This paper utilises a combination of a political economy approach and a GVC framework to analyse the dynamics of the wind energy value chain in South Africa. The paper focuses on the complex intertwined interplay between energy and industrial policy and shows how they negatively impacted on efforts to increase localisation of domestic manufacturing and services industries. It discusses the […]
Sustainable business model (SBM) research and practice has grown rapidly in the last two decades, not only showing the traits of an emerging research field, but also having an impact on business practices and government policies.

The Enhanced Transparency Framework (ETF) is a crucial component of the Paris Agreement, designed to provide a better understanding of actual progress in climate action, as well as better accountability of the resources assigned and outcomes achieved in the process. Internationally funded activities like the Capacity-building Initiative for Transparency (CBIT) are fundamental to build the institutional and technical capacities of […]
Effective adaptation assessment frameworks and metrics are essential for tracking and assessing climate change adaptation actions and progress. If used properly, adaptation metrics can enhance our understanding of what works and what does not work, why, and under which circumstances. Adaptation metrics are central to the learning process, as well as in guiding future adaptation efforts. Although frameworks and metrics […]
This document synthesises the key findings of just over a hundred documents in the scientific literature. It has been prepared as input to one of the activities undertaken in the European Union-funded SINCERE project (http://www.jpi-climate.eu/sincere). The document consists of two sections. The first section outlines the process followed to select the literature, and gives and overview of the documents reviewed. […]
En Latinoamérica el 46% de las emisiones de GEI proviene del cambio de usos de la tierra y el 20% de la agricultura, en donde el 58% y el 70% de las emisiones son debidas a la ganadería. El continuo crecimiento de este sector (+32% previsto al 2050) ha impulsado la expansión de la frontera agropecuaria en los bosques, generando […]
