Data or Tool
This pamphlet offers a description of IGES’s set of Climate Databases. Having been developed in some cases over more than 10 years, the Databases compile unique data about climate change policies and sustainable development projects, and offer in-depth insights through analytics, summary and figures. All Databases are freely accessible online using...
Working Paper
Climate actions by non-Party stakeholders, including companies, have a significant potential to fill the gap in the global emissions reductions trajectory. While accountability of countries as Parties to the Paris Agreement will be ensured under a new ‘transparency framework’ stipulated in Article 13 of the Paris Agreement, accountability of non...

A tool was developed to serve a two-fold purpose: gathering of scenario data from integrated assessment models (IAMs) into a consistent dataset, and straightforward visualization of key data from multiple models. The approach adopted in the development of the tool can be potentially applied to any IAM MIP that follows the IAMC data submission...

Article 5 of the Paris Agreement specifies implementation of REDD+ (reducing emissions from deforestation and forest degradation) through results-based payments. Currently, however, REDD+ resultsbased financing is insufficient for incentivizing full implementation of REDD+ by developing countries. In this article, we examine how a new bilateral...

Households may imperfectly implement energy saving measures. This study identifies two factors resulting in imperfect use of energy-saving technology by households. Households often continue to use old technologies alongside new ones, and the energy-saving technologies have shorter actual lifetimes than their designed lifetimes. These two factors...

Upon the invitation by Solid Waste Management Association of the Philippines (SWAPP) to make a presentation on behalf of CCAC-IGES for our ongoing project in the Philippines, I made a presentation on the topic "Development of National Action plan for reduction of short-lived climate pollutants (SLCP) from Municipal Solid Waste Management (MSWM) in...
Conference Proceeding
Carbon dioxide (CO2), a primary driver of climate change, is responsible for more than half of the total current warming impact of human-caused emissions. Emitted CO2 remains in the atmosphere for hundreds of years, absorbing heat that contributes to a warming effect even after initial CO2 concentrations start falling. Taking this into...

Carbon dioxide (CO2), which is considered as a primary driver of climate change, is responsible for slightly more than half of the total current warming impact from human-caused emissions (EESI, 2013). Emitted CO2 remain in the atmosphere for hundreds of years, creating warming effect even the new CO2 level reduce to zero. Therefore, the strategies...
