Setting Climate Action Objectives for Pursuing the 1.5°C Target

Published: 14/11/2016

This report, released by the Stanley Foundation at the climate conference COP22 in Marrakech, identifies strategies that can help global emissions decline by 2020 in order to reach the 1.5° C goal. A particular focus lies on the decarbonisation of the power sector. Drawn from a roundtable at the Stanley Foundation's 57th annual Strategy for Peace Conference in October 2016, it also outlines the transformative changes needed to enable CO2 emissions to fall to zero by 2050.

The report underscores that climate action can be taken by those at national and local levels, as well as by cities, regions, businesses, and investors. It also examines where the policy landscape is headed over the next few years, with a particular focus on key milestones in 2018.
