The South Asian region and its economic development are highly dependent on the energy sector. To ensure that development is sustainable, it is important that the actions taken to enhance and improve the energy sector are based on renewable energy sources, include regional cooperation, and contribute to collective development through sharing of resources. This research report focuses on identifying gaps in policies and regulations in Sri Lanka to implement the country's Nationally Determined Contributions (NDCs) for renewable energy, with a primary focus on solar and wind energy.
Increasingly, climate change has become an underlying driver of human mobility that shapes and alters existing movement patterns or opens up new movement corridors around the world. This briefing note examines the extent to which the different dimensions of human mobility - migration, disaster displacement, and planned relocation - have been integrated into the revised, updated, and newly submitted Nationally Determined Contributions under the Paris Agreement.
Climate change affects human mobility, livelihoods, and well-being across different sectors, including water resources and irrigation, human health, ecosystems and biodiversity, risk management, food systems, sustainable development, education, human settlements, gender, vulnerable communities, and social protection. Moreover, these sectors are intricately linked to local, national, regional, and global processes, including the Nationally Determined Contributions (NDCs) under the Paris Agreement and the Agenda 2030 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).
