Climate planning for 2050 has become a core strand of debate in the European Union. Focus has shifted to a potential revision of the EU’s long-term climate objectives within the context of a new 2050 strategy, which is to be submitted to the United Nations under the Paris Agreement by 2020.
The Paris Agreement and, recently the European Union (EU) through its new legislation “Regulation for the Governance of the Energy Union”, stipulate upon its parties and members to the EU to develop long-term climate strategies.
Long-Term Climate Strategies Matrix is a living document that aims to capture existing information on the ongoing processes of long-term climate strategy developments across the EU Member States.
Meeting the long-term goals of the Paris Agreement requires profound changes to current patterns of socioeconomic development including consumption, employment, and infrastructure affecting all parts of society including stakeholders.
