Asia-Pacific Network: APN Policy Brief: Towards a Better Water-Energy-Carbon Nexus in Cities

Dear colleagues,

It’s my pleasure to announce the launch of “APN Global Change Perspectives”— a new policy brief series that aims to bring the latest evidence, insights, potential alternatives and recommendations on issues of global change to the attention of the policymaking community in Asia and the Pacific.

Starting from today over a six-week period, we will release the first six issues, which summarise the outcomes of recently-completed projects under APN’s Low Carbon Initiatives Framework.

In today’s first issue, “Towards a Better Water-Energy-Carbon Nexus in Cities”, Dr. Shobhakar Dhakal of Asian Institute of Technology and his team takes a new look at the need and options for designing and sustainably managing urban water and sanitation utility services in Asian cities. Highlighting a case study of waste water management in Delhi, India, the authors present a number of recommendations on options to reduce net energy-carbon footprints in the design and operation of water management systems.

The Policy Brief can be downloaded from:

Risk management – Principles and guidelines   ISO 31000:2009 provides principles and

generic guidelines on risk management.

ISO 31000:2009 can be used by any public, private or community enterprise, association,

group or individual. Therefore, ISO 31000:2009 is not specific to any industry or sector.

ISO 31000:2009 can be applied throughout the life of an organization, and to a wide range

of activities, including strategies and decisions, operations, processes, functions, projects,

products, services and assets.

ISO 31000:2009 can be applied to any type of risk, whatever its nature, whether having

positive or negative consequences.

Although ISO 31000:2009 provides generic guidelines, it is not intended to promote

uniformity of risk management across organizations. The design and implementation of

risk management plans and frameworks will need to take into account the varying needs of

a specific organization, its particular objectives, context, structure, operations, processes,

functions, projects, products, services, or assets and specific practices employed.

It is intended that ISO 31000:2009 be utilized to harmonize risk management processes in

existing and future standards. It provides a common approach in support of standards

dealing with specific risks and/or sectors, and does not replace those standards.

ISO 31000:2009 is not intended for the purpose of certification
