EU Pavilion Side Event at COP 27: Bridging the gap to the Paris Agreement objectives

November 15, 2022

ENGAGE Partners and the Institut du DĂ©veloppement Durable et des Relations Internationales feature opportunities for international collaboration to support enhanced national ambition.

This event presents a globally comprehensive multi-model stocktake on the gap between current pledges and the Paris Agreement goals. It then presents several scenarios to ratchet up ambition of the NDCs and long-term goals, as well as the global enablers for eight major economies to implement deep decarbonisation pathways in their countries, according to in-country analyses and experts. These strategies and enablers constitute poignant themes for global climate discussions, including the GST.
