A toolkit for preparation of low carbon mobility plan
United Nations Environment Programme

The Toolkit for Comprehensive Mobility Plan (CMP) Revised (2014) is used as a starting point for the present toolkit. This toolkit for LCMP caters to a global audience, and provides a simplified approach for LCMP preparation for smaller cities, or cities in which no major investments are envisaged in the short-term. The toolkit has a specific focus on cities in less-developed and developing countries where significant infrastructure will be built to cater to a growing transportation demand and, therefore, land-use and transport policies can play an important role in shaping mobility demand and mode choice.

GEO-6: Global Environment Outlook: Regional assessment for the Pan-European Region
United Nations Environment Programme, United Nations Economic Commission for Europe

The sixth Global Environment Outlook (GEO-6) Assessment for the pan-European region paints a comprehensive picture of the environmental factors contributing to human health and well-being at the regional level. Backed by a large body of recent, credible scientific evidence, regional-wide consultations and a robust intergovernmental process, the assessment demonstrates that regional and global multilateral environmental agreements have improved environmental conditions in the pan-European region. It also highlights the complexity of the interlinked environmental, social and economic challenges now confronting decision makers.

Global Gender and Environment Outlook
United Nations Environment Programme

The GGEO provides an overview of current knowledge and gives a first set of answers to the following key policy-relevant questions: • What social forces are producing the changes seen in the environment, and are they gender-dependent? • What are the large-scale consequences of ongoing environmental changes for social systems and human security, and are these consequences genderdifferentiated? • What do future projections and outlooks look like, are they gender-differentiated, and will there be different outcomes for women and men? • What actions could be taken for a more sustainable future that would position women and men as equal agents in taking such actions, and which socio-economic factors could shape different outcomes and responses for women and men? We look forward to the uptake of GGEO’s findings throughout the environmental sector at international and national levels
