Assessing the Costs of Climate Change and Adaptation in South Asia

Description: .This Asian Development Bank (ADB) study examined the economic costs associated with the impacts of climate change and the cost and benefits of adaptation in Bangladesh,Bhutan, India, the Maldives, Nepal, and Sri Lanka. The study aimed to (i) assess the biophysical impacts of climate change in the region, including individual country impacts, and (ii) estimate the total economic loss to the countries in the region by 2100, taking into account the different scenarios and impacts projected across vulnerable sectors, and then to estimate the magnitude of funding for adaptation measures required to avert such potential losses. Results of the study will aid development of future policies and programs for climate change adaptation in the region, including initiatives for regional cooperation and capacity building in climate change management. The study covered the following sectors: agriculture, terrestrial ecosystems, water, marine and coastal resources (except Bhutan and Nepal), health, and energy.

.China’s Climate-Change Policy 1988-2011: From Zero to Hero?

Description: .This report describes the evolution of China’s domestic climate-change policy over the period 1988-2011, using the Advocacy Coalition Framework (ACF) to explore the policy change. Policy development has been gradual, with the most notable change occurring in 2007, when the National Climate Change Programme elevated climate change to a national policy issue.The ACF points to socioeconomic development and the Climate Change Advocacy Coalition’s policy-oriented learning as explanations for the development of climate-change policy in China.

Climate Change Mitigation and Green Growth in Developing Asia

Description: Developing Asia is the driver of today’s emissions intensive global economy. As the principal source of future emissions, the region is critical to the task of global climate change mitigation. Reflecting this global reality and a range of related domestic issues, the governments of the People’s Republic of China, India, Indonesia, Thailand, and Viet Nam have embarked upon an ambitious policy agenda. This report reviews the present and future policy settings for climate change mitigation and green growth in Asia’s major emerging economies. Although recent targets and commitments will involve a fundamental change in emissions trajectories, the urgency and extent of necessary global action requires ambition to be raised even further in developing Asia. An additional transformation will be required for the trajectory of emissions and energy demand, as well as the future composition of the power generation mix. Achieving these transformations will not be easy. There are a substantial number of policy instruments available, yet significant obstacles stand in the way of their effective deployment. Governments face a number of policy challenges, including: energy sector reform, economic reform, strengthening institutional capacity, and securing international support. The principal conclusion of this analysis is that the task facing Asia’s policymakers is not simply one of setting targets and pursuing narrowly focused policies to reach them. Rather, a broad–scale approach involving all sections of the economy and government will be required to achieve the shift to a sustainable, low-emissions development trajectory.

[Dataset: Complete teaching tool set]

Description: 3D dataset model of a moveable hand mould, matrix, punch, and type piece for a majiscule sans serif B. This dataset includes all the files necessary to print an entire set of teaching tools set in one file: the two-part handmould, punch, matrix, and two pieces of type (one with the jet attached as well as a detachable jet piece and an individual type piece). The resulting 3D printed model will replicate the historical artifact used to design/cast type during the hand press period. These models are for teaching purposes only and cannot be used to cast type using molten type metal, nor can they be used for printing.

[Dataset: Matrix-B]

Description: 3D dataset model of a matrix for a majiscule sans serif B. The resulting 3D printed model will replicate the historical artifact used to design/cast type during the hand press period. These models are for teaching purposes only and cannot be used to cast type using molten type metal, nor can they be used for printing. This dataset is an individual file and is part of a complete set of teaching tools.

[Dataset: Moveable Type Hand Mould Side A]

Description: 3D dataset model of one side of a moveable hand mould. The resulting 3D printed model will replicate the historical artifact used to cast type during the hand press period. This 3D dataset is in two parts. Each part is a separate piece of the two-sided mould. You will need to print both files to have a complete tool for a hand mould. For printing ease, the spring (used by typecasters to hold the matrix into place on the mould) has been excised. These models are for teaching purposes only and cannot be used to cast type using molten type metal, nor can they be used for printing. This dataset is an individual file and is part of a complete set of teaching tools.

[Dataset: Piece of movable type B with jet detached]

Description: 3D dataset model of a piece of moveable type with jet detached for a majiscule sans serif B. The resulting 3D printed model will replicate the historical artifact from the hand press period. This dataset will print a piece of type for a majuscule modern sans-serif B without the jet attached. To use this model for instruction, you must also print the removable jet, which will insert into the piece of type to illustrate the process of jet removal. These models are for teaching purposes only and cannot be used to cast type using molten type metal, nor can they be used for printing. This dataset is an individual file and is part of a complete set of teaching tools.
