Tracking SDG7: The Energy Progress Report 2018

The Energy Progress Report provides the international community with a global dashboard to register progress on the targets of Sustainable Development Goal 7 (SDG7): ensuring universal energy access, doubling progress on energy efficiency and substantially increasing the share of renewable energy by 2030. It assesses the progress made by each country on these three targets and provides a snapshot of how far we are from achieving SDG7. The 2018 release is the fourth edition of this report, which is formerly known as the Global Tracking Framework (GTF).

Middle of the road: An analysis of the automotive sector

More than a century ago, the mass-manufacturing of automobiles altered American life, taking personal transportation into the mainstream and forever changing the way people go about their lives.

Action Plan on Climate Change Adaptation and Resilience: Managing Risks for a More Resilient Future

The World Bank Group today launched its Action Plan on Climate Change Adaptation and Resilience. Under the plan, the World Bank Group will ramp up direct adaptation climate finance to reach $50 billion over FY21–25. This financing level—an average of $10 billion a year—is more than double what was achieved during FY15-18. The World Bank Group will also pilot new approaches to increasing private finance for adaptation and resilience.

Advancing the Landscape of Clean Energy Innovation

This report identifies a shortlist of potential “breakthrough technologies” where the U.S. is already far ahead in both science and investments. These solutions have the highest potential impact on GHG emissions and also show the most promise for deployment at scale.

COLOMBIA: BALANCE 2018 Y PERSPECTIVAS 2019

El año 2018 comenzó con un entorno que en su momento calificamos de alta incertidumbre económica y política, volatilidad en los mercados y bajos crecimientos. Estas características predominaron, tanto en el plano internacional como en el interno.
A medida que transcurría el año esta incertidumbre se fue despejando, en algunos casos le siguió una mayor tranquilidad económica; en otros por lo contrario la incertidumbre aumentó o dio lugar a una mayor preocupación.

A New World: The Geopolitics of the Energy Transformation

Aware that the growing deployment of renewables has set in motion a global energy transformation with significant implications for geopolitics, Adnan Z. Amin, the Director-General of the International Renewable Energy Agency (IRENA), with the support of the Governments of Germany, Norway and the United Arab Emirates, convened the Global Commission in January 2018.

BUSINESS DRIVING DEMAND FOR ELECTRIC VEHICLES

Transport is a rapidly growing contributor to climate change, with emissions increasing by 2.5% per year. It is impacting our health; 93% of children are breathing toxic air. But the pace of progress on electric vehicles (EVs) is a great cause for optimism.

Electric Mobility and Development

This paper is a collaboration between the World Bank’s Transport Global Practice, the World Bank’s Energy Sector Management Assistance Program (ESMAP) and the International Association of Public Transport (UITP) to assemble evidence, viewpoints, and analysis on eMobility programs.

POLÍTICA NACIONAL DE LABORATORIOS: PRIORIDADES PARA MEJORAR EL CUMPLIMIENTO DE ESTÁNDARES DE CALIDAD

La Política Nacional de Laboratorios a través de la cual se busca definir lineamientos de política pública alrededor de tres grandes estrategias: (i) mejorar las capacidades técnicas de los laboratorios, (ii) establecer incentivos que permitan consolidar
el mercado de servicios de laboratorios, apropiar la cultura de la calidad y fomentar el trabajo en red, y (iii) mejorar el marco normativo e institucional aplicable a los laboratorios que permita una correcta gestión y articulación del Subsistema Nacional de la Calidad (Sical) y del Sistema Nacional de Competitividad, Ciencia, Tecnología e Innovación (SNCCTI).
