Based on a collaborative project of 19 institutes from Europe, Asia and the Americas (CD-LINKS – Linking Climate and Development Policies – Leveraging International Networks and Knowledge Sharing), this COP23 Side Event presents latest findings on:
- ratcheting up the nationally determined contributions (NDCs) to keep the 1.5 and 2°C goals of the Paris Agreement within reach;
- the related implications for the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).
Mid-century decarbonization pathways for key regions (Brazil, China, EU, India, Japan, and the US) are assessed and compared.
