But equally, it is evident that a number of important issues identified in the early ARRIs are yet to be effectively addressed. Performance and trends Three broad performance trends can be observed from the 2002-2011 project evaluation data. (...) A final group of evaluation criteria – relevance, effectiveness, efficiency, and the performance of government as a partner – show flat and/or declining performance. (...) Second, the predominance of moderately satisfactory performance. Just 23 per cent of the 2011 ratings were satisfactory or better.

The built environment and construction sector are central to tackling climate change as buildings consume 70% of electricity globally and account for 40% of CO2 emissions. High-performance buildings use minimal amounts of energy for heating, cooling, lighting, and ventilation, feature high performing systems and advanced information and communication technology, connect with systems for transport, water and waste management, and the other services that buildings offer.  (...) The International Centres of Excellence are a network of community-focused organisations that engage local professional, regulatory, and policy actors to raise the performance of the buildings supply chain globally.

However, data for some of the variables (in particular the IRAI) are not always available for all countries, and the PBAS has not provided sufficient incentives to achieve better country performance, a core principle of the allocation system. (...) Enhance the PBAS design, by sharpening the PBAS objectives; strengthening the rural poverty focus of country needs; refining the RSP variable; and reassessing the balance between country needs and country performance components of the formula. 2. Streamline the process for better effectiveness, by reflecting on whether to retain the IRAI variable of the country performance component and by systematizing and strengthening the RSP, its scoring and associated quality assurance. 3. (...) It also does not consider fragility and vulnerability issues as determinants of country needs; ■ The formula provides a good picture of country performance through its variables, but the PBAS has not provided adequate incentives to achieve better country performance in the rural sector; and ■ Some features of the PBAS, such as minimum and maximum allocations, reallocations and capping have enhanced the system’s flexibility; however, the implementation of the system has not been sufficiently transparent and largely managed only by PMD.

Online administered course n. 3 – Water Use Efficiency | Building Forward Better | Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations FAO.org english Building Forward Better Overview Thematic areas Countries Learning resources News & Events Partners News Events Online administered course n. 3 – Water Use Efficiency - , 14/12/2020 - 16/12/2020 In the framework of the FAO Building Forward Better Initiative, the third extended training of this series took place 14th December to 16th December 2020 to address the topic of Water Use Efficiency and Performance Assessment. The training – organized in close collaboration with the University of Castilla-La Mancha – presented the main elements of water use efficiency and illustrated related strategies to increase water performance for the improvement of water and food security, while moving towards the achievement of SDG6. The module introduced FAO MApping System and Services for PRESssurized irrigation (MASSPRES) as a step-wise approach for the mapping of the behaviour of pressurized irrigation systems and the assessment of their hydraulic performance. A specific session focused on the re-vamped Rapid Appraisal Procedure (RAP) to define its main indicators for the appraisal of irrigation systems at any scale, as well as presenting the computer-based version, under development, to be used for pressurized irrigation system.

These schemes can result in very good performance since they can better cover large search windows, are more robust to noise (given the denoising characteristics of the subsampling process), and due to better knowledge and reuse of motion information from neighboring partitions. (...) Our extension now also adds the hierarchical predictors as part of the prediction analysis process and can better help this motion estimation method to avoid local minima and improve performance. 3.2 P-Skip biased mode decision scheme The existing high complexity rate distortion optimization scheme is implicitly biased to the P-SKIP coding mode in P slices. (...) The first could provide some benefits if trellis quantization is not used, while the later can help in finding better motion vectors at the cost of complexity. 4 Conclusion In this document we briefly introduced some of the enhancements and bug fixes that were recently performed to improve the capabilities of the JM reference software.
