Analysis of options to move beyond 20% greenhouse gas emission reductions and assessing the risk of carbon leakage

Description:

This paper analyze the possible effects of implementing all high end pledges put forward by countries under the Copenhagen Accord. Among other analysis, the report predict that, (if the Copenhagen Accord would be fully implemented), the world could bridge a major part of the required efforts by 2020 in order to keep average global temperature increase below 2ºC. However, the report also argue that most high end targets are conditional on others taking
similar action, on a legally binding international agreement or on the need for further international financial or technical support making their degree of implementation uncertain.
