Mitigation: Co-benefits and interlinkages to adaptation

3 Feb 2016
Description

Climate mitigation is a popular strategy to address climate change by reducing greenhouse gas emissions. Various options are available for both mitigation policy and technology measures, providing enough economic potential to offset the projected emissions growth.  In the buildings sector, efficient lighting and daylighting and more efficient electrical appliances and heating and cooling devices (=mitigation technology) can be ensured through appliance standards and labelling, as well as through building codes and certification/policies. It is crucial for policymakers to be aware of possible side effects, such as co-benefits and interlinkages to adaptation, to pursue a cost-effective implementation pathway.
