To achieve the global goal of zero emissions by 2070, all economies must commit to decarbonisation to limit anthropogenic climate change. In addition to acting internally, the European Union (EU) must support developing countries with mitigation and adaptation. Developing countries – especially the most vulnerable – need a robust deal at the 21st Conference of the Parties (COP21) in Paris, as well as an ambitious action plan to ramp up action afterwards.
This policy brief by the European Think Tanks Group (ETTG) – German Development Institute / Deutsches Institut für Entwicklungspolitik (DIE), ECDPM, FRIDE, IDDRI and ODI – underlines the importance of EU leadership in Paris and how the EU should move forward after COP21.
