The MAPS Programme, which ran from 2010 to 2015, sought to build national scenarios to inform action towards a lower emissions future in four Latin American countries: Brazil, Chile, Colombia and Peru. The aim was to help combat climate change while fostering development, through contributing to an emerging body of knowledge with a long-term impact on policy making, planning and the institutionalisation of climate mitigation strategies.
This report reviews seven recent energy and climate studies to critically evaluate estimates of future Indian CO2 emissions, energy use and economic impacts.

This paper reflects on who the climate mitigation community of practice are and how they do what they do, particularly when it comes to working in developing countries. It investigates the concept of development itself, exploring if considering 'development' as a stand-alone issue raises questions different to those climate mitigation practitioners usually focus on. It concludes by summarising some of the observations and questions that arise.
