Deep mitigation pathways 1

Toshihiko MASUI

The Paris Agreement requires deep reductions of all major GHGs. In this session, work was presented various teams that focused on long-term deep mitigation strategies. A first key theme in the presentations was the use of Carbon Dioxide Removal (CDR). Four presentation discussed how different assumptions regarding CDR (e.g. discount rate, overall goal, capture rates, the number of CDR options, and the relationships with other measures) could significantly influence its use and thus also the timing of mitigation strategies. This led to a wider range of CDR use than often presented earlier in key IAM studies. A subsequent presentation also discussed how CDR could potentially even be reduced further by deep changes in consumption patterns. In other presentations, the focus was more on the implications of deep mitigation for specific sectors or technologies – such as electrification and industry. Finally, by focusing on the power sector – some presentation also focused on the impacts of deep mitigation on other issues such as air pollution.

National mid-century mitigation strategies 1


Three Parallel Sessions were scheduled for the topic on “National mid-century mitigations strategies”. In the first Parallel Session presentations varied from a discussion on the implications of effort-sharing approaches for nation carbon budgets, to climate mitigation pathways in India and Japan.
Presentations in Parallel Session 2 focused mainly on Brazil and China, covering discussions on research on financial needs for implementing NDCs and mid-century strategies, to non-CO2 GHG mitigation potentials, to emissions trajectories in a well-bellow 2°C world, and to future bioelectricity production potentials given land-use restrictions.
In Parallel Session 3 presentations covered sustainable and economic energy transition policies in South Korea, embodied emissions in French trade, and a multi-scale analytical approach for understanding the implication of state, local, and business efforts to reduce emissions using the US as a case study. Finally, during the final hour, a discussion was held by four invited panelists, Jim Skea, Leon Clark, Roberto Schaeffer and Sha Fu, on the possible contribution of higher granularity, recent national mitigation studies in developing countries using national IAMs for the upcoming IPCC AR6.

Attaining multiple SDGs 1

Several IAM-groups have started to focus on the question how different sustainable development goals can be obtained. In the session, some key examples of this at the global and regional level were presented. Many of the current exercises are still related to the core of IAM modelling, i.e. the representation of production and consumption of energy, food and water and how to find a way to align these with goals related to climate, preventing biodiversity loss and providing full access to these resources. The first presentation, however, started from a much broader question, i.e. determinants of subjective well-being. In the various presentations, interesting emerging themes could be found including, for instance, the importance of consumption as a way to find synergy across different SDGs. The regional focus areas included Africa, Asia and China – with some of the presentations providing interesting findings with respect to regional priorities.
