The Deep Decarbonization Pathways initiative helps global and national decision-makers take actions towards a deeply decarbonized world with drastically reduced inequalities.

It is an international collaboration of experts, who share common scientific methods to elaborate robust analyses and engage with stakeholders.

The Network

We are a global network of in-country experts who share common scientific methods.
We ground our national and international engagement on the principles of being
country-driven, country-led, country-owned.
