Abstract

The Climate Equity Reference Project (CERP) framework allocates responsibility for greenhouse gas mitigation and adaptation based on individual responsibility for historical emissions and capacity to act.

The Climate Equity Reference Calculator (CERc) is a web-based tool for exploring how specific quantitative expressions of the CERP framework affect allocations. This paper documents the calculations that the calculator implements.

Keywords: UNFCCC, climate, inequality, GHG emissions, equity, effort-sharing, mitigation, lognormal
