Golubchikov O. Geneva: United Nations Economic Comission for Europe, 2011.

This Action Plan provides a framework for the member States of the region to raise energy efficiency in the housing sector and thus enable them to more effectively address environmental and economic challenges and meet social needs. The Action Plan lists a range of measures aimed at removing barriers to energy efficiency and progressively moving towards a low-energy and ultimately zero-energy and carbon neutral housing sector.

With about two thirds of the UNECE population living in urban areas, this is where the region's social, intellectual and economic life is concentrated. This study provides an overview of the importance of cities for energy reduction, climate protection and climate adaptation. It discusses the actions that cities in the UNECE region need to undertake in order to mitigate their energy intensity and carbon footprint, and to reduce their vulnerability to climate change and post-carbon energy transitions. Climate Neutral Cities presents targeted considerations for relevant urban sectors, such as energy, mobility, buildings, green space, waste and water, with the overall aim of advancing sustainable development and ensuring green growth. This report concludes with introducing a City Roadmap for Climate Neutrality, including milestones for actions in priority sectors and for the set-up of an organizational framework.

Choudinovskikh O. Geneva: United Nations Economic Comission for Europe, 2012.

Migration is a powerful driver and important consequence of economic, political and social change. Because of its great impact on societies, migration needs to be adequately measured and understood. Reliable statistical data is the key to the basic understanding of this important phenomenon. Yet, in many countries, even the most general statistics on migration are incomplete, out-of-date or do not exist. Improvement in this area requires knowledge of the principles of collecting, compiling and analyzing migration statistics. Likewise, policymakers and other users need to be aware of the definitions and measurement issues related to the data to be able to interpret them. The present guide was prepared under the responsibility of the United Nations Economic Commission for Europe in the framework of the project “Strengthening national capacities to deal with international migration: maximizing development benefits and minimizing negative impacts”. The project involved all five regional commissions of the United Nations and was financed from the United Nations Development Account. The guide is intended for practitioners and professionals whose work is related to migration and migration statistics. It focuses on the specific context of migration processes in Eastern Europe and Central Asia. We expect that the practical examples and international recommendations presented herein stimulate interest and improve understanding and facilitate production, dissemination and use of statistics on international migration.
