Deep Decarbonization Pathway

The Deep Decarbonization Pathways Project (DDPP) is a global collaboration of energy research teams charting practical pathways to deeply reducing greenhouse gas emissions in their own countries. It is predicated on taking seriously what is needed to limit global warming to 2°C or less.

The DDPP framework has been developed and utilized by a consortium led by the Institute for Sustainable Development and International Relations (Iddri) and the Sustainable Development Solutions Network (SDSN). It currently consists of scientific research teams from leading research institutions in 16 of the world’s largest greenhouse gas emitting countries:
