Country Study Report - Prepared by the United Nations Environment Programme for the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change
United Nations Environment Programme

This report summarizes information on climate change country studies received by the United Nations Environment Programme (UNEP) Secretariat, supplemented with information from other sources. The term "climate change country study" is used here to mean any official national study on climate change, including greenhouse gas emissions inventories, impacts assessments, and emissions mitigation analyses. Numerous other studies, undertaken by institutions in various countries, are not listed here since either they have not been endorsed as official national studies or they are global or sub-national in coverage.

Good Servicing Practices: Phasing out HCFCs in the Refrigeration and Air-Conditioning Servicing Sector
United Nations Environment Programme

The purpose of this guide is to help National Ozone Units (NOUs) in Article 5 countries in their efforts to train refrigeration servicing technicians in good practices so they can contribute to HCFC phase-out. Not only does this training help HCFC control and phase-out, but it also contributes to climate change mitigation efforts. These guidelines focus on six areas that are key to reducing HCFCs consumption in the servicing sector and achieving phase-out. Each chapter either details necessary skills and procedures, or provides background information so that technicians can better understand good practices and incorporate them into their daily work. These guidelines can be used for both train-the-trainer workshops and technician training workshops, depending on local conditions.

Low-GWP Alternative for Small Rigid PU Foam Enterprises
United Nations Environment Programme, World Bank

To improve technical capacity in relation to adoption of cyclopentane technology of a large number of small foam producers, the project was, therefore, designed to assist a system house for which small foam enterprises rely on for their supply of raw materials and technical advice, to develop polyol, one of the major raw materials for foam production, pre-blended with cyclopentane, instead of HCFC-141b. This approach also enhances market penetration of this new product by using the existing market network.

Climate Change : Policy Instruments and their Implications - Proceedings of the Tsukuba Workshop of IPCC Working Group III, Tsukuba, Japan, 17-20 January, 1994
United Nations Environment Programme, Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change

This volume constitutes the proceedings of the Tsukuba Workshop for the IPCC Working Group III held on 17-20 of January, 1994 at Tsukuba, Japan. It reflects the dual objectives of the Workshop.
The first objective is to provide input to the current IPCC work of preparing for the Secondary Assessment Report, especially materials focusing on the assessment of such policy instruments for preventing global climate change as taxes, subsidies, regulatory measures and joint implementation. The larger part of this volume is devoted to the papers presented by distinguished researchers in these fields, including papers contributed by the lead authors of Writing Team 8 who are responsible for this area.

Country/Region-Specific Emmission Factors in National Greenhouse Gas Inventories
United Nations Environment Programme, World Bank, United Nations Development Programme

The objective of this study is to identify and collect new emission factors which have not yet
been taken into account in the IPCC Guidelines. The aim of the study is to make these
emission factors more readily available, especially to scientists in developing countries
working in this field. These emission factors may be used by country study teams preparing
national inventories and could eventually be incorporated into the revision of the IPCC
Guidelines, currently undergoing methodological development (in a Phase II programme).
