Database & Research
IGES Research Output Databse
Available to search for publications & databases from more than 4,000 IGES research outputs.
GHG Emissions/Market Mechanisms Databases
IGES and UNFCCC secretariat has signed the memorandum of understanding (MOU) on the exchange of CDM data in May 2008 and have since agreed on the implementation for further collaboration of CDM/JI data analysis. Now we’re closely cooperating to synchronize the CDM data managed by UNFCCC secretariat with IGES CDM database to enhance the quality of data and its analysis for public and internal use.
IGES REDD-plus Online Database
The IGES REDD-plus online database provides profiles of REDD-plus projects using a common template to facilitate learning, comparison and analysis. The project profiles are constructed using publically available material and each profile includes links to further sources of information, commentary and analysis. Country summaries on national REDD-plus preparedness activities are also provided. The database will be periodically extended and updated; IGES welcomes any information that is provided for this purpose.
Water Environment Partnership in Asia (WEPA)
Water Environment Partnership in Asia (WEPA) is an activity commissioned by the Japanese Ministry of the Environment. WEPA, in cooperation with 13 countries in East Asia, aims to promote good governance in water environment management by providing necessary, relevant information and knowledge, through a series of databases.
APFED Good Practice Database
APFED Good Practice Database is aimed at promoting information dissemination on policies and practices that are deemed as successful in promoting environmental management and sustainable development in the Asia-Pacific region. The Database is expected to be widely used by stakeholders in the region and to provide useful information and insight for policy makers, practitioners and stakeholders in the Asia-Pacific region.
Strategic Policy Options (SPO) Database
Innovative policies to promote development strategies were identified as SPOs and those have been developed by the eight sub-themes to recommend directions to policy-makers for achieving sustainable development in different policy areas. Each SPO highlights critical instruments required for its implementation, expected and observed impacts, evaluation, implementation issues, and its applicability and limitations. A total of approximately 150 SPOs from the sub-themes have been developed and stored in the SPO database on the user-friendly RISPO website.
Successful and Transferable Practices
(Kitakyushu Initiative Network for a Clean Environment)
This is a collection of examples of urban enviornmental management policies compiled through the conduct of seminars on themes such as air quality management and management of urban wastewater, as well as collected directly from participating cities in the Kitakyushu Initiative Network. Information is analyzed and information that has potential to be applied to other cities is disseminated.
IPCC Emission Factor Database: IPCC-EFDB
(IPCC TFI Technical Support Unit (TSU))
IPCC-EFDB supports the GHG inventory community by serving as a:
- Library of well documented emission factors and other parameters.
- Communication platform for dissemination and commenting on new emission factors.
It is a dynamic database that supports countries in compiling their national GHG inventories, facilitates the review process, etc. It is open to any relevant proposals on emission factors or other parameters.
