The Deep Decarbonization Pathways Project (DDPP): Investigating transparent national-scale pathways consistent with the 2°C target
The Deep Decarbonization Pathways Project (DDPP) is an effort to demonstrate how countries can contribute to achieving a globally agreed target of limiting global temperature rise to below 2 degrees. This high profile UN-backed initiative is the first global cooperative program to identify practical pathways to a low-carbon economy by 2050. In a recently published interim report, presented at the World Leaders Climate Summit on September 23rd 2014, 15 countries accounting for 75% of greenhouse gas emissions set out pathways to achieving deep decarbonisation. This country level participation is what makes the initiative particularly unique, where decarbonisation is explored at the national scale, using country-specific knowledge and tools.
Led by the UN Sustainable Development Solutions Network (UNSDSN) and the Institute for Sustainable Development and International Relations (IDDRI), the DDPP involves Australia, Brazil, Canada, China, France, Germany, India, Indonesia, Japan, Mexico, Russia, South Africa, South Korea, the United Kingdom and the United States, represented by over 30 research institutes. The interim report is available on the UNSDSN website at http://unsdsn.org/what-we-do/deep-decarbonization-pathways/
About the speakers:
Henri Waisman, the DDPP project manager from IDDRI, and Steve Pye, Senior Research Associate from UCL Energy Institute, will jointly make a seminar on the DDPP initiative. The talk will outline the main objectives of the DDPP, and the key findings of the interim analysis, including for the UK. It will also reflect on the strengths and challenges of such an approach, and what can be achieved under this initiative leading up to next year’s COP 21 in Paris.

About the UCL Energy Institute:
Founded in June 2009, the UCL Energy Institute (UCL-Energy) was established as UCL’s response to the global challenges of mitigating climate change and providing energy security in the 21st century. UCL-Energy, which sits within the Bartlett Faculty of the Built Environment at UCL, brings together different perspectives, understandings and procedures in energy research, transcending the boundaries between academic disciplines. It coordinates multidisciplinary teams from across the University, with the aim of accelerating the transition to a globally sustainable energy system through world-class energy research, education and policy support. www.ucl.ac.uk/energy Follow on Twitter @ucl_energy
