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, […]

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. […]
