  • Climate-smart development: Adding up the benefits of actions that help build prosperity, end poverty and combat climate change

    Type: 
    Publication
    Publication date: 
    Wednesday, January 1, 2014
    Objective: 

    This report argues that smart development policies and projects can also slow the pace of adverse climate changes and that the objectives of economic development and climate protection can compliment one another. It uses new modelling tools to examine the range of benefits ambitious climate mitigation policies can produce across the transportation, industry and building sectors in the United States, China, the European Union, India, Mexico and Brazil. It also describes the multiple benefits of four development project simulations scaled up to the national level.

  • The Evidence of Benefits for Poor People of Increased Renewable Electricity Capacity: Literature Review

    Type: 
    Publication
    Publication date: 
    Tuesday, January 1, 2013
    Objective: 

    Lack of access to electricity is seen as a major constraint to economic growth and increased welfare in developing countries. In this report, the authors conducted a review of the evidence that investments in electricity-generating capacity have benefits for poor people, and what factors influence that relationship. The review analyzes a large and diverse range of literature dealing with the poverty impacts of increased generation capacity.

  • Climate change mitigation revisited: low-carbon energy transitions for China and India

    Type: 
    Publication
    Publication date: 
    Thursday, January 1, 2009
    Objective: 

    China and India are heavily dependent on high carbon fossil fuels. This article elaborates on the implications of low carbon energy transitions in the two countries, which can mitigate their serious contribution to climate change while allowing economic growth. Three modelling case studies are presented: for the Chinese power sector; the economy of Beijing; and rural Indian households without access to electricity. They demonstrate a significant reduction in greenhouse gas emissions and energy use, while costs are likely to increase.

  • Harnessing market mechanisms to promote sustainable development: lessons from China

    Type: 
    Publication
    Publication date: 
    Sunday, January 1, 2012
    Objective: 

    The Clean Development Mechanism (CDM) was created under the Kyoto Protocol to enable developing countries to sell carbon credits to developed countries. According to this ‘Inside story on climate compatible development’ by the Climate and Development Knowledge Network, China’s extraordinary embrace of the market opportunities afforded by the CDM has provided the country with valuable experience in carbon markets, allowing it to develop and test appropriate systems.

  • Greenhouse gas market 2012: new markets, new mechanisms, new opportunities

    Type: 
    Publication
    Publication date: 
    Sunday, January 1, 2012
    Objective: 

    This annual flagship publication by the International Emissions Trading Association (IETA) provides a comprehensive guide to the latest developments in global carbon markets, bringing together market specialists in a series of expert contributions. The report notes that global carbon markets have continued to grow in 2012 despite difficulties in core markets in the European Union. The report finds that new cap-and-trade programmes are emerging, particularly in the Pacific Rim region, as nations embrace the use of market-based mechanisms to reduce emissions.

  • New market mechanisms: prerequisites for implementation

    Type: 
    Publication
    Publication date: 
    Sunday, January 1, 2012
    Objective: 

    The Durban conference decided to establish a new market based mechanism that is to cover a broad segment of a country’s economy. The question is, however, which developing countries would actually be able to implement such a mechanism. The introduction of the EU emission trading system highlighted the many challenges that even advanced developed countries face when establishing a carbon market. This paper, therefore, aims to explore the essential prerequisites for the implementation of new market mechanisms (NMM).

  • Respecting rights, delivering development: forest tenure reform since Rio 1992

    Type: 
    Publication
    Publication date: 
    Tuesday, May 1, 2012
    Objective: 

    This report evaluates the progress achieved in forest management by indigenous people and local communities, which was set as a key objective at the 1992 Earth Summit held in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil.

  • Low carbon growth country studies – getting started: experience from six countries

    Type: 
    Publication
    Publication date: 
    Tuesday, September 1, 2009
    Objective: 
    Approach: 

    This document is a review of the low carbon growth studies conducted in six emerging economies: Brazil, China, India, Indonesia, Mexico and South Africa. These countries, with the help of the Energy Sector Management Assistance Programme (ESMAP), have initiated country specific studies to assess development goals in conjunction with greenhouse gas mitigation opportunities. The aim is to present a framework for other countries who wish to implement studies of their own. The paper is structured to mirror the seven step process of establishing a low carbon growth country study.
