Assessing the impact of COVID-19 in Asia and the Pacific and designing policy responses: An Excel-based model

COVID-19 is an unprecedented socio-economic crisis and calls for unprecedented policy responses. Asia-Pacific region is no exception.

In this context, an Excel-based model is developed to help countries ensure effective policy design and to align policy responses with the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development. The model produces a snapshot of the socio-economic situation facing the country/territory, and allows simple policy scenarios to be studied.

Youth Voices for Climate Action Campaign

By making your voice heard on this critical issue, you can inspire others to do the same and move policy makers in your country to accelerate climate action. Contribute your voice or apply as an Advocate today and join a community of action-oriented youth.  

Measuring Atmospheric Carbon Dioxide from Space in Support of Climate Related Studies

CO2 monitoring from space is becoming an increasingly important and relevant capability in support of climate studies and to inform policy decisions. This introductory four-part webinar series will provide an overview of atmospheric carbon dioxide measurements from space with the OCO-2 and OCO-3 satellite missions. It will include a theoretical portion that will describe the instrument, how the measurement is made, and the characteristics, limitations and validation of the measurement. There will be a discussion of the type of climate studies that such measurements can support.
