SB50 Bonn Side Event

18 June 2019, 18:30

World Conference Center Bonn, Germany

Long-Term Strategies: How do global goals affect countries and sectors and what opportunities exist?

Bonn Room

This event will prompt a discussion on the outstanding key policy decisions related to long-term strategies and the direct social and economic consequences of meeting the Paris long-term mitigation goals. The presentations and discussions will be based on the findings of the COMMIT and COP21 RIPPLES European-funded projects, which aim to contribute to the understanding of pathways towards well below 2 °C and 1.5 °C, the enabling conditions and socio-economic consequences at sector-, country- and EU-levels.

There will be respondents from think tanks and NGOs to discuss how these scientific inputs can contribute to the ongoing policy debate.
