2050 is Now: Aligning Climate Action with Long-Term Climate and Development Goals

On-going
01 Jun 2023 to 31 May 2027

Description

This project will provide governments, in-country research institutes, and other relevant stakeholders with tools and analysis to strengthen Long-term strategies on the mitigation of greenhouse gases (LTS) with a strong focus on energy, land-use, and food systems, aligning them with national development goals. Therefore, the project will help align short- and medium-term sectoral, economic, and national development plans with LTS, including supporting a just transition. This includes identifying opportunities to enhance Nationally Determined Contributions (NDCs) based on LTS while achieving development goals. Additionally, the project will build capacity beyond focus countries through convenings, research, and lesson-sharing. It aims to improve governments’ readiness to increase ambition and implement actions in line with the long-term transitions necessary to limit warming and adapt to climate change as envisioned in the Paris Agreement.
