The UNEP programme in Afghanistan: Annual report 2010
United Nations Environment Programme

Whilst much of UNEP’s focus is at the national level – building environmental institutions, improving technical expertise, and developing environmental management tools (such as laws and policies) – UNEP ensures that this work is symbiotically linked to its field-level projects, so that lessons learnt from piloting new, innovative approaches at the community level feed into national-level policy development, and vice-versa.

Assessment of Energy, Water and Waste Reduction Options for the proposed AMISOM HQ Camp in Mogadishu, Somalia and the Support Base in Mombasa, Kenya
United Nations Environment Programme

UNEP undertook a preliminary assessment of the resource-demand and operating practices of two proposed African Union Mission to Somalia (AMISOM) camps, in Mogadishu (HQ Camp), Somalia and Mombasa, Kenya (Support Base) in June 2009.The assessment compared the existing design parameters and operational specifications for each site and screened 132 potential resource efficiency measures that could be applied to achieve a reduction in energy and water consumption as well as waste production and disposal. Each option was ranked using a traffic light system according to practicality, technical robustness and financial implications. This ranking of potential resource efficiency measures was designed as an initial input to the DFS/UNSOA engineering team for further consideration and costing during the elaboration and finalization of the designs and subsequent procurement process. This report summarizes the outcomes of this assessment and provides a set of immediate, medium and long-term recommendations to DPKO and DFS for reducing energy, water and waste footprints at the two sites considered as well as in the design of future camps in other countries.
