AVOID 1: India’s CO2 emissions pathway to 2050

October 30, 2012
|

Two low-carbon scenarios are considered in this study – the first with no specific technology limitations, and the second with a number of restrictions, the most important being that no carbon capture and storage (CCS) is allowed to be deployed, gas imports are limited, and biomass usage in […]

AVOID 1: Scoping study: modelling the interaction between mitigation and adaptation for decision making

August 16, 2012
|

Key outcomes

• Adaptation and mitigation are complementary measures.

• Globally, one cannot trade the concept of ‘1 degree of mitigation’ with that of ‘1 degree of adaptation’, owing to the very different potential for adaptation in different sectors and regions, the issue of scale, the dynamics of […]

AVOID 1: Development of emissions pathways meeting a range of long term temperature targets

August 8, 2012
|

There is a wide range of future greenhouse-gas emissions pathways that meet any given climate target. Whilst the AVOID programme has produced a large number of emissions scenarios and pathways to date, AVOID has not produced a systematic assessment of the different mitigated emissions pathways that are […]

AVOID 1: Comparison of AVOID work with overseas analyses

August 8, 2012
|

AVOID has developed a large number of emissions scenarios and made projections of future climate changes associate with each. To date no direct quantitative comparison with other modelling frameworks has been performed. This study compares AVOID climate projections with those from a number of different models, from Integrated […]
