Cindy Zimmerman

UN FoundationThe United Nations Foundation has released a report outlining a “roadmap for reducing risks from climate change.”

Among the report’s recommendations are “mproving efficiency in the transportation sector through measures such as vehicle efficiency standards, fuel taxes, and registration fees/rebates that favor purchase of efficient and alternative fuel vehicles” and “expanding the use of biofuels through energy portfolio standards and incentives to growers and consumers.”

The final report of the Scientific Expert Group on Climate Change and Sustainable Development was prepared as input for the upcoming meeting of the UN’s Commission on Sustainable Development.
