This project will help enhance the knowledge base for and support the development of a strategy for BC/OC co-control in China.

Climate policies must intensify to accelerate emission reductions in the post-COVID era

Global CO2 emissions declined sharply in 2020, but with a rebound expected in 2021 efforts must be intensified if the world is to reach the targets of the Paris Climate Agreement and keep global warming well below 2°C, a new study shows.

StressTest: Using scenarios to assess climate risk in the financial sector

Increasingly, financial decision-makers are asked to assess, disclose and respond to climate-related risks across a range of potential future scenarios. In the project StressTest, CICERO will produce scenario data and guidelines that will allow help financial actors to respond to regulatory initiatives on scenario use.

CICERO to study the climate impacts of hydrogen emissions

Hydrogen is often considered a green energy carrier that has the potential to replace oil, but little is known about its environmental and climate impacts. Over the next three years, CICERO will therefore study what these impacts are.

COVID-19 pandemic causes unprecedented drop in global CO2 emissions in 2020

Global CO2 emissions are expected to fall about 7% in 2020 due to the restrictions in place to slow the COVID-19 pandemic. The drop is likely to be only temporary, however, as daily emissions have already started edging back to late-2019 levels.

Rapid Response for Energy and Climate Policy Analysis

The world today is moving fast and so are user needs. Research projects can take years to develop and get funded, but many research questions in climate policy are relevant on short time scales. We believe there is an opportunity to fill a research niche answering contemporary policy challenges through synthesis of current knowledge and through fusion of existing data and methods.

Global Carbon Project

The Global Carbon Project was formed in 2001 to help the international science community to establish a common, mutually agreed knowledge base that supports policy debate and action to slow the rate of increase of greenhouse gases in the atmosphere.
