Climate mitigation – the scientific context

The presentation by Dr. Pachauri would provide an overview of the potential for mitigation of greenhouse gasses highlighting opportunities in specific sectors of the economy. The economic aspects of mitigation and particularly recent developments in renewable energy technologies and their uses will be explored. Within this context the IPCC’s Special Report dealing with carbon capture will be referred to and the co-benefits of mitigation actions also described in detail.
