Africa Mountains Atlas
United Nations Environment Programme

The mountains of Africa provide water and food, rich biodiversity, recreational areas and serve as important centres of cultural integrity and heritage. However, Africa faces growing challenges in ensuring the sustainable development of mountain areas, such as poverty and climate change and addressing the feat of transboundary co-operation. Through use and integration of local and indigenous knowledge, supporting green investments and addressing the multidimensional nature of poverty and food security, these challenges can be surmounted. The Africa Mountains Atlas defines these challenges and presents the associated opportunities that can be seized to prevent unsustainable development of Africa’s mountain ecosystems.

The scale of the challenge of the transition to such a system calls for flexibility and experimentation with a diverse set of policy approaches."

The clean energy voyage
United Nations Environment Programme

The Clean Energy Voyage explores the rapid progress with clean energy technologies, policies and projects over the past decade, and explores the many myths about the potential for a global economy powered by clean energy. From innovative transport schemes in Paris, to the UNEP headquarters in Nairobi, and the clean energy finance companies of New York, the publication uses destinations across the developing and developed world to highlight the factors for success and, at times, the reasons for failure in efforts to increase the use of renewable energy and energy efficiency.
