Understanding how efficiently we use natural resources is a vital step for designing policies to tackle inefficiencies. This infographics booklet reveals both the patterns and the evolution of natural resource use in the Asia Pacific over the last 40 years. The booklet presents findings in a graphic format that makes the trends of resource use and resource efficiency in the Asia-Pacific region accessible to all readers.
This guidance note focuses on best practices for enforcing energy efficiency policies for lighting, including compliance with registration, minimum energy performance and energy labelling requirements. It is primarily intended for use by those countries that have yet to develop and implement an enforcement regime for lighting products, but is equally relevant for countries seeking to revise or strengthen their enforcement activities. It aims to be a practical resource for governments and enforcement authorities on processes to follow when implementing a national enforcement programme and describes best practices for enforcing energy efficient policies at both a national and regional level.
The SRP Standard for Sustainable Rice Cultivation is the world’s first voluntary sustainability standard for rice, aimed specifically at smallholders. The Standard, together with a set of Performance Indicators, allow objective assessment of the sustainability performance of any rice production system.This enables field and policy interventions to be focused and tailored to local needs. The Standard incorporate a scoring system to reward progress towards full compliance, and has already been adopted by major corporates such as Mars Foods.
This guidance note focuses on the development and maintenance of market baselines and market monitoring activities as tools to inform minimum energy performance standards, labelling, and supporting policies for energy efficient lighting. It is primarily aimed at policymakers that wish to establish, or update, policies to facilitate the transition to efficient lighting and provides a practical resource for those developing a market baseline for the first time, or those who are looking to update existing baselines for market monitoring purposes. It defines the necessary components of a market baseline for lighting products and outlines a step by step approach to their development and to carrying out market monitoring.
