Sectoral Approaches to GHG Mitigation: Scenarios for Integration

About this report

This report offers a preliminary analysis of several scenarios for integration of sectoral approaches in international and national climate policy. We consider four broad types of sectoral approaches: a global action, i.e. a unilateral move by industry to foster GHG improvements; a global agreement between industry and Parties to the UNFCCC; a series of national policies targeting a sector, with some intergovernmental co-ordination; and a sectoral crediting mechanism whereby reductions recorded at a sector level may be eligible for emission credits.
