Enhancing climate policy through co-creation

First PARIS REINFORCE Stakeholder Council Dialogue

Date: November 21, 2019, 8:30 am Topic: Green economy

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.

A European climate fund or a green golden rule: not as different as they seem

Spending and borrowing via a non-redistributive EU climate fund or under a well-designed green golden rule would result in similar project implementation and be treated the same in the EU’s fiscal framework.
