December 2007 | Matthew Ogonowski, Jake Schmidt, Haibing Ma, Mark Houdashelt, Diana Movius, Ned Helme

This report provides an updated consideration of developing country “unilateral actions.” Once again, we find that full implementation of developing country “unilateral” actions is estimated to significantly reduce GHG emissions. The combined emission reductions in China, Brazil, and Mexico from these unilateral measures are estimated to be greater than the reductions under the Kyoto Protocol (without the US), EU’s reduction commitments in 2020, and reductions estimated in current US legislative proposals in 2015.
