Researchers from IIASA and partner institutions will present results of a project focused on how individual countries can achieve emissions goals that are consistent with the 1.5° and 2°C goals set in Paris last year

Based on a collaboration of 19 institutes from Europe, Asia and the Americas brought together by the Horizon2020-funded and IIASA-coordinated project CD-LINKS, viable strategies for ratcheting up the NDCs and their implications for the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) are presented in this official side-event at the UN Climate Change Conference (COP22) taking place in Marrakech.

In this side-event, initial project results are presented. These relate to the definition of emissions budgets consistent with the global 1.5° and 2°C goals and the exploration of NDC-harmonized roadmaps for Brazil, India, China and the EU, among others, which have been informed by national decision-makers and strategies.

Further, the implications of the NDCs for the SDGs, such as food security, water and air pollution, are assessed and analysis on how the ratcheting process could foster positive additional feedbacks between these dimensions and the climate transformation is presented.
