AVOID 1: The implications of climate policy for avoided impacts on water and food security

January 28, 2010

This project has assessed the impacts of climate change avoided by a set of climate policies, focusing on water resources stress, crop production and undernourishment.

Climate change has the potential to increase water resources stresses for many millions of people. The climate policies evaluated here reduce the effects […]

AVOID 1: Review of advanced Carbon Capture technologies

January 14, 2010

This report reviews carbon dioxide (CO2) capture technologies, including those that might come online in the 2020s. It describes the types of technology being developed and how efficiency will increase with development. It also describes the potential for synergies between CO2 capture systems and heavy emitting industry.

Two […]

AVOID 1: Mitigation scenarios of ocean acidification using simple and complex models

October 29, 2009

Ocean acidification as a result of absorption of CO2 from the atmosphere is believed to have potentially detrimental impacts on ecosystems and biogeochemical cycles in the ocean, affecting both its productivity and its ability to act as a “buffer” to climate change.

A combination of simple and complex […]

AVOID 1: Report on costs of different paths towards a low carbon world

October 9, 2009

This report describes running nine AVOID emissions scenarios through the WITCH economic model, the results of which are that:

temperature stabilization compatible with the targets of the European Union and the G8 might have important economic repercussions. The costs of such policies depend on when the transaction to […]

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 […]
