TRANSrisk partner BC3, Basque Centre for Climate Change has developed an interesting paper entitled The potential of behavioral change for climate change mitigation: a case study for the European Union.
The study explores how a change towards climate-friendly behaviour can increase climate change mitigation. More particularly, the study explores a wide range of behavioural options in food, mobility, and housing demand, none of which requires personal up-front investment. In order to capture the options' both direct and indirect implications in terms of Greenhouse Gas Emissions (GHGs), the Global Change Assessment Model (GCAM) is used.
The authors of the paper are Dirk-Jan Van de Ven, Mikel González-Eguino & Iñaki Arto and it is published in Mitigation and Adaptation Strategies for Global Change, a Springer journal.
