Access to modern energy services is fundamental to development. It is generally agreed that nations need to supply their citizens with a basic level of access to modern energy to improve their quality of life. The Sustainable Energy for all (SE4ALL) goals of the United Nations also stipulates universal access to modern energy by 2030 as one of its targets. However, there is little agreement on how to define “modern energy access”, or analysis of what it will take to achieve it…»

Climate, Economy, Finance- Everything you need to know about the IPCC 5th Assessment Report- Mitigation of Climate Change

On April 15th the third and final volume of the IPCC Fifth Assessment Report on Climate Change was presented. The report is the most comprehensive survey of scientific knowledge about climate change, updated after the 2007 edition. Working Group 3 of the Intergovenmental Panel on Climate Change focuses on actions and policies for mitigating climate change, that is on the possibility of reducing the concentration of greenhouse gases in the atmosphere.

The report makes clear why climate change cannot be dealt with solely from an environmental point of view, given its powerful financial and economic repercussions, on both the global and domestic levels. While the continuous rise in global emissions furthers us from the aim of maintaining temperature increase below 2° C at the end of the century, science is seeking ways to control climate change that also take into account economic efficiency and equity, for example through market instruments that reduce emissions wherever this is a less expensive option.

The video “All you need to know about the IPCC 5th Assessment Report – Mitigation of Climate Change explores the contents of the Report narrated by the Italian authors:

  • Carlo Carraro – ICCG Director, Vice-Chair of the Working Group 3 and Member of the Bureau of the IPCC
  • Alessandro Lanza – CMCC / IPCC WG3 Lead Author
  • Massimo Tavoni – CMCC / FEEM / IPCC WG3 Lead Author

The video was produced jointly by the International Center for Climate Governance (ICCG), the Euro-Mediterranean Centre on Climate Change (CMCC) and the Fondazione Eni Enrico Mattei (FEEM). Created by Jacopo Crimi and Mauro Buonocore, with illustrations by Neva.
