Formulation of a Nationally Determined Contribution to Climate Change Mitigation in Colombia

by Ricardo Delgado, Ángela Cadena and Mónica Espinosa, Universidad de los Andes (Colombia)

DOI 10.12910/EAI2016-016

Defining a Nationally Determined Contribution to Climate Change Mitigation is a process that requires several rounds of political negotiations and strong technical and scientific data and information. In countries like Colombia, this process is particularly sensitive considering the requirements of economic development, and overcoming poverty and vulnerability

Deep Decarbonization Pathways (DDPs): A catalyst for the Climate Change Debate

During 2015, most national governments submitted Intended Nationally Determined Contributions (INDCs) as part of the process towards a new global climate agreement under the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change. These INDCs, codified in the Paris agreement, are mostly focused on emission targets set by 2025 or 2030. Hence they do not provide a clear vision of the profound transformation of energy systems required by mid-century to maintain the 2 °C threshold

COP21 marked a significant turning point for global climate policy; all nations in the world are called on to address greenhouse gas emissions down to the maximum 2 °C threshold (in the effort to limit temperature increase to 1.5 °C). For this target to be achieved during the next half century, knowledge and wisdom from around the world must be built up and shared

La Convenzione-quadro sui cambiamenti climatici, da Rio a Parigi

di Domenico Gaudioso, ISPRA

La COP21 di Parigi è stato  il culmine di un processo di negoziazione avviato nel 1992 con l’approvazione della Convenzione-quadro sui cambiamenti climatici. In questo documento si riassumono i passi principali del negoziato, attraverso le decisioni principali assunte anno per anno dai Paesi firmatari riuniti nelle Conferenze delle Parti della Convenzione

Integrating socio-economic development and decarbonisation in South Africa

by Hilton Trollip, Tara Caetano, Alison Hughes and Bruno Merven, Energy Research Centre, University of Cape Town

DOI 10.12910/EAI2016-018

South Africa is one of the few countries in the world with both high unemployment and low employment elasticities, largely owing to a low-skilled labour force and an economy geared to high-skilled, high-productivity growth. On top of this, it has much higher than average greenhouse gas emissions than similar developing countries both per capita and per unit economic output, these emissions being the result of an energy- and emissions-intensive economy historically formed to exploit South African mineral and coal resources
