Modelling climate policies of major emitters

Technical background report on analysis of current and potential climate policies for enhancing mitigation ambition in the major emitting countries.

This project identifies important climate policies of the major emitters and estimates their impact on emissions. The analysis, conducted together with PBL, IIASA and Ecofys for the European Commission, first considers implemented and planned policies and checks, whether current trends are sufficient for the countries to achieve their 2020 mitigation commitments. It then goes one step further and estimates potential reductions if climate policies would be implemented in areas related to other national priorities (such as energy access or air quality).

The work follows up on previous work of PBL and Ecofys for the European Commission, starting in 2012.
