ClimateWorks Australia and the Australian National University are leading Australia’s participation in SDSN’s global Deep Decarbonisation Pathways Project (DDPP).
The project, locally known as How Australia can Thrive in a Low Carbon World, Pathways to Prosperity in 2050, draws on research and analysis from 13 participating country teams, which collectively represents more than 75% of global greenhouse gas emissions. Working within a coordinated framework, each country will explore the potential to achieve deep decarbonisation, while maintaining economic prosperity, with the goal of limiting a global temperature rise of 2° Celsius.
The project was launched by SDSN Director, Professor Jeffrey Sachs, on 21 May 2014. For further details, see the project website.
