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...

The (Missing) Link : Climate Change Mitigation and Poverty

"The purpose of this paper, that focuses on the gaps between poverty reduction and climate mitigation, is fourfold: The first task is to remind us why, even under conditions of extreme poverty, climate mitigation cannot be ignored or overlooked. ...

Operationalising an Equity Reference Framework in the Climate Change Regime Legal and Technical Perspectives

"This paper identifies legal, architectural and technical options for the operationalisation of the ERF in climate change regime. Section 2 of this paper outlines the design of the process by which the ERF, which contains technical and diplomat...

European Experiences with Burden Sharing in Climate Change Lessons Learned for the Post-2020 Negotiations

"Substantial differences exist between the situation around the 1997 EU burden sharing discussions and the current discussions on international climate change agreements for 2020. Here we discuss the main differences that are relevant for the iden...

Information for a Developmental Approach to Mitigation Linking Sectoral and Economy Wide Models for Brazil, Chile, Colombia, Peru and South Africa

"Policy-­makers in developing countries are concerned with charting the development path of their economy and society. Providing information on the potential socio-economic benefits of a transition to a low-carbon society requires improved tools...

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 ...

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...

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 bot...

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...

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...

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 mor...

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 ...

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 i...

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 o...

Energy Modelling for the Agricultural Sector A Summary of the SATIM Model Methodology

"This policy brief aims to communicate the methods used by researchers to model possible outcomes of different actions to curb GHG emissions associated with agriculture. Climate change has clear and obvious impacts on agricultural production. In t...

Equitable Access to Sustainable Development in a Carbon Constrained World

"This brief outlines a range of principles and criteria to ensure equitable access to sustainable development in the face of global climate change. Based on work by experts from Brazil, South Africa, India and China (BASIC countries) as a con...

Thoughts on the Choice of Form of an INDC

Countries have to choose a specific form with which to express their contribution in the context of adopting the new climate agreement under the UNFCCC in 2015. The form and the way it is communicated and visualized, is distinct from the scale of ...

Geneva was Quick – but How Deep Will Paris Go?

In this blog, the climate negotiation process and following agreements were briefly discussed. Ideas on key areas by all delegates/negotiators were put on the table – on mitigation, adaptation, finance, technology, capacity‐building and transpare...

How Low Can you Go? Climate Talks in Lima

The meetings in Lima, Peru took place from 1 to 12 December 2014 being the 10th session of the Conference of the Parties serving as the Meeting of the Parties to the Kyoto Protocol (CMP10). It was formally the 20th session of the Conference of th...

Guidelines for the Selection of Long-Range Energy Systems Modelling Platforms to Support MAPS Processes

"A number of countries in South America, including Peru, Brazil, Chile and Colombia are collaborating on long-term national climate planning through the Mitigation Action Plans and Scenarios (MAPS) platform. Under MAPS, countries explore different...
