Enhancing climate policy through co-creation

First PARIS REINFORCE Stakeholder Council Dialogue

Date: November 21, 2019, 8:30 am Topic: Energy & Climate

PARIS REINFORCE is a three-year, Horizon 2020 project funded by the European Commission. The project has the aim of enhancing climate policymaking particularly with reference to a more efficient science-policy interface. In order to do so, PARIS REINFORCE can call upon the modelling capabilities of an ensemble of Integrated Assessment Models (IAMs) as well as other energy systems, sectoral and general equilibrium models.

The project seeks to actively involve stakeholders in multiple aspects of these modelling processes, from the formulation of relevant policy questions to the definition of modelling assumptions. The purpose of this meeting is to offer an introduction to the project (what it hopes to achieve, how it will look to do so) as well as to foster stakeholder-led discussions over the most relevant climate-economy areas for models to investigate.

This meeting was the first of a series of stakeholder events to be held over the next three years.

Carbon border adjustment in the United States: not easy, but not impossible either

President Biden has promised to implement a levy on carbon-intensive imports, albeit without a federal domestic carbon price. The measure faces a number of difficulties, but could feasibly be implemented. The route chosen by the US will have important implications for the EU's own plans.

Opinion

2021 can be a climate breakthrough, but Biden and Europe need to talk

"2021 can be a breakthrough year for climate: the new US administration and the EU have a real opportunity, through a ‘global net zero coalition’, to remove some of the key bottlenecks in the global path to climate neutrality."
