A comparative study of climate change mitigation regime proposals, and the Triptych approach, and a South African energy model

By Jonathan Manley

Abstract

Includes abstract.Includes bibliographical references (p. 89-91).Global climate change is one of the most serious challenges facing the world with the cause being increased levels of greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions. The required solution is a decrease in global GHG emission levels. Under the UNFCCC a number of proposals exist for decreasing CO₂ levels. This thesis first makes use of the FAIR 2.2 policy support tool to determine South Africa’s GHG reduction requirements under the South-North dialogue, Contraction and Convergence and Multi-stage proposals. A Triptych 7.0 regime target was calculated for South Africa using both the FAIR 2.6 model and a MARKAL representation of South Africa, developed at the ERC
