As climate change becomes a reality, both developed and developing nations will be faced with the difficult task of reducing carbon emissions. Assessing the effects of carbon emission reduction programs involves nuanced analyses and implicates a number of difficult methodological issues. This chapter addresses some of the complexities of calculating mitigation costs in the context of Brazil’s voluntary greenhouse gas reduction targets, announced in 2009. The Brazilian experience has shown that tackling climate change early can be advantageous for technological innovation, the economy, and the social and environmental balance of the country. Climate change mitigation can involve not only significant costs, but significant benefits, as well.
