  • Feasibility Assessment: Short-Lived Climate Pollutants Finance Innovation Facility

    Type: 
    Publication
    Publication date:
    Objective:

    This report focuses on investigating the SLCP mitigation technologies offering the highest mitigation potential of the three major SLCPs: black carbon, hydrofluorocarbons (HFCs), and methane, and each of the sectors identified by the CCAC sector initiatives. The report assesses the barriers to expediently mobilise private financial flows towards SLCP mitigating technologies in a number of key sector and markets; analyse the financial profiles of the key technologies.

  • Could agriculture help to prevent further climate change?

    Publication date:
    Objective:
    Approach:

    There is growing evidence that greenhouse gas emissions from human activity contribute to climate change. Many people blame modern farming practices for accelerating this - agriculture produces between 16.8 and 32.2 percent of global greenhouse gas emissions. But could agriculture also hold some solutions to climate change?Research for Geenpeace
    International by the University of Aberdeen, in the UK, analyses the
    contribution of modern farming to human-induced climate change. The main

  • Emission Scenarios for Non-CO2 Greenhouse Gases in the EU-27--Mitigation Potentials and Costs in 2020

    Type: 
    Publication
    Publication date:
    Objective:
    Sectors:

    To provide quantitative information for the debate on the burden sharing of the European Union target to reduce greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions in 2020 by 20 per cent, this report assesses the potential and costs for further mitigation of the non-carbon-dioxide (CO2) GHG emissions beyond the currently agreed policies. It addresses the non-CO2 gases included in the Kyoto protocol [i.e., methane (CH4); nitrous oxide (N2O); and the three F-gases: hydrofluorocarbons (HFCs), perfluorocarbons (PFCs) and sulphur hexafluoride (SF6).

  • Shanxi Coal Bed Methane Development and Utilization

    Type: 
    Publication
    Publication date:

    The objective of the Shanxi Coal Bed Methane Development and Utilization Project is to increase the production and utilization of Coal Bed Methane (CBM) and Coal Mine Methane (CMM) to replace coal as a fuel for thermal use and to reduce Green House Gas (GHGs) and local air pollutants associated with coal combustion in China.
