Assessment of progress in policy implementation and emissions scenario analysis for major emitting economies

Enhancing analytical capacity on international climate change mitigation and tracking progress of action.

This project, led by PBL Netherlands Environmental Assessment Agency, informs the Directorate General Climate Action (DG CLIMA) of the European Commission on developments in the field of climate policies. Together with PBL and International Institute for Applied Systems Analysis (IIASA), we provide analyses on the progress of major emitting countries towards their mitigation targets and on various enhanced action scenarios to fill the emissions gap between likely emissions pathways and the pathways consistent with the Paris Agreement’s long-term temperature goal.

Several NewClimate staff members have been providing knowledge support to DG CLIMA since 2012.
