Ensuring effective, ambitious, mutually-beneficial EU Climate Partnerships

To assess the consistency and coherency of selected EU Climate Partnerships and identify best practices to inform guidelines and recommendations for ambitious, mutually beneficial partnerships.

Achieving High-Integrity Voluntary Climate Action (ACHIEVE)

This project identifies opportunities to strengthen and scale up voluntary climate action, with the aim of achieving a worldwide net-zero society by 2050.

Financing Coal Phase-out: The Role of Public Development Banks

Develops guiding principles for the early retirement of coal-fired power generation, focusing on the role of public development banks and the efficient maximisation of emission reductions with public funds.

Strategic Horizon Scanning (Klimascan)

The project establishes a horizon scanning system to systematically identify trends and developments across all areas of the economy and society that are relevant in the context of the government’s climate protection policy.

Institutional reforms to elevate climate in EU foreign policy

To inform institutional reforms of the incoming 2024 European Commission and associated bodies in order to contribute to making climate diplomacy the overarching foreign policy priority of the EU.

Delivering the promise of Paris: Roadmap to a safer climate

This project quantifies the contribution of different sectoral actions and compares it to the literature to closing the global greenhouse gas emissions mitigation gap in 2030.

European Climate Neutrality Observatory (ECNO)

The European Climate Neutrality Observatory (ECNO) aims to help ensure the EU achieves climate neutrality by providing scientifically rigorous analysis of economy-wide progress and an independent check on EU climate policy processes.

National 1.5 °C wind and solar benchmarks

Development of a robust methodology to establish Paris-compatible wind and solar benchmarks at the national / regional level, and calculating those benchmarks for a range of countries.

Finance needs for Indonesia’s Just Energy Transition Partnership

Assessing the financial requirements for a socially just power sector transition that delivers for people and the climate

Tracking the progress of subnational and non-state climate action

This project aims to further advance the understanding of the universe of global subnational and non-state climate action, the potential impact of these actors on global greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions and their actual progress.

Net Zero Tracker

The Net Zero Tracker aims to increase transparency and accountability of net zero targets pledged by nations, states and regions, cities and companies.

Horizon 2020 ELEVATE

ELEVATE aims to develop scientific insights to support the preparations of Nationally Determined Contributions and national climate policies focused on achieving net-zero emissions in line with the Paris Agreement.

Ambitious GHG mitigation in the agricultural sector

This project explores the options, solutions and barriers that are faced by ambitious climate action in mitigating GHG emissions for the agricultural sector, which includes detailed analysis of 10 countries.

The Netherlands’ fair contribution to climate change mitigation

This project assesses the proposed target pathway of the Netherlands’ government in the context of the required global efforts and the country’s historical responsibility and capability, which are both key principles of the international efforts against climate change and the Paris Agreement. The analysis finds that the Netherlands’ proposed target pathway of a 55%/70%/80% reduction below 1990 by 2030/2035/2040 and greenhouse gas neutrality by 2050 cannot be considered fully compatible with the Paris Agreement 1.5°C limit.

Systems Change Lab

The systems change lab website and accompanying State of Climate Action report identify what is needed for transformational change across multiple sectors and track global progress toward those changes.
