Emphasis has been placed on reducing the impact of climate change, through improving energy efficiency; expanding the use of clean energy sources; reducing greenhouse gas emissions, and arresting deforestation. Sustainable management of forest and other natural resources for provision of clean water supplies, protection of biological diversity, and sequestration of carbon from the atmosphere to offset greenhouse gas emissions are part of eSYS’s assistance to address climate change.
