Pledge Limits Evaluation for Decarbonization: Goals of the EU27 Strategy

Description du projet

Un effort partagé est nécessaire pour atténuer le changement climatique

Il n’existe pas de solution unique pour la décarbonation. Les obstacles et les opportunités doivent donc être évalués dans chaque État membre de l’UE. Le projet PLEDGES, financé par l’UE, fournira aux décideurs politiques de l’UE un outil permettant de transposer les politiques européenne et mondiale d’atténuation du changement climatique au niveau national. Basé sur une approche de partage des efforts, il mettra en place un budget carbone européen et attribuera une allocation d’émissions de carbone à chaque région, à chaque pays, voire à chaque personne de l’UE. Une fois le budget carbone potentiel calculé pour chaque État membre, l’outil PLEDGES simulera les ajustements requis par rapport aux quotas nationaux supposés, puis évaluera l’impact de ces écarts sur les autres États membres.

Objectif

This research aims to develop a new climate policy modelling tool - PLEDGES - which manages, for the first time, carbon budget targets for EU-27 countries. Each EU country has different barriers and opportunities for decarbonization. However, these potentialities are not exploited nor explored by the EU Green Deal or by the long-term mitigation targets established under the United Nations Conference of the Parties Agreements, which pledged to keep the temperature increase below 2°C. Current EU policies mainly focus on emission reduction targets and do not take into account cumulative emissions or the speed at which the transition to lower carbon can be achieved. Considering these factors is critical to the success of policies that can achieve the temperature goal. PLEDGES model will fill this gap, providing EU policy-makers with a tool able to downscale EU and world climate mitigation policy to national levels. It will set a European carbon budget and allocate an allowance of carbon emissions to each EU region, country, or even person according to a set of eligibility criteria based on an effort-sharing approach. Once a potential carbon budget for each member state is calculated, the PLEDGES tool will be able to simulate necessary deviations from the assumed national quotas and to evaluate how those deviations impact on the other member states. PLEDGES will help policy-makers evaluate accurately the shared effort needed to mitigate climate change; it configures as a high interdisciplinary tool, helping in designing mitigation actions under a holistic view that considers topics in scientific, economic and social spheres, including the role of gender.
