Uncertainties in the Brazilian proposal

During the negotiations on the Kyoto Protocol, Brazil proposed allocating the greenhouse gas emission reductions of Annex I Parties according to the relative effect of a country’s historical emissions on global temperature increase. This paper analyses the impact of...

Stakeholder needs for air pollution and health information

Within the European Commission-supported thematic network project AIRNET, a stakeholder survey was performed to identify key questions and issues of concern for end users regarding air pollution and health information.

Scenario development to explore the future of Europe's rural areas

European agriculture has a future, even after abolishing EU agricultural subsidies. This is shown by EURURALIS, a study into the future of the European rural area. LEI, Alterra, Wageningen University and the National Institute for Public Health and the Environment (RIVM)...

Long-term reduction potential of non-CO2 greenhouse gases

A methodology is presented here to assess the potential long-term contribution of non-CO2 greenhouse gases in mitigation scenarios. The analysis shows the future development of the mitigation potential of non-CO2 gases (as a function of changes in technology and...

Long-Term Multi-Gas Scenarios to Stabilise Radiative Forcing

The costs of a climate policy strategy targeting all greenhouse gases are substantially lower than a strategy targeting energy-related CO2 alone. This is one of the conclusions of a recent study by the Stanford University-based Energy Modeling Forum (EMF). MNP provided...

The Map Comparison Kit

Comparing maps is an important issue in environmental research. There are many reasons to compare maps: (i) to detect temporal/spatial changes or hot-spots (ii) to compare different models, methodologies or scenario’s, (iii) to calibrate, validate land use models, (iv) to...
