On 10 September, electricity powered by a solar-diesel hybrid minigrid system was switched on for the first time in les Côteaux, in the south of Haiti. The minigrid, which is part of UNEP's sustainable energy project in Haiti, will start operating in the whole of les Côteaux by the end of September.

With a projected world population of more than 9 billion people in 2050 and rapid economic growth across developing and emerging economies, demand for natural resources, especially raw materials, is expected to continue to rise strongly. Against this background, increasing resource efficiency is an important factor in delivering environmental and climate protection, employment, social benefits and sustainable green growth. This is according to a new report released by UNEP's International Resource Panel (IRP). The new report assesses further interlinkages, synergies and trade-offs among natural resource-related SDGs that decision-makers must take into account in formulating policies for implementing the Sustainable Development Goals.

According to a recently released UNEP report, turtles are globally threatened and are particularly vulnerable when returning to their natal beaches to lay their eggs. Growing rise of the awareness of their threatened status has led to protection in many regions including the Western Indian Ocean. However, the threat to sea turtles is high due to inadequate compliance with regulations. Read more: http://bit.ly/1eUFkpp

Citizens and organisations will now be able to gain access to an all new interactive visual dashboard on UNEPLive! This is following UNEP's commissioning of MODUL University Vienna to develop a smart web intelligence system for the environment. The Web intelligence platform will provide effective ways to retrieve the most relevant content from a comprehensive environmental knowledge archive allowing users to spot geographic patterns, identify shifts in opinions on environmental matters, and track the influence of stakeholders on a given public discussion.

Did you know that a higher concentration of carbon dioxide lowers the amount of zinc, iron and protein, and raises the starch and sugar content in some of the world's major food crops such as wheat and rice? This is according to a recent book released by our colleagues at FAO. The book's provides a assessment on climate change and its implication in global food security and trade. It also underscores the potential impact #climatechange could have on health and nutrition by exacerbating the prevalence of hidden hunger - the chronic lack of vitamins and minerals - and obesity.

More reasons to celebrate International Ozone Day. Ozone protection efforts have significantly contributed to the mitigation of #climatechange by averting more than 135 billion tonnes of carbon dioxide equivalent emissions going into the atmosphere. #ViennaConvention #MontrealProtocol #UN #UNEP #Environment #PreciousOzone

Why is it important to regulate wastewater management through #environmental law?
Wastewater can result in significant pollution of soil and water resources and negatively affect #biodiversity and the quality of drinking supplies.

According to a new UNEP report, the West Indian Ocean coastal region, home to over 60 million people and largely dependent on marine ecosystems for food and jobs, is under threat. The region is experiencing a depletion in its #biodiversity and natural resources due to urbanisation and unsustainable fishing and extraction practices. More: http://bit.ly/1IbvBWR
