Although such changes can affect energy use and greenhouse gas emissions, emissions scenario analyses have either left them out or treated them in a fragmentary or overly simplified manner. We carry out a comprehensive assessment of the implications of demographic change for global emissions of carbon dioxide. Using an energy-economic growth model that accounts for a range of demographic dynamics, we show that slowing population growth could provide 16-29% of the emissions reductions suggested to be necessary by 2050 to avoid dangerous climate change. We also find that aging and urbanization can substantially influence emissions in particular world regions.</dcterms:abstract> <bibo:uri rdf:resource=""/> <dc:creator>Fuchs, Regina</dc:creator> <dspace:isPartOfCollection rdf:resource=""/> <dc:creator>Zigova, Katarina</dc:creator> <dcterms:available rdf:datatype="">2019-12-10T10:54:03Z</dcterms:available> <dc:language>eng</dc:language> <foaf:homepage rdf:resource="http://localhost:8080/jspui"/> <void:sparqlEndpoint rdf:resource="http://localhost/fuseki/dspace/sparql"/> </rdf:Description> </rdf:RDF>
