Tyndall Centre events at COP19 include the Global Carbon Budget 2013 annual report, the launch of the online Carbon Atlas and a side-event 'Rising emissions and a Radical Plan for 2 degrees' (Slides Available here) hosted by the Tyndall Centre and CICERO.
Estonia side-event - Saturday 16 November. Aviation and shipping impacts on developing economies. As Market-Based economic Measures (MBS) raise the costs of aviation and maritime transport, they impact economies due to increased prices for passenger travel and exported and imported goods. The main objectives of this study are: (i) Assess the economic impacts of a number of MBMs on selected case study countries and globally; and (ii) Determine the possible, and most effective and efficient tools to address or reduce these impacts, where they are deemed undesirable. The study focuses on a selection of case study countries which, based on their economic structure, were anticipated to be negatively impacted by MBMs for international shipping and aviation. The speakers are Dr Annela Anger-Kraavi, Cambridge University and University of East Anglia; An equitable and effective approach to addressing international transport emissions: Mark Lutes, WWF; Chair: Henry Derwent, Climate Strategies. Saturday 16 November, 3:30pm EU Pavilion

Radical Emissions Reduction Conference, London, 10-11 December
To follow-up on COP outcomes and the recent IPCC report on climate change, we are hosting The Radical Emission Reduction Conference to search for new knowledge on how to reduce emissions by about 8% per year and 60% over the next decade. The Radical Emissions Reduction Conference is at the Royal Society in London, 10-11 December. More here http://www.tyndall.ac.uk/radical-emission-reduction-conference
