Informing India's Energy and Climate Debate: Policy Lessons from Modelling Studies

What should India put forward as the mitigation component of its climate contribution (or ‘Intended Nationally Determined Contribution’ (INDC))? Since energy accounts for 77% of India’s greenhouse gas emissions, this question can only be answered as one part of a larger discussion about India’s energy future. This study conducts a comparative review of seven recent […]

Brazil beyond 2020: from deforestation to the energy challenge

MAPS-affiliated researchers in Brazil recently published a comparative analysis of three long-term GHG emissions scenarios for Brazil. According to their analysis, Brazil is in a good position to meet voluntary mitigation goals pledged to the UNFCCC up to 2020. This is due to successful recent efforts to reduce deforestation. If this trend continues, the energy […]
