Two members of our team out of Sustainability Institute, Dr. Beth Sawin and Andrew Jones, are heading this week to the UNFCCC meeting in Bonn, Germany to use C-ROADS to help the global “pledge tracking” effort.
We’ll be presenting at a UN side event along with our colleagues at Project Catalyst, WRI, Ecofys, Climate Analytics, McKinsey Global Institute, and Grantham Institute. The topic: “Taking Stock — Current Country Commitments, Pledges, Comparability, and Concerns.” Look for us Friday April 9, from 18.00 – 19.30 at the Ministry of Environment (Wind).
The event was the good idea of the folks at the European Climate Foundation — Delia Villagrasa, Jules Kortenhorst and team.
Fascinating times — how to track proposals to the global climate deal and calculate whether we are on track temperature-wise when countries are coming forward with various forms of proposals, as specific as “80% reduction in GHG emissions of 1990 levels by 2050” to as difficult-to-quantify as “promote renewable energy in our country” !
