The International Workshop on Reducing Carbon Dioxide Emissions from the Developing World: Assessment of Benefits, Costs and Barriers was the second workshop held as part of a project being conducted by the International Energy Studies Group of Lawrence Berkeley Laboratory, in collaboration with experts from leading institutions across the developing world. The goal of the project is to analyze long-range energy consumption in developing countries and its potential contribution to global climate change. The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) is supporting this work, the results of which already have made a key contribution to the technical analysis being used as the basis for discussion by the Energy and Industry Sub-group of the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC). The main purpose of this workshop was two-fold: (1) to discuss the feasibility of implementing the efficiency improvements and fuel switching measures incorporated into the long-term energy scenarios created for 17 developing countries and (2) to examine the costs and benefits of reducing energy-related carbon dioxide emissions generated by developing countries. The workshop had approximately 35 participants from the United States and abroad, including energy experts from Africa, Asia, Latin America and the Middle East, staff members from the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency, Agency for International Development and Department of State, members of the International Energy Studies Group at Lawrence Berkeley Laboratory and selected specialists in particular areas. The summaries in this report were edited by Jayant Sathaye and Nina Goldman of Lawrence Berkeley Laboratory based on the materials provided by the presenters..
