The goals of the Paris Agreement require forest-based mitigation. But the global modeling community and countries apply different methods to measure and report land-based greenhouse gases. So, how to reconcile these conceptual differences? A new study on Nature Climate Change explores the reasons for these differences and outlines ways to reconcile them
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.
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.
The methods for evaluating nationally determined contributions’ emission reduction efforts and assesses their economic costs. A focus on how to reduce compliance costs while highlighting the value of technology and social innovations.

Research, seminars and activities to deepen our understanding of a topic of particular relevance in global climate change governance and at the center of the post-2015 development agenda, complementary to the achievement of the Sustainable Development Goals and a resilient world as defined in the Paris Agreement. The launch of the topic with the first webinar on February 8, 2017
Keeping political momentum high was one the main goal of the Marrakech Climate Change Conference, as stressed by its slogan the “COP of action”. Many concrete issues had been left unanswered by the Paris Agreement. With its rapid entry into force, COP22 was asked to start considering how to shift from what was decided in Paris to how the agreement’s ambitious objectives will actually be fulfilled.

CMCC Foundation researcher A. Bombelli was recently elected as member of the ESA CO2 Monitoring Task Force. The group will collect information and data for two years in order to plan a satellite mission for anthropogenic CO2 assessment and monitoring. He was chosen as expert in the field of climate change and carbon cycle and as CMCC coordinator of GEO group. His work will be mainly focused on users’ needs
