PRODUCING VISIONS OF 2 - 1.5º C SOCIETIES
The project is using networks of experts in their fields with those working on the countries to develop shared visions of 2-1.5 °C societies that are feasible and domestically acceptable. These visions will combine ad – hoc modelling produced by the project, with those that have already been developed in participating countries. In all cases, the project seeks through its methodology to translate the trajectories and results of the modelling into feasible and appealing end visions, embedded within the political, cultural and environmental context in which the project advances. This will include seeking a) a steady state solution, where net zero can be approached, and prosperity is sustainable, and b) elements to translate this state into an appealing outcome that can serve as a purpose for action, in line with the traditions and circumstances in each of the countries and region.
DEVELOPING PROJECT AND POLICIES PORTFOLIOS
The project teams will develop portfolios of projects and opportunities for individual countries to support their objectives and engage the civil society, trade unions, working people, academia and the private sector. The policies will be discussed by private sector participants with government counterparts, so as to facilitate the development of an enabling environment for them, Likewise, the project portfolio will be advanced with the project private sector counteprarts, to facilitate deployment. Altogether, we expect that this will help ensure that our efforts will translate into concrete and tangible changes, increased learning opportunities and an expanded scope for local capacity, rather than remaining as purely hypothetical visions of 2-1.5 °C futures.
DEVELOPING MULTILATERAL PORTFOLIOS
Project participants will work together to produce portfolios of shared multilateral opportunities for climate action and cooperation that can work in parallel with the visions, transitions and projects and policies mentioned above. The project and policies portfolios will also be shared with teams working in other countries and regions, in order to explore cross-cutting themes and help mutually support emerging multilateral opportunities. These multilateral opportunities are expected to contribute to further develop the project themes.
