IPCC Fourth Assessment Report: Climate Change 2007
Climate Change 2007: Working Group II: Impacts, Adaptation and Vulnerability

19.4.2 Mitigation

This subsection reviews the growing literature (see, e.g., Schellnhuber et al., 2006) on mitigation of climate change as a means to avoid key vulnerabilities or dangerous anthropogenic interference (DAI) with the climate system. A more general review of the literature on climate change mitigation is found in the WGIII AR4 Chapter 3 (Fisher et al., 2007) Sections 3.3.5 (on long-term stabilisation scenarios), 3.5.2 and 3.5.3 (on integrated assessment and risk management) and 3.6 (on linkages between short-term and long-term targets).
