Linking Sustainability and Equity in Policy Modeling
Studies conducted by CEEP over the years have demonstrated the need for links between sustainability and equity in climate policy and action. CEEP has developed quantitative models to evaluate alternative strategies and has authored a low-carbon emissions scenario that calls for decentralized, small-scale and community driven initiatives. CEEP’s research demonstrates the need for global action towards building menus for social change for Annex I and non-Annex I countries.
