UNIDO is an agency of the United Nations that specialises in promoting industrial development for poverty reduction, inclusive globalisation, and environmental sustainability. UNIDO LCCR is one of UNIDO’s regional project on Low Carbon Climate Resilient including four African countries: Egypt, Kenya, Senegal and South Africa. The goal of the assessment is to establish the industrial vulnerability to climate change in the four countries. The first phase of the LCCR project consists of two components: national level policy assessment, vulnerability and low carbon industry assessments in selected sub industries. This publication provides the desktop analysis of the agriculture-based industrial development in the abovementioned four countries as well as the vulnerability assessment on their value chain. Results of this assessments will be the basis for producing synthesis reports of industry value chains.
The fifth Vienna Energy Forum 2017 was held from 9 to 12 May 2017, at the Vienna International Centre and the Hofburg Imperial Palace in Vienna. It was attended by over 1.650 participants from 128 countries. The thematic focus of the forum was “Sustainable Energy for the Implementation of the SDGs and the Paris Agreement”, with an emphasis on discussing and highlighting the importance of the linkage between climate and development as well as the synergies among the SDGs, and the importance of joint and integrated approaches for a successful implementation.
TRANSrisk is a project funded by European Commission, in which we are involved in the Work Package 6. This WP main objective is to investigate the relationship between innovation dynamics and alternative transition pathways in selected TRANSrisk case studies. Building on the work on the stakeholder analysis work of D6.1, this deliverable sets out an approach for better analysis on how these stakeholders act to shape and constrain innovation processes and associated transition pathways. This report delivers a method to understand agency, power and socio-institutional dynamics that influences a technological transition in the broader context, which is considered a strength as most of socio-technological frameworks do not address power and agency in a direct and comprehensive way.
This report is the result of a three-day workshop in Bali, Indonesia. The main objective of the workshop was to bring participants form various backgrounds, concerns, and sectors together in order to discuss the potential of several forms of bioenergy in Indonesia and pathways of their development. The workshop was organized by Udayana University, Stockholm Environment Institute (SEI) and su-re.co within the framework of two research projects funded by the European Commission: GreenWin and TRANSrisk. The workshop was well attended by more than 68 registered participants coming from backgrounds such as local and national government, private sector, Non-Governmental Organizations (NGOs), academia, science and international experts.
The aim of the Work Package 3 is to investigate energy related policies from the lowest level to the national level. The Indonesian case study seeks to answer three research question. Firstly, what contribution could bioenergy form waste products in Bali and East Java make to Indonesia’s climate change and sustainable development goals? Secondly, what changes are required to pursue the identified bioenergy transition pathway? And finally, what are the key enabling policies and institutions to support sustainable bioenergy development in Bali and East Java? This publication identified the issues faced by the bioenergy development in the mentioned provinces and proposed the solutions to overcome the issues.

Advancing the Energy - Agriculture Nexus in Indonesia
JIQ Magazine December 2016
Second publication on JIQ Magazine, our green business project su-re.coffee. It works to implement sustainable, win - win solutions for coffee value chain stakeholders, by integrating biogas systems in Indonesia. We believe that the biogas-coffee concept is a promising transition pathway for both climate change adaptation and mitigation.
