Signing of Contract between IISD and CCRD for “Low-Carbon Scenario Analysis” Project Thursday, June 18, 2015 Signing of Contract between IISD and CCRD for “Low-Carbon Scenario Analysis” Project CCRD has signed a contract with IISD for a nine-month project drafting greenhouse gas emissions projections for the Government of Pakistan. The project will consist of two phases. In the first phase, a robust greenhouse gas inventory for Pakistan will be compiled, and a base year for future projections chosen. In the second phase, due to begin 1st October 2015, CCRD and IISD will work together to create forecasts for future greenhouse gas emissions given various low-carbon scenarios. The work done by the team will directly inform the INDCs produced by the Government of Pakistan this December at the 21st UN Climate Conference. The signing of this contract marks the first step in what will be a long and fruitful relationship with IISD. As CCRD expands its international partnerships, IISD will be a key player in helping the Centre increase its research capacity and future collaborations.
