Gap analysis National EE indicators Class A = 50 kWh/m2/year; NZEB – 2021 (if technically, economically and functionally feasible ) UNECE Framework • building heating and cooling requirements – up to 25 kWh/m2/year • total primary energy use in buildings’ conditioned spaces, including heating, ventilation, cooling and hot water, can be limited to 45 kWh/m2/year • including plug-in loads (appliances) – up to 90 kWh/m2/year • Legal: NDC2 are not in line with EE targets; Secondary legislation is not updated to new decarbonization commitment; Mandatory energy performance monitoring requirements are absent, Energy Certificate of the building is not integrated in business model on the market. • Capacity development: Specific incentives for improving compliance with more ambitios building energy codes are absent; low awareness on the benefits of energy efficiency at the individual level can preclude or limit the introduction of energy efficiency measures both at individual and community level • Technology: low readiness at national level to implement advanced clean technologies. Life-cycle cost is not used to assess the new technologies. • Investments and financial incentives: ESCO marked underdeveloped due to missing financial instruments; Low energy prices (due to subsidy) also make the payback periods for energy efficiency improvements too long to be considered attractive by banks, other financial institutions and population. 5 CONCLUSIONS • Energy Efficiency targets (including Building’s) to be updated to NDC2 climate targets (MEI) • Renewable energy consideration to be mandatory for building design and certification (MEI, MARDE ) • Certification of existing residential and non-residential buildings to be implemented in marked model (MEI, MARDE) • The minimum energy performance standards should be more ambitious for both new and existing buildings.

Have traditional ‘safe-havens’ become targets for unscrupulous military tacticians? Can humanitarian agencies do the work of bringing relief without becoming targets themselves? (...)

Ranging from handguns to automatics and anti-tank guns, small arms and light weapons (SALW) are a major component of illicit armies and a main target for police. However, for peacekeepers and military officers, confiscating a stock of weapons is hardly a sustainable victory. (...) The challenge is an especially difficult one, he explained, because most illicit SALW were at one time legally produced. Unable to target the legitimate sources of weapons, policies have instead focused on their point of departure from the legal market. (...) However, those concerned with enforcing the innovative tracing mechanism face major obstacles. Marking weapons at their point of production is a key feature of the Programme of Action, but marking them at the point of import -- a major area of international contention -- is not.

Towards that end, the Government had developed a conditional cash transfer programme which targeted families most vulnerable to poverty.  As of August, approximately 4.4 million households were benefitting from the flagship social development initiative.  The World Bank had recently hailed it as one of the largest and best-targeted social safety net programmes in the world. (...) The representative of Brazil said that, over the past decade, his country had experienced an unprecedented drop in inequality thanks, among other factors, to the Government’s inclusive definition of families who were the target of its programmes.  Had Brazil not targeted all kinds of families — single parent, same sex, no children, no parent families— it would not have lifted 36 million people out of poverty.
