ITALY–USA 2 stems from a research agreement signed in January 2002 by the US and Italian governments aimed to acknowledge the importance of robust scientific results and of the power of technological innovation to overcome the uncertainty associated with global changes and with climate change in particular. Under the co-ordination of the Euro-Mediterranean Center for Climate Change (CMCC), FEEM studies the impacts of climate change policies on technological change, climate change mitigation and adaptation policies, emissions trading in Europe and in the US, the impact of mitigation policies on the agro-forestry sector and post-Kyoto climate policy regime and architecture.

ITALY–USA 2 stems from a research agreement signed in January 2002 by the US and Italian governments to acknowledge the importance of robust scientific results and of the power of technological innovation to overcome the uncertainty associated with global changes and with climate change in particular. The project consists of 5 scientific work packages dealing with:

  • The impacts of climate change on the variability of the ocean atmospheric system;
  • Monitoring methods of carbon sequestration at regional scale;
  • Impacts of climate change policies on the technological innovation;
  • Studies on aerosol, on the atmosphere chemical composition, on the exchange processes, and on the impacts of climate change on the Mediterranean climate of the Northern Hemisphere (USA and Italy);
  • NOx reduction through reburning by syngas produced from biomass gasification.
  • FEEM contributes to the study of the impacts of climate change policies on technological change, climate change mitigation and adaptation policies, emissions trading in Europe and in the USA, the impact of mitigation policies on the agro-forestry sector and post-Kyoto climate policy regime and architecture.

    The project, co-ordinated by the Euro-Mediterranean Center for Climate Change (CMCC), is based on the work platform created by the results of research activities and the developed networks constituted in the previous project "Italy-USA Co-operation on Science and Technology of Climate Change" (2003-2006), funded by the Italian Ministry of the Environment and Territory.
