Climate projections for local adaptation in the Hindu-Kush Himalayas

Oort, Bob Eric Helmuth van (Report;2014:01)

This report is an output of the Himalayan Climate Change Adaptation Programme (HICAP). The aim of this report is to present downscaled climate scenarios in a relevant, understandable and illustrative manner for a diverse group of end-users and stakeholders, including other HICAP research components...

Kommunal klima- og energiplanlegging: Et innblikk fra sidelinjene

Stine Aakre, Rose, Lewrence E. (Report;2015:01)

I denne rapporten presenteres hovedfunn fra en gjennomgang av kommunale klima- og energiplaner og fra en landsomfattende spørreundersøkelse om klima- og energiplanlegging i kommunene. I henhold til den statlige planretningslinjen for klima- og energiplanlegging som ble vedtatt i 2009 skal kommunene...

Norsk klimapolitikk: 2030-målene og tilknytningen til EU

Stine Aakre, Anne Therese Gullberg (Policy Note;2015:01)

Dette arbeidsnotatet gir en kort gjennomgang av norsk klimapolitisk debatt anno 2015. Det fokuserer spesielt på betydning av forholdet mellom Norge og EUs klima- og energipolitikk. Regjeringen Solberg la 6. februar 2015 frem Stortingsmelding 13 (2014-2015) Ny utslippsforpliktelse for 2030 – en felle...

From the Kyoto Protocol to the fossil fuel market: A model analysis

Holtsmark, Bjart (Working Paper;1998:09)

Implementation of the Kyoto Protocol will change the energy markets. The resulting price shifts will represent important terms-of-trade changes. The paper explores how the different countries’ relationship to the fossil fuel markets will cause variations in the costs from implementation of Kyoto Pro...

Distribution of emission costs under different regulation schemes in Norway

Holtsmark, Bjart, Godal, Odd (Working Paper;1998:08)

The main aim of this paper is to describe how today's carbon dioxide (CO2) tax scheme affects the various sectors of the Norwegian economy. Furthermore, we want to illuminate some possible distributive consequences that various climate policy designs could involve. The common denominator for the...

Wind energy development and dissemination in China: Prospects and constraints in an institutional context

Gan, Lin (Working Paper;1998:07)

This study is intended to provide a better understanding of the functional roles and dynamics of institutions in determining the effectiveness of national and regional public-sector initiatives to promote the dissemination of wind turbine technologies in China. The structures, roles, and relationshi...

Climate policy, asymmetric information and firm survival

Hagem, Cathrine (Working Paper;1998:10)

The purpose of this paper is to compare the effect of different domestic climate policy instruments under asymmetric information when the regulator wants to secure the survival of a specific firm. It is a well-known result from economic theory that emission taxes lead to a cost-effective distributio...

Nasjonal klimapolitikk i lys av Kyoto-protokollen

Holtsmark, Bjart (Working Paper;1998:12)

Artikkelen drøfter valg og dosering av klimapolitiske tiltak på den nasjonale arena i et land som er bundet av en utslippsforpliktelse i Kyoto-protokollen. Den vanlige antakelsen om at en klimagassavgift skal være lik kvoteprisen internasjonalt modifiseres. Det vises at et riktig utformet avgiftssys...

Climate change: Some elements from the scientific background and the scientific process

Jan S. Fuglestvedt, Knut H. Alfsen, Skodvin, Tora (Working Paper;1998:11)

Concluding remarks: On the nature of the climate problem The problem of climate change is not, despite popular conception, mainly a problem of increased global average temperature. The seriousness of the problem is more related to the potential variability and instability of the global climate and...

An efficient and accurate carbon cycle model for use in simple climate models

Terje K. Berntsen, Knut H. Alfsen (Working Paper;1999:01)

The aim of this publication is to document a simple model of the atmospheric CO2 concentration based on exogenous input of anthropogenic emission of CO2 and taking air-sea exchange and biospheric responses into account. The approach described by Joos et al (1996) is based on the application o...
