The first ICAT project supported Brazil in assessing implementation of the NDC and alternative mitigation scenarios with additional mitigation actions. It concluded with a proposal for a MRV framework for the Brazilian NDC. The second ICAT project estimated the potential of 3 Brazilian states to contribute to the NDC commitments and MRV indicators. In a third ICAT project, currently under implementation, ICAT is supporting Brazil in estimating the potential expansion of variable renewable energy and biomass sources and assessing the respective sustainable development impacts.
Conduct an impact assessment of current and proposed policies on the future expansion of electricity production from variable renewable energy sources (wind, solar photovoltaic, and biomass) up to 2050, alignment with the NDC targets and contribution to the sustainable development goals.
Deliverables will be made available here as the project progresses.
Support the development of a methodology to calculate the effect of different sets of mitigation actions in terms of avoided GHG emissions. The project also contributed to establishing an MRV framework by defining indicators for tracking the implementation of the Brazilian NDC and developing a draft decree which expands the regulation of the climate change national policy to cover the tracking of the NDCs.
Develop a strategy to commit Brazilian states to helping the country achieve the NDC goals.
