Ad hoc group for the modelling and assessment of contributions of climate change (MATCH)

Instructors who use climate change negotiation simulations in class should take a look at the Ad hoc group for the modelling and assessment of contributions of climate change (MATCH) site. The site was constructed by a group of researchers to assess assumptions underlying Brazilian proposals for emissions reductions during the negotiations for the Kyoto Protocol. Among the data sets and analysis available on the site include:

  1. Analysis of individual countries’ contributions to climate change: scientific and policy-related choices;
  2. Tracking of uncertainties in the causal chain from human activities to climate
  3. Contributions of individual countries’ emissions to climate change and their uncertainty
  4. Historical emissions, uncertainties and contributions to climate change
  5. An analysis of whether we can reconcile differences in estimates of carbon fluxes from land-use change and forestry for the 1990s
