Ratcheting up Brazil´s Nationally Determined Contribution: a consistent roadmap towards the global temperature goal 2 – 1.5 °C
How will Brazil contribute to the Paris Agreement’s mitigation goals? Which roles will play agriculture, forestry, land use, biofuels, electrifications of vehicles, carbon capture and storage? Roberto Schaeffer, researcher at Universidade Federal do Rio de Janeiro, explored Brazil’s role in global efforts to address climate change. Watch the video.
Estimates of climate impacts in Europe reveal a distinct north-south gradient, placing harsher damages on some of the poorer European countries. A similar pattern exists in the United States. James Rising, Grantham Research Institute on Climate Change and the Environment, London School of Economics provides a piece on new research on the social cost of carbon and the importance of higher resolution climate projections
To what extent can a worldwide carbon pricing foster the transition towards a low-carbon economy and help mitigate the effects of global warming? Economist Gael Giraud discussed the macroeconomic impact of carbon pricing and public subsidies while evaluating the extent to which these policies are sustainable.

The carbon footprint of cities may be 60% larger than previously estimated once consumption emissions are included in the equation. A better understanding of these consumption-based emissions will improve the ability of cities to contribute to the reduction of GHG emissions at a global level and support emissions reduction activities beyond their own city boundaries.
How climate change and food insecurity affects migration and vice versa? CMCC researcher Monia Santini will explore this issue taking part in the panel discussion “Agricoltura e cambiamenti climatici: i campi non sono più gli stessi” in the framework of the International Food Journalism Festival. On February 23, 2018, in Turin
Would phasing out fossil fuel subsidies help the growth of renewable energy sources? Would it drastically reduce CO2 emissions in the atmosphere? The answer of a brand new study published in the journal Nature examines fully the issues at stake. CMCC researchers Massimo Tavoni and Johannes Emmerling are among the authors of this research.
