Start here for a short tour of the guide and climate compatible development
MAPS is a process guidance methodology towards a national approach to greenhouse gas reduction. This multi-stakeholder approach identifies research based scenarios, which are designed to produce the information and options required by decision-makers to formulate national approaches to greenhouse gas reduction. The scenarios are part of central government mandated assessments.
The stakeholders involved in the bottom-up processes are experts in different disciplines; they agree all inputs and assumptions that form the building blocks of the modeled scenarios.
MAPS provides support in the form of scenario modelling, research, process design, stakeholder management, and in some cases financial resources as well.
