Sustainable Forest Management Workshop
Use of Bioindicators, Biomarkers and Analytical Methods for the Analysis of POP's in Developing Countries
[T]he GEF asked the Scientific and Technical Advisory Panel (STAP) for a review of cost-effective and accurate methods available for determining the presence and levels of POPs in the environment in developing countries with special emphasis on the use of bioindicators and biomarkers.
Reducing the Long Term Costs of Low Greenhouse Gas-Emitting Energy Technologies
[T]here are two main problems. First, the technologies promoted to date have been regarded as too risky, because they are large scale and capital intensive, produce power which costs more (a financial risk) and also carry higher technological risks. And second, the need to reconcile the global, long-term benefit of lower greenhouse gas emissions with sufficient local benefits, i.e. more reliable generation of electricity at affordable prices.
STAP believes that promoting low greenhouse gas emitting technologies should remain fundamental to the GEF's work.
Carbon Dioxide Capture and Storage
The Report is supported by Annex 1, containing examples of awareness and capacity building activities, and by Annex 2, which contains the proceedings of the meeting, but any discussions or recommendations made in the meeting are not endorsed by STAP as its own position.
