About Us

Under the Paris Agreement, countries are invited to communicate “mid-century long-term low GHG emissions development strategies,” or “long-term strategies” by 2020. These strategies are central to the goal of limiting global warming to well below 2°C and to pursue efforts to limit the increase to 1.5°C, representing a significant opportunity for countries to lay out their vision for achieving a low-carbon economy by 2050 while also pursuing sustainable development.

World Resources Institute and the United Nations Development Programme, in cooperation with UN Climate Change, are developing a suite of resources to help policymakers integrate long-term climate strategies into national policy making. This project contributes to the 2050 Pathways Platform and is undertaken in collaboration with the NDC Partnership.
