Lessons learnt on national long-term decarbonization strategies and underlying scientific assessments in large emerging economies and Latin America

The Phase 2 (2015-2021) of the Deep Decarbonization Pathways (DDP) Initiative is coming to an end, and we invite researchers, practitioners, think tanks and policymakers to join the DDP community to learn about the latest scenario and policy analysis results in Brazil, India, Indonesia and South Africa and our reflections on the evolution of our methods. The workshop is an opportunity to jointly discuss and help create the next steps forward for in-country mitigation capacity and Long Term Strategies development.
