SDG13 Climate Action
The Youth Voices for Climate Action (YV4CA) campaign serves as an inclusive platform for youth in the Asia-Pacific region to make their voices heard on climate action. 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.
In May 2015, the United Nations Economic and Social Commission for Asia and the Pacific (ESCAP), adopted resolution 71/11 to establish the Asian and Pacific Centre for the development of disaster information management (APDIM) in the Islamic Republic of Iran as a regional institution of the Commission.
This site contains links to the activities and tools ESCAP has used to strengthen environment statistics in Asia and the Pacific. It also contains a collection of outputs from these activities. One of the purposes of the self-learning materials is to provide background to reading the guidance documents. Another purpose is to provide insights into policy applications and data sources.
Will there be enough food? How COVID-19 is impacting the global food supply chain and aggravating food security issue

The IPCC Inventory Software implements the simplest Tier 1 methods for all sectors and Tier 2 methods for most categories under Energy, IPPU and Waste Sectors as well as Agriculture categories under AFOLU Sector in the 2006 IPCC Guidelines for National Greenhouse Gas Inventories. The TFI is currently working on making it compatible with the Tier 2 methods for the Land component of the AFOLU Sector.
The EFDB is meant to be a recognised library, where users can find emission factors and other parameters with background documentation or technical references that can be used for estimating greenhouse gas emissions and removals. It is a database on various parameters to be used in calculation of anthropogenic emissions by sources and removals by sinks of greenhouse gases. It covers not only the so-called "emission factors" but also the other relevant parameters.
The publications listed here are the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) Task Force on National Greenhouse Gas Inventories's (TFI's) products on methodological guidance to estimate anthropogenic emissions and removals of greenhouse gases. They are intended for national GHG inventories, but they may well be useful also for a wider range of people who are working on SDG 13.
