The Global Mitigation Potential Atlas allows users to easily identify transformative opportunities for reducing emissions, and what the levers for realising these opportunities are.

The Atlas identifies key potential renewable technologies for investment derived from cost-effective models and geographical analysis, alongside information about fossil fuel use and energy imports, to illustrate potential economic benefits from the energy transition.

It also uniquely quantifies the potential for cross border mitigation action, showing how international cooperation can enhance climate action in specific geographies.

Piloted for Southeast Asia, the Atlas will evolve into an international online database of mitigation data and potential around the world, with its methodologies and data developed, maintained and updated by a consortium of international climate research institutions. The tool is designed to support the formation of Nationally Determined Contributions, net zero targets, as well as aligning individual sectors with the Paris Agreement. It is intended to show linkages between sectors and countries for mitigation potential.
