This report presents the main policy lessons emerging from the national Deep Decarbonization Scenarios developed in Brazil, India, Indonesia and South Africa. It includes a description of scenario’s main features, main synergies and trade-offs with country non-climate objectives, priority short-term policies and actions and key international enablers and accelerators of domestic transitions.
DDP (2021). Policy lessons on deep decarbonization in large emerging economies. Deep Decarbonization Pathways (DDP) Initiative-IDDRI. Paris.
This report presents a synthesis of the results of the assessments conducted in Brazil, India, Indonesia and South Africa. For each of the countries chapters, Part I describes the main features of the economy-wide Deep Decarbonization Scenario(s) (DDS), including a description of key national-scale socio-economic aspects and an explicit characterization of the emission objective and trajectory. To realize the necessary changes to get on track to this path, a description of the Current Policy Scenario (CPS) is also presented, including a description of the main policies and actions considered. Scenario results include an in-depth description at sector level for the deep dives selected by each country. Part II of the country chapters focuses on key policy lessons, which can serve as direct inputs into policy conversations at the country level. It includes a description of the main synergies and trade-offs with country non-climate objectives, priority short-term policies and actions, with a focus on where shifts from current paths are critically required, investments patterns and key international enablers and accelerators of domestic transitions.
