Assessing the missed benefits of countries’ national contributions

Assessing the missed benefits of countries’ national contributions: Results and methodology to quantify the possible cobenefits from ambitious greenhouse gas reductions of countries / Niklas Höhne, Thomas Day, Gesine Hänsel, Hanna Fekete. Nex Climate Institute, 30 March 2015, 44 p.

Presentation (© NewClimate Institute) :

This report elaborated by NewClimate Institute with support from Climate Action Network (CAN), investigates the co-benefits associated with countries’ Intended Nationally Determined Contributions (INDCs).

This report first provides an overview of the general co-benefits that climate action may have and how they could be used to incentivise further ambitious greenhouse gas (GHG) reductions. We then provide illustrative results for the cobenefits achieved by the INDCs of the U.S., China and the EU, as well as an indication of the forgone or missed benefits that could have been achieved by 2°C compatible action.
