  1. 1. Clean development Mechanism (CDM) Policy and Implementation in China

    Author : Lei Zeng; Leif Gustavsson; Mälardalens högskola; []
    Keywords : Climate change; Clean development mechanism; CDM; CO2; Green House Gas; GHG; landfill gas; sustainable development; China; Energi- och miljöteknik;

    Abstract : China is the second largest emitter of greenhouse gases (GHG) in the world. Since 68% of its primary energy is from coal, China’s average energy intensity is 7.5 times higher than the EU and 4.3 times higher than the US (EU, 2003). READ MORE

  2. 2. Hybrid Governance in Practice : Public and Private Actors in the Kyoto Protocol's Clean Development Mechanism

    Author : Emma Lund; Statsvetenskapliga institutionen; []
    Keywords : SAMHÄLLSVETENSKAP; SOCIAL SCIENCES; effectiveness; private actors; multilateral environmental agreements; hybrid governance; global governance; climate regime; UNFCCC; Kyoto Protocol; CDM; Clean Development Mechanism;

    Abstract : It is commonly argued that the private sector needs to become actively involved for society to stand a chance of solving the most pressing global problems. This thesis, consisting of five articles previously published in refereed journals and an introductory essay, studies one case of private actor participation in global environmental governance: the Kyoto Protocol’s Clean Development Mechanism (CDM).

  3. 3. Climate change mitigation through CDM : bioenergy technology and energy efficiency in the steel industry

    Author : Chuan Wang; Luleå tekniska universitet; []

    Abstract : Climate change is one of the most significant challenges to sustainable development facing the international community. Increased attention has been given by industries and governments from both industrialized and developing countries to reduce greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions through the clean development mechanism (CDM), one of the Kyoto Protocol's (KP) flexible mechanisms.

  4. 4. Approaches to scale-up CO2 emissions reduction in the energy supply sector in developing countries

    Author : Wathanyu Amatayakul; Chalmers University of Technology; []
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; sectoral no-lose target; electricity generation; biomass; CO2 abatement; Thailand; CDM; developing countries; biofuel;

    Abstract : This thesis, which consists of five papers, addresses two themes related to the need for a scale-up of greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions reduction in the energy sector in developing countries: (1) approaches to support developing countries in scaling-up emissions reduction, and (2) an approach to scale-up emissions reduction --cultivation of fuel wood to replace fossil fuels in electricity generation.In the first paper, the potential volume of carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions reduction and reduction credits in the electricity sector under a sectoral crediting mechanism based on a sectoral no-lose, non-binding, target in the post-2012 period is assessed for seven high-emitting developing countries by means of different scenarios.

  5. 5. At the crossroads of bioenergy and agriculture in developing countries : Challenges and prospects for fossil fuels replacement and CO2 abatement in the case of Thailand

    Author : Wathanyu Amatayakul; Chalmers University of Technology; []
    Keywords : bioenergy plantations; land-use decision; developing countries; CO2 abatement; ethanol program; Thailand; wood crops; CDM;

    Abstract : Studies estimate that the potential contribution of biomass to the global primary energy supply from cultivation of crops for energy is substantial in the long term, from about 50 to 240 EJ/year in 2050. Most of this biomass is projected to come from cultivation in developing countries. READ MORE
