Energy and Thermal Efficiency in Government-Subsidised Housing in South Africa: A Case Study on Implementation

The objective of this study is to isolate the factors that lead to the implementation of interventions that may have an impact on reducing greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions in developing countries. This case study is part of a series looking to collect…

Reflections and Learnings from Co-Impacts Assessment under the MAPS Programme

The authors acknowledge two key underlying contextual considerations in this analysis that frames the work that underpins this paper. Firstly, the existence of a dominant approach to climate mitigation work in developing countries which implicitly p…

The Impact of Stranding Power Sector Assets in South Africa Using a linked model to understand economy-wide implications

The potential impacts of stranded power sector assets in South Africa is highlighted in this paper, using a partially linked energy and economic model to examine the effect of increased mitigation targets for the risks of stranded assets and therefo…

Agricultural Emissions Mitigation : Understanding Modelling and Policy Implications

"Climate change has clear and obvious impacts on agricultural production. In turn, the agricultural sector also contributes to emissions. Agriculture contributes 50% of global methane (CH4) emissions, 60% of global nitrous oxide (N²0) emissions an…

Energy Modelling for the Transport Sector A Summary of the SATIM Methodology

"Energy economy environment models such as TIMES are often used to look at opportunities and costs of reducing greenhouse gasses (GHGs). The South African TIMES model (SATIM) has been developed for this purpose and its methodology is documented onli…

Equitable Access to Sustainable Development Relevance to Negotiations and Actions on Climate Change

"This paper reflects on the basis and relevance of equitable access to sustainable development (EASD) in the UNFCCC negotiations and on the various perspectives and approaches to achieve fairness in the implementation of the Convention. It neither a…

Reducing Inequality and Poverty while Mitigating Climate Change Key Challenges for Research and Practice in Middle Income Countries in Africa and Latin America

"What is the relationship between emissions, inequality and poverty? Growing wealth supposedly correlates with increasing emissions. Rich countries are historically high in per capita emissions, whereas poor countries have low per capita emissio…

Poverty and Climate Change Mitigation A Brief Inspiration

"This brief presents the concept of poverty alleviating mitigation actions as a framework to rethink the way programs and policies for reducing emissions are structured in order to reduce both poverty and emissions. To effectively achieve both …

Low Carbon Development & Poverty: Exploring Poverty Alleviating and Mitigation Action in Developing Countries

"Climate change and poverty generally fall into the adaptation category in current research literature and policymaking. If we acknowledge current findings of poverty research, we find that this separation between mitigation and adaptation does n…

Energy Modelling for the Industrial Sector: A Summary of the SATIM Methodology

"The industrial sector in South Africa accounted for 40% of final energy consumption in 2006 and is, in general, energy intensive, being dominated by heavy industries in the mining and metals refining sub-sectors. Mitigation actions designed around …

Understanding the Interface between LCDs, NAMAs and Mitigation Actions

"The expert discussion in this Briefing has identified issues and questions for future research by considering the concepts and their interface from the domestic perspective of a developing country. MAPS will explore some of these further through a…

Econ Lab Workshop

"The objective of this thought exercise was for researchers and modellers from these developing countries to consider the wide range of models that are available to them. They discussed how different models can be brought together to produce more …

Mitigation Action, NAMAs and Low Carbon Development Strategies: Building a Common Understanding

"In order to implement effective mitigation actions, one needs to have a common understanding of what they are, and how they can be supported by domestic and international policy. Hence a set of working definitions is helpful. To date there is no br…

Energy Modelling for the Residential Sector A Summary of the SATIM Methodology

"Energy economy environment models such as TIMES are often used to look at opportunities and costs of reducing greenhouse gases (GHGs). The South African TIMES model(SATIM) has been developed for this purpose and its methodology is documented online…

Energy Modelling for Liquid Fuels and Gas Supply A Summary of the SATIM Methodology

"Energy economy environment models such as TIMES are often used to look at opportunities and costs of reducing greenhouse gases (GHGs). The South African TIMES model (SATIM) has been developed for this purpose and its methodology is documented onlin…

Water and Energy in the LTMS

"The purpose of this paper is to provide an overview of the relationship between energy and water in South Africa and how these have been included in the Long Term Mitigation Scenarios (LTMS) and other modeling exercises. It aims to provide context…

Marginal Abatement Cost Curves Mitigation Decision Tools

"The rapidly increasing greenhouse gas emissions (GHG) in the world have been proven to contribute to climate change, with dramatic harmful consequences to human communities and many non human animal and plant species. This has led policy makers in …

Energy Modelling for the Commercial Sector A Summary of the SATIM Methodology

"Energy economy environment models such as TIMES are often used to look at opportunities and costs of reducing greenhouse gases (GHGs). The South African TIMES model (SATIM) has been developed for this purpose and its methodology is documented onlin…

Energy Modelling for the Electricity Supply Sector A Summary of the SATIM Methodology

"Energy economy environment models such as TIMES are often used to look at opportunities and costs of reducing greenhouse gases (GHG’s). The South African TIMES model (SATIM) has been developed for this purpose and its methodology is documented onl…

The Challenges of Linking Sectoral and Economy Wide Models

"The purpose of this brief is to highlight some of the issues arising in linking models for use in policy analysis and to share some of the approaches that have been explored by researchers in MAPS to address these challenges. It aims to provide oth…
