How can Nigeria, South Korea, Australia and the European Union update their NDCs to be in line with the Paris Agreement climate goals? At this webinar, which is part of the IKEA Foundation-supported project “NDC 1.5°C Pathways” we will demonstrate how we go about downscaling global pathways to the national level in these four case studies.

In early 2020, we embarked on a major project on 1.5°C compatible pathways for countries’ Nationally Determined Contributions (NDCs), funded by the IKEA Foundation, with the aim of showing how a selection of 68 countries across all regions and the development spectrum can update their NDCs to be in line with the Paris Agreement climate goals.

We are developing a methodology to downscale global pathways to the national level. For this, and so that the results are relevant for policymakers, it is key to take into account the national context and potential. It is also essential to incorporate views and inputs from stakeholders in the process.

During the webinar, we will introduce the project and methodology and engage with stakeholders on identified country relevant policies and boundaries in the development of the model’s assumptions in the case of Nigeria, South Korea, Australia and the European Union.

The agenda includes:

• Ambitious steps to guarantee a low carbon future: introducing the project & objectives
• Customised global Paris Agreement pathways
• National and sectoral pathways: concept & methodology
• 1.5°C NDC pathways for Nigeria, South Korea, Australia and the European Union
• Questions & discussion
