National Solid Waste Management Strategy for Zambia
Environmental Council of Zambia

This National Solid Waste Management Strategy (NSWMS) is a vital document that proposes integrated approaches to addressing the problem of poor solid waste management, which has had over the years far reaching effects on both human health and also the environment. It is important to note that this strategy will focus on solid waste management but it will however include such wastes as used oils and sewer sludge which may not necessarily be solid.

Global and Flyway-scale Monitoring and Conservation Programs for Migratory Water-birds of the Arctic: CAFF CBMP Report No. 7
CAFF International Secretariat

The Conservation of Arctic Flora and Fauna Working Group of the Arctic Council (CAFF) and Wetlands International (WI) share a common purpose to promote the conservation and sustainable use of (wetland) biodiversity in the Arctic. At the request of the CAFF International Secretariat, this discussion paper was developed to highlight the potential for cooperative actions between CAFF and Wetlands International, with a focus on inclusion of Wetlands International's global and flyway initiatives in the Circumpolar Biodiversity Monitoring Program (CBMP). This paper was also presented and discussed at the CAFF X Biennial Meeting in Anchorage, 14-16 September 2004. To achieve this, the discussion paper reviews: - Wetlands International's approach to conservation of wetland biodiversity. - The scope of wetland monitoring, research and conservation programs of WI around the world, with special emphasis on strategic overlap with the goals and objectives of CAFF, and proposed activities to support the implementation of the CBMP It is envisaged that the paper and subsequent discussions will provide the basis for a stronger and long-term interaction between CAFF and WI in promoting conservation and sustainable management of Arctic wetland and water bird biodiversity across their ranges.

Financial risk management instruments for renewable energy projects scoping
United Nations Environment Programme

Appropriate risk management tools can help remove some of the barriers to financing Renewable Energy Technology (RET) projects, particularly in developing countries where risk and risk perceptions are highest. That is why UNEP is working on a comprehensive overview of currently available and potential financial risk management instruments for Renewable Energy Technology (RET) projects. This study will pave the way for an upcoming GEF project that will promote the use of financial risk management instruments that favor the development of RETs.
