Climate Change 2007: Mitigation of Climate Change

Contribution of Working Group III to the Fourth Assessment Report of the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC)

Climate change 2007: Mitigation aims to answer 5 vital questions relevant to policymaking worldwide:

  • What can we do to reduce or avoid the threats of climate change?
  • What are the costs of these actions and how do they relate to the costs of inaction?
  • How much time is available to realise the drastic reductions needed to stabilise greenhouse gas concentrations in the atmosphere?
  • What are the policy actions that can overcome the barriers to implementation?
  • How can climate mitigation policy be aligned with sustainable development policies?

This latest assessment of the IPCC provides a comprehensive, state-of-the-art and worldwide overview of scientific knowledge related to the mitigation of climate change. It includes a detailed assessment of costs and potentials of mitigation technologies and practices, implementation barriers, and policy options for the sectors: energy supply, transport, buildings, industry, agriculture, forestry and waste management. It links sustainable development policies with climate change practices. This volume will again be the standard reference for all those concerned with climate change, including students and researchers, analysts and decision-makers in governments and the private sector.
