Building Institutional Capacities for Climate Change Policy Formulation in Developing Countries: The Case of MAPS Chile

This study analyses the MAPS-Chile project from a processes perspective which emphasises decisions, strategic and methodological actions that articulate the relation and interaction between the various institutions and stakeholders involved. It builds on existing literature and develops a framework for the analysis from the perspective of sociology of science and technology. This paper is part […]

Economy-Wide Implications of a Carbon Tax in the Chilean Electricity Generation Sector

This paper aims to analyse the economy-wide implications of a carbon tax applied on the Chilean electricity generation sector as it will act as an economic shock to the country’s gross domestic product (GDP) growth path. In order to get an answer to this, both energy sectoral model and dynamic stochastic generally equilibrium (DSGE) model […]

Information for a developmental approach to mitigation: Linking sectoral and economy-wide models for Brazil, Chile, Colombia, Peru and South Africa

This paper reports on modelling approaches that provide information to answer policy-relevant questions in Brazil, Chile, Colombia, Peru and South Africa. The analysis informs different country contexts; energy-related green house gas (GHG) emissions currently dominate in Chile and South Africa, while those due to agriculture, forestry and land-use (AFOLU) are historically more important in Brazil, […]

The Brazilian Land Use Model (BLUM) training was held in Santiago on the 22nd and 23rd of August 2013. An Agroicone expert from Brazil, Leila Harfuch, presented BLUM so that the Chilean team could understand both the advantages and disadvantages of using it and how it could possibly complement the Chile AFOLU model.

Official Bonn side event

On the 12th of June, the MAPS Programme invited in-country researchers – representing the MAPS processes of Brazil, Chile, Colombia and South Africa – to present preliminary results of their work linking economic and sectoral models at the UNFCCC Climate Change Conference in Bonn, Germany. Chile presented its assessment of five different carbon tax scenarios. Brazil talked about its […]

(26-27 March 2014) The Agriculture, Forestry and Land Use (AFOLU) workshop was held in Santiago, Chile. Participants from four MAPS countries (Brazil, Chile, Colombia and Peru) and from Argentina attended the workshop. The AFOLU Lab was a follow-up of the AgriLab (2012) and LULUCF Lab (2012) and instead of discussing modelling approaches to the sector, the country […]

Mitigation actions: Understanding the variables that affect policy implementation

Mitigation actions are currently a source of both academic and ‘on-the-ground’ interest, especially as they arise within the UNFCCC context as Nationally Appropriate Mitigation Actions (NAMAs). Committing to action at the international level remains, however, an empty contribution to global mitigation efforts unless it is translated into domestic public policy interventions.

Commonalities and differences in approaches to mitigation actions in five developing countries

In light of the ongoing international discussions about the Nationally Appropriate Mitigation Action concept, this study takes instead a more ‘bottom-up’ approach through a comparative analysis of five studies of mitigation actions in Brazil, Colombia, Chile, Peru and South Africa. The analysis shows that mitigation actions are driven by both developmental and climate objectives. The […]

Comparative analysis of mitigation actions in five developing countries

MAPS researchers recently published a ‘bottom-up’ comparative analysis of mitigation actions (MAs) in Brazil, Colombia, Chile, Peru and South Africa in the journal Climate and Development. They argue that MAs are driven by both developmental and climate objectives. Furthermore, MAs that directly address poverty and development seem to have a better chance of being implementation. […]

LAC Facilitators Training Course

 The Facilitators Training Course organised by MAPS and the LEDS GP, was held in Chile in January 2013. The objective of the training was to capacitate mid-career professionals with the skills necessary to facilitate national and/or sub-national processes that through a combination of research, modelling, and stakeholder input, produce an evidence base for GHG mitigation and […]

MAPS / LEDS GP host Facilitators Training Course for Americas and the Caribbean

From 21-25 January 2013, 26 participants gathered at Jahuel, Chile, for the first MAPS/LEDS GP Facilitators Training Course. The course was co-facilitated by Stefan Raubenheimer (Process Director of MAPS International) and Hernán Blanco (Lead Facilitator of MAPS Chile). 26 dynamic change agents from 15 countries across the Americas and Caribbean were handpicked by the course […]

The future of REDD+ and the carbon market

Within the MAPS programme, countries are considering the potential role of forests in their overall climate change mitigation action plans. A recent MAPS workshop held in Iquitos (Peru), LulucF Lab, addressed this subject in depth. The rate of deforestation in many of the MAPS countries calls for strategies that could rapidly and effectively put an […]

Econ Lab 2012: horses for courses

There are a number of complex models that researchers can use to assess the socio-economic implications of mitigation actions and it is important that they choose the one that’s best suited to the specific task at hand. As noted by Prof. Rob Davies, an economist and research associate with the Human Sciences Research Council in […]

Mitigation targets and actions at the UNFCCC Bangkok talks

At the UNFCCC climate negotiations starting in Bangkok this week, 30 August to 5 September 2012, there will be further workshops on mitigation. Some are about commitments, some are about targets for developed countries, and another about mitigation actions by developing countries. There are important issues for both: Workshop on developed country mitigation targets, or […]
