Brussels Policy Dialogue 

Insights for EU and Member States’ Climate Agenda


This Policy Dialogue will address the following questions:

  • What are the socio-economic consequences of NDCs and deeper mitigation pathways for the EU and its Member States, key emerging economies and globally, particularly with regard to innovation and low emissions technology deployment; energy security; trade, energy-intensive industries, and competitiveness?
  • What incentives and barriers do these socio-economic implications create for the implementation of NDCs and their revision towards achieving Paris compatible trajectories?
  • What lessons can be learned for the EU strategic agenda on climate going forward?

COP21 RIPPLES provides a foundation for this discussion through an assessment of: a) national and global GHG and energy system scenarios, and b) the development of the international climate regime. It also provides the international enabling conditions underpinning the transformations required in the energy system.
