The 2017 Commodities and Development Report investigates the transmission channels through which commodity dependence affects micro- and macro-level development outcomes, examines long-term commodity price trends and simulates their impacts on economic agents, and highlights challenges and lessons from ten commodity-dependent developing country case studies. The report concludes that country-level strategies aimed at the achievement of the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) must address commodity dependence in order to be successful.

The publication contains the text of the 2003 United Nations Economic Commission for Europe (UNECE) Protocol on Strategic Environmental Assessment to the Convention on Environmental Impact Assessment in a Transboundary Context, as corrected through a correction procedure completed in 2017. The correction procedure addressed technical inconsistencies among the three authentic language versions of the Protocol aligning them, as mandated by the Meeting of the Parties to the Protocol (through decision II/6).

Tourism - in terms of its contribution to GDP, employment and trade - is a critical sector for many African economies, and its growth is increasingly driven by tourists originating from the continent itself. However, most African countries still face significant challenges and constraints in exploiting the potential of tourism services in trade and economic development. The Economic Development in Africa Report 2017, subtitled Tourism for Transformative and Inclusive Growth examines the role that tourism can play in Africa's development process. It aims to identify key barriers and impediments to unlocking the potential of tourism in Africa to help structurally transform the continent's economy and provides policy recommendations on how these barriers and impediments could be addressed. It argues that tourism can be an engine for inclusive growth and that it can complement development strategies aimed at fostering economic diversification and structural transformation within an appropriate policy context.

"The Globally Harmonized System of Classification and Labelling of Chemicals (GHS) addresses classification and labelling of chemicals by types of hazards. It provides the basis for worldwide harmonization of rules and regulations on chemicals and aims at enhancing the protection of human health and the environment during their handling, transport and use by ensuring that the information about their physical, health and environmental hazards is available. The seventh revised edition of the GHS which includes, inter alia, revised criteria for categorisation of flammable gases within Category 1; miscellaneous amendments intended to clarify the definitions of some health hazard classes; additional guidance to extend the coverage of section 14 of the Safety Data Sheets to all bulk cargoes, regardless of their physical state, transported under IMO instruments; revised and further rationalized precautionary statements in Annex 3; and a new example in Annex 7 addressing labelling of small packagings with fold-out labels."--UN online store, viewed September 27, 2017.

This publication discusses the concept of unpaid household service work, focuses on identifying methodological and implementation issues with measuring own-use production work of services, and the challenges associated with both the measurement of labour input and the subsequent valuation. It provides recommendations aimed at producing estimates that are consistent with national accounting concepts and comparable across economies. It also limits the production boundary to own-use production work of services recognising that the measurement and valuation of the provision of services for other households - essentially volunteering -require separate guidance. Furthermore, it provides examples of how own-use production work of services has been measured in selected country-specific contexts, before concluding with some examples of more detailed analysis, and suggestions for further research areas.

  • Introduction
  • Making the case for decoupling
  • The water resources challenge
  • Technological innovation and decoupling
  • Policy innovation and decoupling
  • Conclusions and recommendations.
As the World population approaches nine billion, nearly half of all people could suffer water stress by 2030 as a result of accelerating urbanization, new consumption habits and climate change. This report provides option for a viable and sustainable alternative; one that swaps economic growth fuelled by escalating water use and environmental degradation for a more durable model of social, economic and environmental resilience. If the world continues on its current course, by 2030, annual demand for water in North America and Sub-Saharan Africa could increase by 42 and 283 per cent respectively, compared to 2005 levels. That is why the ambitious 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development seeks to decouple economic growth from water consumption and pollution by integrating water related issues across each of the 17 goals and making a specific commitment that "ensures availability and sustainable management of water and sanitation for all.".

Energy efficiency is widely viewed as one of the most effective ways to achieve multiple economic, social and environmental benefits and is at a core of making significant progress towards Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) and the Paris Climate Agreement. This publication presents the outcome of a survey among the energy efficiency practitioners on the challenges and solutions for overcoming barriers to energy efficiency investments. The primary geographic focus is the UNECE region comprising 56 member States from Western Europe (members and non-members of the European Union), North America (Canada and the United States), South-East Europe, Eastern Europe, the Caucasus, Central Asia, Israel, Turkey and the Russian Federation. This is a joint effort by the UNECE and the Copenhagen Centre on Energy Efficiency. The analysis of the survey and its conclusions and recommendations will serve as a useful tool for energy efficiency community. Policy makers can apply the results to the situation in their countries and find approaches to improve investment climate for energy efficiency.
