The modeling meeting is organized in the context of the Deep Decarbonization Pathways Project (DDPP), a joint initiative of the Sustainable Development Solutions Network (SDSN) and the French Institute for Sustainable Development and International Relations (IDDRI), carried out in partnership with research institutions from 12 countries (Australia, Brazil, China, Europe, India, Indonesia, Japan, Mexico, Russia, South Africa, South Korea, the United States of America). The meeting is co-organized  by the International Energy Agency (IEA). IIASA is one of the modeling groups developing the pathways for the project.

The objectives of the DDPP are to:

  • Prepare transparent and practical national deep decarbonization pathways to 2050 to help countries adopt and implement policies to achieve deep decarbonization.
  • Support positive outcomes of the 2014 World Leaders Climate Summit, convened by the UN Secretary General Ban Ki Moon, and the 2015 Conference of the Parties (COP21) of the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC), under French Presidency.  
  • Build an on-going global network to facilitate learning and promote problem solving in the implementation phase of national of deep decarbonization strategies after 2015.
