NGO analytical support

Climate Analytics provides analytical support to NGOs.

Project period

In 2009, Climate Analytics prepared a number of reports commissioned by NGOs. These include:

The Climate Institute commissioned a report “How feasible is changing track? Scenario analysis on the implications of changing emission tracks after 2020, from an insufficient global deal on 2020 reductions, to 2°C and 1.5°C pathways”, which tests whether emissions can be reduced fast enough post-2020 to avoid dangerous levels of climate change after a deal with insufficient 2020 emission reductions at the Copenhagen negotiation.

Climate Analytics provided scientific and policy support to the development of an NGO treaty including emission goals and targets, an analysis of Annex I 2050 emission reduction targets and policy input, for example on REDD. In June 2009, a coalition of NGO’s and a group of 47 NGO experts released “A Copenhagen Climate Treaty Version 1.0: A Proposal for a Copenhagen Agreement by members of the NGO community”, which was a blueprint for an amended Kyoto Protocol and a new Copenhagen Protocol to be agreed in December 2009 in Copenhagen.

Climate Analytics was also commissioned by Greenpeace Switzerland to prepare a scenario study of the “Projected global warming under a worldwide climate policy following Switzerland’s example”.
