Global Environment Outlook For Youth, Africa
编制时间：2019年11月1日(编制单位：United Nations Environment Programme)
There are more young people in Africa than anywhere else in the world. This has endowed the continent with the potential for unparalleled energy, dynamism, and innovation. Unfortunately, this priceless asset of a predominantly youthful population can easily be undermined by lingering youth unemployment across the continent. This GEO for Youth Africa: A Wealth of Green Opportunities publication explores the economic opportunities that can be found in Africa’s vast natural resources. The first aspiration of the African Union’s Agenda 2063 is, ‘a prosperous Africa based on inclusive growth and sustainable development’. Africa must therefore shift towards an inclusive green economy that will replenish the environment and deliver jobs to youth. The time is ripe for new development models that can drive growth in income and employment for youth, while significantly reducing environmental risks and ecological scarcities. Such models must be championed by young people.
2019 Global Status Report for Buildings and Construction Sector
The buildings and construction sector accounted for 36% of final energy use and 39% of energy and process-related carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions in 2018, 11% of which resulted from manufacturing building materials and products such as steel, cement and glass. This year’s Global Status Report provides an update on drivers of CO2 emissions and energy demand globally since 2017, along with examples of policies, technologies and investments that support low-carbon building stocks.

Zeroing in on farm budgets or zero budget natural farming? - UNEP Perspective Series Issue No. 37
编制时间：2019年(编制单位：United Nations Environment Programme)
Due to the increasing gap between input costs and the final prices they receive for their produce, Indian farmers have been increasingly affected by the current agrarian crisis. It is within this context that Zero Budget Natural Farming (ZBNF) - a farming method promising low to zero input costs - has been gaining momentum.

The role of packaging Regulations and Standards in driving the Circular Economy
The development of packaging policies stems from intersecting challenges being faced by economies across the world. On one hand, growth in population has led to an increase in consumption and consequently an increase in the amount of per capita waste generation. Household waste generated contains increasing amounts of packaging waste and, more specifically, plastic packaging waste. On the other hand, existing municipal waste management infrastructure is struggling to keep up with basic collection of waste and is far from equipped handle plastic packaging waste by means that would result in recovery of material by recycling. Most of the plastic packaging waste ends up in the landfill or worse still, leaks into the environment. To confront the growing crisis of plastics leaking into the environment (particularly the marine environment), packaging policies are required to address the intersecting challenges of increasing packaging waste (plastics packaging waste in particular) and the limitations of existing municipal waste management infrastructures.
