INDGREEN: India’s ambitions and possibilities of becoming a global green leader

In the research project INDGREEN, CICERO will contribute to understanding the relationship between India’s handling of its low-carbon domestic development and its role in international climate negotiations.

GRACE - Technical documentation

The model for Global Responses to Anthropogenic Change in the Environment (GRACE) is a multi-sector, multi-regional, recursively dynamic global computable general equilibrium model (CGE) written in GAMS and based on GTAP database. The initial version of the model was developed at CICERO by Aaheim and Rive (2005) for long-term economic analysis of climate change impacts and greenhouse gas abatement policy. It was designed to allow for additional modules for analysis, including emissions permit trading and climate impacts on economic sectors. Coupled with an atmospheric model, the model can also be used for integrated assessment modelling of the climate and economy. Since then several versions have been developed by updating data and certain modules for various studies. Go back to the general introduction.

Natural gas and oil use push up global CO2¬ emissions in 2019, according to latest data

Global CO2 emissions are projected to rise a low 0.6% in 2019 due to robust growth in natural gas and oil use, and despite a decline in coal consumption. Natural gas has been the dominant driver of global emissions since 2012.

Indian prime minister Modi is re-elected. What now for climate policy and mitigation?

India is the world’s third largest emitter of greenhouse gases and is set to become the world’s most populous country by 2025, thus it is by sheer size one of the most important actors in global climate governance. What will five new years of Modi/BJP government mean for climate policy and measures?

Global CO2 emissions rise again in 2018, according to latest data

Global CO2 emissions are on track to rise more than 2% in 2018 on the back of renewed growth in coal use, and continued growth in oil and gas use, according to data released on 5 December. 

​International Climate Policy

Climate change is a global problem, but so far the world has not managed to unite on a common solution. Since its inception in 1990, CICERO has been closely following the international climate negotiations in order to understand the factors that impede or facilitate a global agreement.
