    Timor-Leste, Eastern Asia, Oceania

    The Country Environmental Analysis (CEA) for Timor-Leste identifies environmental priorities through a systematic review of environmental issues in natural resources management and environmental health in the context of the country's economic development and environmental institutions. Lack of data has been the main limitation in presenting a more rigorous analysis. Nevertheless, the report builds on the best available secondary data, presents new data on the country's wealth composition, and derives new results on the costs of water and air pollution.

    arrives just as the international community embarks on a
    two-year process to secure a new global framework to limit
    the amounts of greenhouse gases (GHGs) entering the
    atmosphere and devise ways to help developing countries
    adapt to and prepare themselves for the effects of climate
    change. At the World Bank, the author believe that climate

    Based on a literature review and expert
    interviews, this paper analyzes the most important climate
    impacts on development goals and explores relevant
    institutions in the context of mainstreaming climate
    adaptation into development assistance in Mozambique.
    Climate variability and change can significantly hinder
    progress toward attaining the Millennium Development Goals
    and poverty aggravates the country's climate

    This report assesses the economic
    impacts of climate change on agriculture in Zambia, using
    the Ricardian method. A multiple linear regression model
    with net revenue per hectare as response variable has been
    fitted with climate, hydrological, soil, and socioeconomic
    variables as explanatory variables. There is one main
    cropping season in Zambia, lasting from November to April.
    Crop production in this period depends solely on rains.

    The World Bank's mission is to
    alleviate poverty and support sustainable development.
    Climate change is a serious environmental challenge that
    could undermine these goals. Since the industrial
    revolution, the mean surface temperature of earth has
    increased an average 2 degree Celsius due to the
    accumulation of greenhouse gases in the atmosphere. Most of
    this change has occurred in the past 30 to 40 years, and the

    The report is organized as follows. The
    next section puts the study into context by briefly
    discussing the global EACC study and the EACC methodology,
    which was applied in this study at a more disaggregated
    level. The section highlights the differential impacts of
    climate change among different regions of the world,
    including Africa. Chapter three presents an overview of the
    methodology used, including the key assumptions. An effort

    This country note briefly summarizes
    information relevant to both climate change and agriculture
    in Chile, with focus on policy developments (including
    action plans and programs) and institutional make-up. Like
    most countries in Latin America, Chile has submitted one
    national communication to the United Nations Framework
    Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC) with a second one
    under preparation. Agriculture contributes little, in

    Due to climate change and increasing
    food prices, emphasis needs to be placed on addressing water
    management as a key determinant for agricultural production
    and productivity. However, governments and donors have
    tended to pay relatively little attention to this area, and
    investments remain low. This report, which is based on
    economic and sector work carried out in the Water Anchor of
    the World Bank, highlights the importance of improving water
