Chile-Danish Government Baseline Workstream
"Since mid-2011, the Danish Energy Agency (DEA), the Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD) and the UNEP Risø Centre (URC) have convened experts from ten developing countries (Brazil, China, Ethiopia, India, Indonesia, Kenya, Mexico, South Africa, Thailand and Vietnam), to share practices on setting national greenhouse gas emissions baseline scenarios.
The aim of the workstream is to share experiences, challenges and gaps, including those that may be common between countries. Further, the goal is to identify key assumptions and methodologies used in the ten developing countries in setting their national baselines and emissions projections, for certain sectors or the whole economy.
One output of this workstream is a joint publication presenting and analyzing practices by those ten countries published in April 2013. In Part 1 of the publication, the editors (DEA, OECD and URC) synthesize current practices in the ten countries and suggest elements for good practice in preparing baseline scenarios. Part 2 of the report contains country-specific descriptions of the approaches followed in each country, written by experts in the participating countries."1
