ENT/CIP/08/C/N02S00/1 Global Sectoral Approaches: Sectoral approaches as part of a post-2012 framework CLIMATE CHANGE Closed!


Sectoral approaches offer a promising way forward to address energy and climate change challenges without compromising economic growth.

The objective of the call is to gain experience with and knowledge of developing sectoral approaches from carrying out projects in key emerging countries as well as trans-national projects. This will provide proof of concept of how sectoral approaches could work; how sectoral approaches would fit into a post-2012 international framework on climate change; what actions would be necessary for sectoral approaches to become a tool in the mitigation of greenhouse gas emissions and necessary links to the global carbon market.


  • Explore the application of sectoral GHG mitigation in key emerging economies through country projects in at least four sectors: electricity, cement, iron and steel, and  justification is made. Not every country project need cover every sector.
  • Define in which countries outside the EU the pilot projects for the above mentioned sectors would be conducted.
  • Define in which sectors transnational sectoral work will be developed and how.
  • Draw together the different actors for such SA, demonstrate how to ensure their collaboration and coordination between different efforts and how to ensure convergence towards the development of sectoral agreements.
  • The Commission intent to convene an advisory body on development of sectoral approaches. This advisory body will consist of stakeholders such as high-level government officials, industry representatives including representatives from key actors currently developing sectoral approaches and NGOs. This group would give guidance and steer country projects. It should ensure that the analysis and results of the project inform and are supported by key policymakers involved in, international climate negotiations, domestic energy and emissions regulation, and industrial production and development.
