Kick the Habit: A UN Guide to Carbon Neutrality
On World Environment Day, UNEP launched a guide to low-carbon living, entitled Kick the Habit: A UN Guide to Carbon Neutrality that was produced by GRID-Arendal. Aimed at a broad audience, presenting solutions for individuals, businesses, cities and countries, NGOs and intergovernmental organizations, the publication shows how all levels of society can get closer to climate neutrality.
The Environmental Food Crisis: The Environment's Role in Averting Future Food Crises, a rapid response assessment report prepared by GRID-Arendal and UNEP-WCMC, was released by UNEP. The report provides the first summary by the UN of how climate change, water stress, invasive pests and land degradation may impact world food security, food prices and life on the planet and how we may be able to feed the world in a more sustainable manner.
