Published: 06/07/2015

This report was compiled by Ecofys to support The New Climate Economy (NCE) and the publication of a report on the role of international collaboration in climate action, which provides ten recommendations to catalyse international climate action.

The work presented in this report provides an evaluation of the mitigation impact of eight of the ten recommendations to be proposed in the forthcoming NCE report. The recommendations regard enhanced action in cities, forests and degraded land, clean energy financing, energy efficiency, carbon pricing, climate-smart infrastructure, innovation, business, aviation & maritime, and hydrofluorcarbons.

The New Climate Economy is the flagship project of the Global Commission on the Economy and Climate, an international initiative to analyse and communicate the economic benefits and costs of acting on climate change.
