Methane emission control costs

I have chosen a cost-effectiveness analysis because it is difficult to estimate the benefits of reduced climate change. It is a sector-level analysis in combination with the detailed bottom-up cost-effectiveness estimation methodology. A baseline without climate policies is needed in such an analysis. The baseline by definition gives the emissions of greenhouse gases in the absence of climate change interventions. The baseline is critical to the assessment of the costs of climate change mitigation because it determines the potential for future greenhouse gas reduction as well as the costs of implementing these reduction policies. The baseline also has a number of important implicit assumptions about future economic policies at the macroeconomic and sectoral levels, including sectoral structure, resource intensity, prices and technology choice. In my analysis, the ' P1 and Q1' scenarios, as described in detail below, are considered the baselines against which the costs will be analysed.
