You’re invited to DDPP’s COP20 side event: 

“Deep Decarbonization Pathways Project” 

December, 12th 2014 from 10:30am to 12:30pm

European Pavilion


An initiative of the Sustainable Development Solutions Network (SDSN) and the Institute for Sustainable Development and International Relations (IDDRI), the Deep Decarbonization Pathways Project (DDPP) seeks to understand and show how individual countries can transition to a low-carbon economy and how the world can meet the internationally agreed target of limiting the increase in global mean surface temperature to less than 2 degrees Celsius (°C). This transition will require a profound transformation of energy systems by mid-century through steep declines in carbon intensity in all sectors of the economy, what we call “deep decarbonization.”

The DDPP study is based on the elaboration and analysis of deep decarbonization pathways to 2050 in 15 countries representing 70% of CO2 emissions in 2010. These pathways are developed, in each country, by Research Country Teams taking into the specificities of their national context to develop policy-relevant analysis of the challenges, opportunities and enabling conditions associated to the low-carbon transition.
