This report presents an overview of the major findings of the jointCICERO-ECN project on the issue of differentiation of greenhouse gas
emission mitigation targets among countries after the so-called first
budget period of the Kyoto Protocol (2008-2012). More particularly,
the report provides
- an analysis of the main principles of fairness relevant to the
issue of differentiating emission mitigation targets among countries
- a brief evaluation of several burden sharing proposals launched
since the mid-1990s
- a new, multi-sector convergence framework in support of future
negotiations to reach agreement on national greenhouse gas emission
- an indication of its cost implications, and
- some concluding remarks and suggestions for further research.
