Global greenhouse gas emission pathways until 2050

The project „Global greenhouse gas emission pathways until 2050“ assesses the requirements for limiting future global temperature rise to well below 2°C. It then explores to what extent current climate policies, and especially the Nationally Determined Contributions (NDCs) support or endanger the achievement of the non-climate specific UN sustainable development goals (SDGs) and from here specifically looks at the sustainability impacts of two main climate protection measures, i.e. biomass production and electricity generation from renewables.

The report concludes with an assessment of sustainability-oriented strategies using an integrated energy-economy-climate and land-use modelling framework and highlights the potential of comprehensive climate policy approaches that align climate protection with sustainable development goals.
