 Page 219 - The Digital Financial Services (DFS) Ecosystem           Basic HTML Version Table of Contents View Full Version Page 219 - The Digital Financial Services (DFS) Ecosystem P. 219 ITU-T Focus Group Digital Financial Services Ecosystem systems led to the program’s demise. Without technical and economic alignment, these new programs will also fail. 22 6 Considerations for policy makers We believe policy makers can play a guiding role in helping to ensure the potential benefits of ACD, including the use of e-money, in helping to incent BoP sellers to accept electronic payments, are realized. (...) This guidance can come in several forms: • Encourage the development of ACD in a system open to a wide range of participants – banks, MNOs, alternative lenders, etc. and explicitly address the use of e-money payment data as a meaningful data point in bringing credit to BoP merchants. • In order to support these ACD systems, policy makers need to get out in front of a range of issues surrounding collection, usage, securing, and sharing of ACD data. • To the extent policy makers can influence telecom and payment platforms, encourage open and easy to integrate APIs to access data while complying with applicable regulatory policies. The notion of “interoperability” should also address access to data. • The notion of credit bureaus should be addressed in terms of their potential benefits to BoP populations, particularly the unbanked. • Develop policies/guidance as to how firms share scores and/or raw data, loan decisions, and repayment and loss histories with other ACD users and/or traditional credit bureaus (it is possible that different data and scoring methodologies could be complementary). • As further research is conducted and/or as market-specific programs are developed, consider including additional “deep dive” analyses, including: – How can ACD be used to enable trade credit between BoP businesses?

Scientific Consultation and High-Level Meeting on Red Palm Weevil Management 29 to 31 March 2017, Rome THE CURRENT GLOBAL SITUATION AND CHALLENGES OF RED PALM WEEVIL MANAGEMENT PROGRAMS Romeno Faleiro1 1. Mariella, Arlem-Raia, Salcette, Goa 403 720, India Abstract Red Palm Weevil (RPW) Rhynchophorus ferrugineus (Olivier) (Coleoptera: Curculionidae) is indigenous to South and South East Asian countries where it is a major pest of coconut. (...) Efficient and timely decision making is vital in achieving high levels of control/eradication of RPW as seen in the Canary Island RPW control program where the pest was eradicated. In this context collection, transmission and management of data generated on the major RPW- IPM parameters including weevil captures in traps, infestation reports and treatments applied etc. could be achieved by developing GIS based user friendly applications for use by farmers and other personnel involved in the control operations in the field. Limited efficiency of the on-going management program resulting from weakness of human and financial potentials, absence of effective biological control agents, labor intensive control and high cost, lack of farmer’s and stakeholder’s cooperation are the other challenges facing the management practices.

• Potential initiatives for a public sector program • Examples of initiatives (most from North America) • Indicators of success • What is PEPS (“Promoting an Energy- Efficient Public Sector”)? (...) FEMP – Energy Policy Act of 2005 requires agencies to buy ENERGY STAR® or FEMP-designated products • ENERGY STAR® is “endorsement” label for models in top 25% of efficiency • FEMP issues efficiency “specifications” for products not covered by ENERGY STAR® • Two programs cover about 65 different products • Mexico – PEPS-initiated program – Municipal focus: started with 8 cities, now 40 (+ 4 states) – 11 products currently (adding 2-3 per year) – Early results impressive: 15 cities buying EE prdcts. • 11 cities reported 2006 savings: total > US$1 million Water / Wastewater • Most activity is at municipal level • Large unrealized savings opportunities – Leak detection and repair (and decrease pressure) – “Right-size” pumps, couple with EE motors – Apply variable speed drives, multi-speed motors, or multiple staged pumps to match variable flow – Cost assignment – add metering and institute increasing block pricing or pay-as-you-go system • ASE Watergy program is leader 7 Public Lighting • Street and other public lighting – mercury vapor (~ 40 lumens/watt) to high pressure sodium or metal halide (~ 70-100 lumens/watt) – “cut-off” fixtures to avoid wasteful lighting of sky (“light pollution”) – time clocks, light sensor controls (inc. dimming) • Traffic lights – incandescent LED – win-win-win: increased efficacy, longevity, and brightness • Easy, and paybacks usually quick – so good fit with purchasing programs Public Transport: BRT • Bus rapid transit systems can include: – dedicated bus lanes or streets – preference at traffic lights – easy boarding infrastructure (e.g., turnouts and raised platforms) – longer distance between stops – alternative to on-board fare collection • Cheap to implement (relative to light rail) • Typical results: – ridership up – travel time, congestion, and pollution down • Good examples: Bogota, Colombia and Curitiba, Brazil 8 Public Transport: Fleets • Procurement of fuel-efficient or alternative fuel vehicles – Also: “Low rolling-resistance” replacement tires • Maintenance regimens that keep engines in tune and tires fully inflated • Driver training programs: CONAE asserts proper driving behavior can raise fuel economy 30% over poor practice – Capital city of Kerala, India saw 12% increase in fuel efficiency from bus drivers who participated in 3-day training program But Is P.S. (...) • Individual programs have demonstrated impressive savings in some cases … – Clear successes where measurement of savings is simple (e.g., building retrofit programs like CONAE’s APF and FEMP’s Super ESPC) – Success in other cases (e.g., purchasing program) is inferred from limited measurement and proxies, e.g.: • Number of visits to web sites • Awareness/adoption rates shown in surveys • Spillover: states and cities adopting federal program • … but many think intangibles are the key – Required reporting, newsletters, training courses, reduction goals, annual awards program and conference, etc. – “the FEMP movement” How to Get Started • Seek high-level support • Pursue written policy (e.g., law or executive order) – Should establish objectives (general and specific) and strategies, and assign responsibilities • Set Goals – Re savings, investments, and means (e.g., audit 5% of floor space each year) • Keep in mind leveraging possibilities – E.g., external financing, but also: – Piggybacking on non-energy initiatives, environmental policies, utility programs, etc. • Start small – One or two initiatives done well will make way for more acceptance (and funding) • Evaluate – both quantitatively and qualitatively – This will assist in honing the programs, but also help in obtaining the funding to continue and expand
