Final Report - POEM (Policy options to engage emerging Asian economies in a post-Kyoto regime)

Project ID: 226282
Funded under: FP7-ENVIRONMENT


This is the final publishable summary report of the POEM project which received funding under the European Commission (EC)'s Seventh Framework Programme (FP7). POEM sought to address various aspects of carbon mitigation in China and India and specifically it aimed to analyse how a two-degree climate target could affect economic and energy systems in these countries.

The report starts with an executive summary providing a general overview of the project and goes on referring to its context, objectives and the hypotheses it built on. It also presents the project structure. The main results of the project which are classified in four the work packages (WPs) are described. WP1 provided an overview and background on energy, economy, environment and policies in India and China. WP2 analysed the literature on burden sharing regimes and their possible impact on India and China. In WP3, a modeling framework utilising soft-linking of a number of economy and energy systems models was developed and applied for policy and scenario analysis. In WP4, possibilities and barriers of integrating international climate regimes with national policies were assessed. The report closes with an overview of the results' potential impact.

Attached is also the final report document which only does not include the figures.
