Three propositions for a 2015 international climate agreement

Draft paper

Published: 18/07/2014

The Agreement on Climate Transformation 2015 (ACT 2015) consortium is a group of leading climate experts from developing and developed countries that have come together to foster the preparations for a global climate agreement at the UN Framework Convention on Climate Change summit in 2015.

The ACT 2015 consortium has developed three propositions with alternative scenarios for a climate change agreement, each illustrating different tradeoffs among policy options. This draft paper illustrates the three propositions and contains a quantitative analysis looking at the related mitigation costs, avoided damage, co-benefits, and environmental and economic consequences.
