Results and Implications for Pathways and Policies for Low Emissions European Societies
The COP21 outcome represents an important new strategic context for EU climate policy. Analysing the implications of this new context requires an interdisciplinary approach, combining analysis of the evolution of the international climate regime as well as of NDCs and their socio-economic implications.
Such analysis is also urgent, given the timelines imposed by the Paris Agreement for a “facilitative dialogue” in 2018 with a view to creating the conditions for the revision of Nationally Determined Contributions (NDCs) in 2020.
The COP21 RIPPLES consortium has published two policy briefs to contribute to the Talanoa Dialogue.
The first brief makes the case that a sector-based approach is essential to unlock the barriers to reach the objectives of the Paris Agreement and therefore should be adopted for revision of NDCs.
The second policy brief argues that national decarbonisation strategies should put a special emphasis on the benefits of learning
