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.

A survey of methods for analysing groundwater Recharge in arid and semi-arid region
United Nations Environment Programme

This publication is a compilation of methods that have been used for analysing groundwater recharge in arid and semi-arid regions around the world. Some of these are direct methods, such as the soil moisture budget by neutron or TDR probes, water balance methods such as the river channel water balance, or rainfall-recharge relationships, which are the most common techniques. Others include the Darcyan methods, such as the numerical flow model, which can use many types of information, and tracer methods, such as the tritium-helium 3 method. Each method is presented with notes on their application and utilisation.
