The DDP initiative currently runs three projects. These projects bring together countries and institutions to develop comprehensive and context-specific pathways for achieving deep reductions in greenhouse gas emissions while reaching development objectives. These pathways serve as actionable roadmaps, meticulously crafted through robust modeling and analysis. By outlining feasible strategies for transitioning energy systems, industries, and more, the DDP facilitates the shift towards low-carbon economies while ensuring economic growth anddevelopment. Moreover, the initiative fosters a valuable exchange of knowledge and experiences among participants, enabling shared learning and the acceleration of global decarbonization efforts

Deep Decarbonization Pathways in Latin America

This project aims at equipping in-country teams in Argentina, Colombia, Costa Rica, Equateur, Mexico and Peru with tools and methodologies for the elaboration of decarbonisation pathways. Based on the expanded capacity, the secondary objective is to initiate and facilitate exchange of knowledge between researchers and decision-makers, so that the conclusions of long-term analysis are embraced in short-term policy, including in the revision of NDCs. It is supported by the Inter-American Development Bank (IDB), the Agence Française de Développement (AFD) and the 2050 Pathways Platform.

DDP Transport

Mobility Decarbonization Pathways

The first phase of this project focused on passenger mobility in France, Japan, Mexico and the United Kingdom. The pathways developed by the DDP research teams, as well as the pathway building tool resulting from their work, are already available on this website in beta version. A second phase of the project is underway. It extends the approach to freight transport and to three new countries: China, India and South Africa. This work has been presented in different fora, with other major international initiatives for the sector: Decarbonising Transport initiative led by ITF-OECD, Science Based Targets led by WWF, WRI, CDP and UNGC, Sustainable Urban Mobility led by WBCSD and the Global Macro Roadmap for Transport Decarbonisation led by PPMC. It is supported by the Michelin Corporate Foundation and by IDDRI.
