National monitoring, reporting and evaluation of climate change adaptation in Europe. European Environment Agency, December 2015, 68 p. (Technical report No 20/2015) http://www.eea.europa.eu/publications/national-monitoring-reporting-and-evaluation
This report provides new insights into adaptation monitoring, reporting and evaluation systems at the national level in Europe and constitutes the first attempt to consolidate emerging information across European countries. It aims to offer reliable and targeted information to support the effective and efficient implementation of climate adaptation policies and actions at the national level in Europe.
Environmental Impact and Pro-Environmental Behavior: Correlations to Income and Environmental Concern / Bruderer Enzler, H., & Diekmann, A. ETH Zurich Sociology, october 2105, 35 p. (Working Papers No. 9) http://www.socio.ethz.ch/en/research/energyconsumption.html
Switzerland, like many other countries, has set targets to reduce greenhouse gas emissions. Private households play a significant part in achieving these aims. Therefore, it is important to know which factors are related to emissions. So far, most studies have focused on income, household size and other structural factors while neglecting the potential relevance of attitudinal variables such as environmental concern. Those studies that did examine environmental attitudes were mostly based on “intent-oriented” measures of pro-environmental behavior instead of actual environmental impacts…
The Path towards 1.5 degrees Celsius / Awwad Atiah Alharthi. Brussels : CEPS, December 2015, 10 p. (No. 336) https://www.ceps.eu/publications/path-towards-15-degrees-celsius
In less than one year, the country-led exercise in preparing Intended Nationally Determined Contributions (INDCs) has accomplished what the top-down approach characteristic of the
UNFCCC has not been able to achieve in over 21 years of negotiations, namely to produce a sound agreement to reduce climate change. As such, the UNFCCC should adopt a new process similar to that used in developing the INDCs, in which Parties to the Convention would mobilise their national efforts but on a wider scale and under certain agreed binding conditions.
The UN’s role in carbon markets past, present, and future / Andrei Marcu, Biores, vol. 9, n° 10, December 2015 http://www.ictsd.org/bridges-news/biores/news/the-un%E2%80%99s-role-in-carbon-markets-past-present-and-future
Carbon markets are gaining traction across the globe. What governance role for the multilateral system in this area?…
Overview of reported national policies and measures on climate change mitigation in Europe in 2015. European Environment Agency, December 2015, 70 p. (Technical report No 21/2015) http://www.eea.europa.eu/publications/overview-of-reported-national-policies/at_download/file
Information reported by Member States under the European Union Monitoring Mechanism Regulation. The report presents a synthesis of the information on climate change mitigation policies and measures (PaMs) reported in 2015 by EU Member States. It aims to provide an overview of the main characteristics of the PaMs implemented, adopted or planned by Member States, such as their objective, type, targeted sectors, entities responsible for their implementation, etc.
Tradable Permits in Cost-Benefit Analysis / P. O. Johansson. Stockholm : Centre for Environmental and Resource Economics, November 2015, 29 p. (CERE WP#2015-11) http://www.cere.se/en/research/publications/694-tradable-permits-in-cost-benefit-analysis.html
There is no consensus with respect to handling of tradable permits in cost-benefit analysis. The leading (organizational/governmental) manuals in North America, Europe, Asia, and Australia handle permits in different ways or ignore them. This paper offers a brief discussion of the properties of cap-and-trade systems, and contrast these to the properties of emission charges. The paper then turns to cost–benefit rules for projects using fossil fuels in a cap-and-trade system. The focus is on small projects but the paper also briefly addresses the case where a project significantly affect prices. As a service to the reader the small project rules are contrasted to the much more familiar and standardized ways of handling emission charges in cost–benefit analysis. Finally, the consequences of market power in cap-and-trade markets are briefly addressed.
