The Kyoto protocol, the clean development mechanism and the building and construction sector
United Nations Environment Programme

This submission functions as a place holder for texts to be developed under the Copenhagen Agreement in relation to the building sector. It is directly aligned with the draft Call for Action and essentially builds on the work of SBCI over the past three years. UNEP-SBCI proposes that emission reduction in buildings is recognized as an appropriate area for NAMA (Nationally Appropriate Mitigation Action) and that the development of frameworks required to monitor, report and verify such actions are included in a post-2012 Agreement.

Malawi Census Report
National Statistical Office, Government of Malawi

Population and housing censuses have regularly been conducted in Malawi since the colonial era. However, the most comprehensive censuses have only been undertaken during the post-colonial period starting with the 1966 census and every ten years thereafter. Censuses have been conducted as part of the Integrated Household Survey programme. The four yearly Demographic and Health Survey (DHS), the five yearly Integrated Household Survey (IHS) and the annual Welfare Monitoring Survey (WMS) are part of this program.
