The Deep Decarbonization Pathways Project: Insights and Emerging Issues (Climate Policy)

Climate policy, 2016.

In this Climate Policy Special Issue, members of the Deep Decarbonization Pathways Project (DDPP) demonstrate the relevance of building national long-term decarbonization pathways in defining climate change mitigation policies as well as socioeconomic development policies.

The global analysis has one particular focus on modelling capacity needed to be able to define pathways. It also unveils several case studies, be they geographical (Japan, South Africa) or taking stock of particular issues in relation to pathways (energy world trade, carbon pricing, etc.).
