2050 is now: Aligning climate action with long-term climate and development goals

The DDP is part of the project “2050 is now: Aligning climate action with long-term climate and development goals” as an implementing partner. The project is led by the World Resources Institute. Other implementing partners include:

  • Fundación Bariloche
  • Institute for Sustainable Development and International Relations (IDDRI) – Frankreich
  • Stichting European Climate Foundation
  • Sustainable Development Solutions Network (SDSN) – USA
  • World Resources Institute (WRI) – India
  • World Resources Institute (WRI) Indonesia

This project will provide governments and in-country research institutes and other relevant stakeholders with tools and analysis to strengthen Long-term strategies on the mitigation of greenhouse gases (LTS) with a strong focus on energy and land-use and food systems, in line with national development goals. Therefore the project will help to align short- and medium-term sectoral, economic and national development plans with LTS, including supporting a just transition. This includes to identify opportunities to enhance Nationally Determined Contributions (NDCs), on the basis of LTS, while achieving development goals. The project will also build capacity beyond focus countries through convenings, research, and lesson-sharing. The project will improve governments’ readiness to increase ambition and implement actions in line with the long-term transitions necessary to limit warming and adapt to climate change as envisioned in the Paris Agreement.
