AVOID 1: Achievement of international near term targets for CO2 emissions mitigation

June 16, 2010

This study examines the potential for energy related CO2 emissions mitigation in China and India to 2020. The main mitigation options, barriers to adoption, long term carbon saving potential and policy levers are given for the following sectors: power, industry, buildings, and transport.

The broad conclusion is that […]

AVOID 1: The economics and climate change impacts of various greenhouse gas emission pathways and a comparison between base line and policy emissions scenarios

January 22, 2010

Deliverable 1 of AVOID-WS1 produced emission scenarios that represented possible future global emission pathways for greenhouse gases during the 21st century. This was detailed in a simple fashion by varying three parameters: the year in which emissions peak globally, the rate of emission reduction (R), and the […]

AVOID 1: Global Greenhouse Gases Emissions Review (LULUCF)

October 9, 2009

This report assess the current knowledge about CO2 emissions from land use change over the last century. For the previous 25 years, 20% of all anthropogenic CO2 emissions came from LULUCF (Land Use, Land Use Change and Forestry). Most landuse change emissions are from deforestation, but there is […]

AVOID 1: Global Greenhouse Gases Emissions Review

September 28, 2009

The aim of this report is to review existing global emission inventories of the six Kyoto greenhouse gases (GHGs) including carbon dioxide (CO2), methane (CH4), nitrous oxide (N2O), hydrofluorocarbons (HFCs), perfluorocarbons (PFCs) and sulphur hexafluoride (SF6).

The following data sources are considered:

United Nations Framework Convention on Climate […]

AVOID 1: Review of Literature subsequent to IPCC AR4

July 25, 2009

This report provides a review of the most relevant recent literature in the areas of climate science, impacts of climate change and climate change economics, with a focus on post IPCC Fourth Assessment report work. It also provides information on the key research gaps which might have a […]
