This study provides empirical evidence of the impact of Intellectual Property Rights (IPRs) on low-carbon technology transfer in OECD and non-OECD countries. read more »


Hydrological Response and Complex Impact Pathways of the 2015/2016 El Niño in Eastern and Southern Africa

Hydrological Response and Complex Impact Pathways of the 2015/2016 El Niño in Eastern and Southern Africa

a research article by Christian Siderius, Kate Elizabeth Gannon, M Ndiyoi, A Opere, N Batisani, D Olago, Joanna Pardoe, Declan Conway  5 January, 2018

The 2015/2016 El Niño was one of the three most severe on record. El Niño is commonly linked to droughts in southern Africa and extreme rainfall in eastern Africa but … read more »


Benchmarks for emissions trading – general principles for emissions scope

Benchmarks for emissions trading – general principles for emissions scope

a working paper by Misato Sato, Karsten Neuhoff, Vera Zipperer  20 December, 2017

Benchmarks within emissions trading schemes are used to determine the level of free allocation of permits to sectors at the risk of carbon leakage. This paper analyses how the design of such benchmarks can impact on firms’ production decisions and create efficient incentives for production and technology choices. read more »


Exploring the spatial and temporal determinants of gas central heating adoption

Exploring the spatial and temporal determinants of gas central heating adoption

a working paper by Daire McCoy, John Curtis  18 December, 2017

This research examines adoption of gas as a heating fuel in Ireland. The researchers provide an analysis that simulates gas network expansions yet to be undertaken and the potential impact of these on uptake of gas and the associated changes in CO2 emissions. read more »


Hydropower plans in eastern and southern Africa increase risk of concurrent climate-related electricity supply disruption

Hydropower plans in eastern and southern Africa increase risk of concurrent climate-related electricity supply disruption

a research article by Declan Conway, Carole Dalin  8 December, 2017

This paper explores how hydropower dams planned for eastern and southern Africa could put electricity supply at risk for vast regions because they rely on the same rainfall patterns for electricity generation. read more »


Climate change and the water–energy–food nexus: insights from policy and practice in Tanzania

Climate change and the water–energy–food nexus: insights from policy and practice in Tanzania

a research article by Joanna Pardoe, Declan Conway, Emilinah Namaganda, Katharine Vincent, Andrew J. Dougill, Japhet J. Kashaigili  6 December, 2017

Using document analysis and key informant interviews, this article examines how climate change is addressed in policy, how it is being mainstreamed into water, energy and agriculture sector policies and the extent to which cross-sectoral linkages enable coordinated action. These questions are addressed through a case study of Tanzania, highlighting broader lessons for other developing countries, particularly those in SSA facing similar challenges. read more »


Designing the next generation of climate adaptation research for development

Designing the next generation of climate adaptation research for development

a research article by Lindsey Jones, Blane Harvey, Logan Cochrane, Declan Conway, Bernard Cantin, Rosalind J. Cornforth, Ken De Souza, Amy Kirbyshire  23 November, 2017

This paper presents an agenda for the next generation of climate adaptation research for development. The agenda is based on insights from a dialogue session held at the 2016 Adaptation Futures conference as well as drawing on the collective experience of the authors. read more »


Income inequality and carbon consumption: evidence from environmental Engel curves

Income inequality and carbon consumption: evidence from environmental Engel curves

a working paper by Lutz Sager  17 November, 2017

This paper analyses the relationship between the distribution of income and the carbon dioxide content of household consumption in the US, describing a potential ‘equity-pollution dilemma’ and proposing a method to quantify it. read more »


How do African SMEs respond to climate risks? Evidence from Kenya and Senegal

How do African SMEs respond to climate risks? Evidence from Kenya and Senegal

a working paper by Florence Crick, Shaikh Eskander, Sam Fankhauser, Mamadou Diop  9 November, 2017

This paper investigates the extent to which, and how, small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) in poor countries are adapting to climate risks, finding that the ability of firms to respond depends on factors that can be shaped through policy intervention. read more »


Cumulative carbon emissions and economic policy: in search of general principles

Cumulative carbon emissions and economic policy: in search of general principles

a working paper by Simon Dietz, Frank Venmans  8 November, 2017

The authors of this paper have built a model of economically-efficient carbon dioxide emissions, which provides solutions for economically optimal peak warming of the planet, optimal emissions along the transition to peak warming, and optimal carbon prices, including under a temperature constraint consistent with the Paris Agreement. read more »
