Non-CO2 greenhouse gas emissions data for climate change economic analysis

WithSTEVEN ROSE AND HUEY-LIN LEE

Non-CO2 (carbon dioxide) greenhouse gas emissions (NCGGs) are responsible for almost one-third of historic radiative forcing, and land-related activities contribute approximately two-thirds of global NCGG emissions. Therefore, modelling of NCGG emissions is essential for projecting climate change and evaluating the net environmental effectiveness of alternative climate change mitigation strategies.
