International climate policy after Paris: Emissions targets for carbon dioxide and other greenhouse gases

The project intends to conduct research on climate policy issues that relate to the outcome at COP-21, with the focus on questions related to policy strategies on how to deal short lived climate forcers. The project will enhance the knowledge regarding the trade-off between reducing emissions of short-lived climate forcers vis-a-vis long-lived greenhouse gases. This knowledge is important in order to better understand the consequences of having one or several agreements to manage climate forcers with different atmospheric lifetimes.
