Transboundary Diagnostic Analysis for the Caspian Sea
Caspian Environment Programme (CEP)

This Transboundary Diagnostic Analysis (TDA) is a scientific and technical assessment, through which the water-related environmental issues and problems of the Caspian Sea region have been identified and quantified, their causes analyzed and their impacts, both environmental and economic, assessed. The analysis involves an identification of causes and impacts at national, regional, and global levels and the socio-economic, legal, political and institutional context within which they occur. The identification of the root causes specifies sources, locations, and sectors.

Climate change and sustainable development beyond Kyoto
United Nations Environment Programme

The World Summit on Sustainable Development (WSSD) is likely to see the Kyoto Protocol finally coming into force. While this will be a moment to celebrate, there is no cause to be complacent. Although a step in the right direction, the Kyoto Protocol was always an imperfect agreement and has been made all the more imperfect by the fact that the world's largest polluter has decided to stay out of the consensus and those who have agreed to join have demanded and received changes that have weakened the Protocol considerably. It is time, therefore, to begin thinking about the shape of the global climate regime in its post-Kyoto phase.

Implementing sustainable consumption and production policies
United Nations Environment Programme

One of the key challenges to be achieved in the coming decade and overriding goals for promoting sustainable consumption and production patterns is de-coupling economic growth and environmental and social impacts. Industrialized countries have a special responsibility to promote, facilitate and achieve this target. However, the gains of consuming and producing more efficiently (delivering quality of life with fewer natural resources and causing less pollution) will also be beneficial for eradicating poverty and creating business opportunities for developing countries.
