COP21 RIPPLES and EUCalc Policy Dialogue – 30 January 2020
Can the European Green Deal drive us towards a Low Emission Society? Unpacking emission and sustainable transformation pathways and its social and economic implications at a European and Member State scale - Insights from the COP21 RIPPLES and EUCalc Horizon 2020 projects.
This event aims at investigating main gaps and opportunities in the context of the European Green Deal to enhance EU policy-making towards a Paris Agreement-compatible world. Based on the COP21 RIPPLES and EUCalc projects outcomes, discussion will focus on how the EU could strengthen its domestic and international efforts for a fair and effective transition towards carbon neutrality, in practice.
The Horizon 2020 projects COP21 RIPPLES and EUCalc have contributed to the analysis of possible pathways for a technological and societal transformation in order to reach a carbon neutral Europe mindful of global dynamics. These projects’ contribution goes beyond pathway development. The focus is on providing granular understanding and means for engagement by diverse European and national policy makers, businesses, NGOs and other actors of society. This is achieved by creating tools fitting this purpose, embracing interdisciplinary approaches, and combining analysis of the evolution of the international climate regime as well as of Nationally Determined Contributions (NDCs) and their socio-economic implications.
