SDSN's Deep Decarbonisation project launches in Australia

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.
