Designing the EU’s future climate agenda
The 2015 Paris Agreement is a key step towards strengthening a global response to address the threat of climate change. Though not binding, it sets the priorities and policies that each of the 190 signatory countries should follow. It also highlights urgent actions to be adopted to promote climate-resilience and low-carbon development. The Paris Agreement demands a periodical update of the actions the individual countries undertake or plan to undertake to achieve global objectives. The EU-funded ACTION project will develop a quantitative method to empirically assess national climate policies in terms of severity, decision and economic impact. Hosted by the universities of Harvard and Ca’Foscari, the project aims to assist EU Member States design their future climate agenda.
