Towards 1.5°C compatible NDCs: four case studies
|29 Jun 2020
|09:00 - 16:00
This webinar will lay out the objectives of our project to show how 68 countries across all regions and the development spectrum can update their Nationally Determined Contributions to be in line with the Paris Agreement climate goals. It will use four case studies South Korea, Australia, Nigeria and the EU to show the methodologies the project researchers use to ‘downscale’ global pathways to the national level.
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. This webinar will lay out the objectives of the project as well its the methodologies the project researchers use to ‘downscale’ global pathways to the national level.
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
