and non-governmental organizations, provided an important first opportunity for considered discussions on a complex set of critical issues that has so far received little attention.

    A concrete follow-up includes the establishment of an intergovernmental UNECE Expert Group considering the subject in depth (2011-2013, now extended to 2017) and publishing a substantive final report, including policy recommendations, in 2014 (“Climate Change Impacts and Adaptation for International Transport Networks"). UNCTAD participated actively in the work of the Expert Group and continues to do so, following the extension of the EG mandate.
