Figure SPM-9: Indicative
relationship in the year 2050 between the relative GDP reduction caused by mitigation
activities, the SRES scenarios, and the stabilization level. The reduction
in GDP tends to increase with the stringency of the stabilization level, but the
costs are very sensitive to the choice of the baseline scenario. These projected
mitigation costs do not take into account potential benefits of avoided climate
change (for more information, see the caption for Figure
7-4 of the underlying report).
