Greenhouse gas emissions and the developing countries : strategic options and the U.S.A.I.D. response. A report to Congress. New A.I.D. iniciatives to reduce greenhouse gas emissions.



A significant number of new A.I.D. climate change efforts in the energy, forestry and agriculture sectors are being planned. They form an integral part of broader new Agency environmental initiatives. A.I.D. new efforts in energy include plans such as the General Energy Efficiency Iniciative, programs for supporting collaborative energy technology development and commercialization, and promotion of technology transfer in energy efficiency and clean energy technologies in developing countries. In forestry, key actions include expanded programs of policy research, training and institution strengthening focused on tropical deforestation and degradation, as well as strengthening international, multi-donor efforts to support forestry research and in-country tropical forestry assistance programs. New forestry iniatiatives are planned in key countries including the Philippines, Indonesia, Brasil, Mexico and Zaire, which are projected to contribute large amounts of greenhouse gases as a result of destruction of forests. Key initiatives being explored in agriculture include international collaborative programs for monitoring greenhouse emissions and soil organic carbon stocks.
