The global response to the Paris Agreement is insufficient to meet the long-term temperature goals. The current gaps refer not solely to NDC targets and underlying emission projections, but notably to inadequate international enabling conditions that would permit governments and non-state actors to effectively increase ambition.
The COP21 RIPPLES Policy Dialogue will bring together diverse perspectives (researchers, EU and government representatives, high level decision makers and influencers, and other interested stakeholders) to engage in an open dialogue on the key elements to strengthen so as to keep the Paris goals within reach, based on a shared diagnosis of the adequacy of the global response to date.
The Dialogue will focus on technology, finance, industrial transformations and the political economy, as have been identified by COP21 RIPPLES research as key leverage points for triggering transformation. Particularly focus will be given to the EU contribution to this global response – both as an international actor and as a means to lever domestic progression.
This workshop is open only to Bruegel's members and select experts.
