Marginal Abatement Cost Curve Development for Buildings of the Commercial Sector in Colombia

USAID, Abt Associates


September 1, 2013
This report is the result of an investigation that was conducted by the School of Engineering of the Universidad de los Andes (UDLA) in Colombia. It was conducted under the Analysis and Investment for Low-Emission Growth (AILEG) project, funded by USAID and led by Abt Associates.

The research adopted the approach used by the Ministry of Environment and Sustainable Development and UDLA in the Colombian Strategy for Low-Carbon Development (known as ECDBC, for its Spanish acronym). Since 2011, one of the main objectives of the ECDBC has been to develop marginal abatement cost curves (MACCs) to identify cost-effective carbon mitigation options in agriculture, waste management, transport, and construction.
