End-use energy efficiency in Asia and the Pacific : potential for and challenges to improvement
Improving end-use energy efficiency in the industrial sector
Improving end-use energy efficiency in the road transport sector
Improving end-use energy efficiency in the construction and buildings sector
Improving the end-use energy efficiency of electrical appliances
Conclusions and recommendations.
This publication is based on the discussions of an expert group meeting, held in November 2002, which considered issues relating to the promotion of greater end-use energy efficiency in the Asia and Pacific region, in support of a sustainable energy future. The meeting drew a number of conclusions (focusing on the four major energy-intensive sectors of industry, road transport, construction and buildings, and domestic electrical appliances), which will inform future policy development.

The introduction of a West African regional peacekeeping force into the Liberian civil war in August 1990 effectively catapulted this "obscure" conflict on to the centre stage of international diplomacy. By 1993, when the UN began a direct involvement in the conflict, Liberia had become a test case for the ability of regional organizations and the UN to jointly mediate armed conflict. The objective of this study is to examine the contributions of the Economic Community of West African States (ECOWAS) to the resolution of the Liberian conflict through the initiation and implementation of a programme of disarmament.
