December 2011–November 2013
The project aims to provide a realistic evaluation of the mitigation pledges of the analysed countries (Brazil, China, India, Mexico, South Africa and South Korea) relative to their ‘business-as-usual’ development. This will be put into the context of the feasibility of such reductions and in the global context of the agreed objective to limit temperature increase to 2°C.
In addition the project will provide policy analysis on the status of low carbon development strategies and nationally appropriate mitigation actions (NAMAs). This will include analysis of the status and level of monitoring, reporting and verification (MRV) of NAMAs in these countries.
