Climate change 2007 : mitigation of climate change : contribution of Working Group III to the Fourth Assessment Report of the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change by Bert Metz( Book )

41 editions published in 2007 in English and held by 754 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The third volume of the Fourth Assessment Report of the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) provides an in-depth analysis of the costs and benefits of different approaches to mitigating and avoiding climate change.

Climate change 2001 : mitigation : contribution of Working Group III to the third assessment report of the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change by Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change( Book )

13 editions published between 2001 and 2007 in English and held by 542 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Climate Change 2001: Mitigation is the most comprehensive and up-to-date scientific, technical and economic assessment of options to mitigate climate change and their costs. The report: - Makes clear there are strong inter-linkages between climate change policy and policies towards sustainable development. - Assesses information on technological options to reduce greenhouse gas emissions or enhance their sinks. - Analyses technologies and practices available to achieve the targets of the Kyoto Protocol and stabilise atmospheric concentrations of greenhouse gases. - Evaluates barriers impeding implementation of these options and methods available to overcome them. - Summarises the economic literature on costs of climate change mitigation at global, regional and national levels. - Evaluates the other benefits that climate policy can deliver or the climate benefits of other socio-economic policies. - Assesses how this information can be used to support climate policy decision making, acknowledging various decision-making frameworks. This latest IPCC assessment will again form the standard scientific reference for all concerned with climate change and who want to be informed of ways to address this important global problem: including students and researchers in environmental and social sciences, and policymakers and analysts in governmental and non-governmental organisations and the private sector world-wide

Methodological and technological issues in technology transfer by Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change( Book )

12 editions published in 2000 in English and held by 243 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Effective global response to climate change requires the development and transfer of environmentally sound technologies between and within countries, both for adapting to climate change as well as for mitigating the effects of greenhouse gas emissions. This IPCC report provides an overview of how to achieve and enhance this transfer. 185 eminent experts from around the world provide accurate, unbiased, policy-relevant information on technology transfer, such as capacity building, the promotion of an enabling environment, and mechanisms for technology transfer from developed to developing countries.--Publisher's description
Controlling climate change by Bert Metz( Book )

13 editions published between 2009 and 2012 in English and held by 214 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"An unbiased and comprehensive overview, based on the findings of the IPCC (Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change). Using no jargon, it looks at tackling and adapting to man-made climate change, and works through the often confusing potential solutions. Bert Metz is the former co-chair of the IPCC, at the center of international climate change negotiations. His insider expertise provides a cutting edge assessment of issues at the top of the political agenda. He leads the reader succinctly through ambitious mitigation scenarios, in combination with adapting our future societies to different climate conditions and the potential costs of these measures. Illustrations and extensive boxed examples motivate students to engage with this essential global debate, and questions for each chapter are available online for course instructors. Minimal technical language also makes this book valuable to anyone with an interest in action to combat climate change"--Provided by publisher

Development policy as a way to manage climate change risks by Bert Metz( Book )

14 editions published between 2008 and 2015 in English and Undetermined and held by 77 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The integration of development and climate objectives is increasingly recognized as significant in research and policy making. In practice some development aims such as poverty alleviation enhancing energy security and access or improving health also have potential climate benefits. The challenge is to find a broadly applicable range of effective policies and actions that realize development objectives and at the same time result in real climate benefits. This special issue of the Climate Policy journal focuses on new evidence that identifies options for action examining how development strate
