From Lima to Paris: towards a political consensus on the 100 billion climate finance / Sani Zou, Climate 365, 15/10/2015

Significant progress is being made to produce an agreement text in time for the UNFCCC COP21, but tension is in the air. The last of 122 INDCs has been received, and the co-chairs’ tool was revised to pull negotiations into shape in the final round of official meetings coming up next week in Bonn… lire la suite

Canadian climate policy and your vote / Mark Jaccard, Sustainability suspicions, 15/10/2015

“Policy academics are cheap dates.” One of my mentors, professor Aiden Vining, loved saying that.

India’s Intended Nationally Determined Contribution, or INDC, has a headline intensity pledge to reduce emissions intensity 33-35% by 2030 from a 2005 baseline. The form of this pledge makes clear that India’s total emissions will increase through 2030, as is necessary for development, but with emissions growing at a slower pace per unit of GDP. What does this target imply domestically, given India’s development needs, its low emissions base and extremely low per capita emissions?
