This workshop is part into the project “Developing the EU long-term climate strategy” that aims to provide a “roadmap” for the development and delivery of a long-term decarbonisation strategy for the EU. The project itself will deliver two products: A Technical paper and a Policy paper.
The Technical Paper will describe all potential choices that can be made in the new long-term climate strategy, with an in-depth analysis of the trade-offs implied. This will include the main elements that will need to be considered in reviewing the current 2050 Roadmap, and will also cover the process that should be used in the development and the delivery of the new roadmap.
The Policy Paper will present different bundles of inherently consistent set of choices that may serve as basis to build the new roadmap.
The workshops that are part of the project will discuss key choices to be made in a new decarbonisation strategy document. This event will feed into the project, and it is organized in cooperation with the German Federal Ministry of the Environment, Nature Conservation, Building and Nuclear Safety. Other workshops will be held in Copenhagen and Częstochowa and Rome.
Given the amount of information and issues for discussion we decided that all workshops will cover certain crucial elements and the general structure. However, to ensure that an in-depth discussion is possible, each workshop will focus on a selected number of issues (as identified in the agenda below) which will vary from workshop to workshop.
This project is a joint initiative of Bruegel and ERCST/ICTSD, and is made possible by grants from the Governments of Denmark, France, Germany and Sweden, as well as the European Climate Foundation, Climate-KIC, ENEL, EdF and Shell.
Participation in this workshop is by invitation only.
