On March 16, 2021, the PARIS REINFORCE project held its virtual national workshop focusing upon Russia. On the day, more than 100 stakeholders actively participated, providing insights into the public policy context as well as a better understanding of some of the key assumptions modelling groups must make to build relevant mitigation pathways for the country. You can read additional information, the presentations and agenda of the event here.
We are very happy to share our latest video explaining the objectives of the PARIS REINFORCE project and the I2AM PARIS platform!
As illustrated in the video, the core objective of the Horizon 2020 PARIS REINFORCE Project is to develop a framework for supporting the design and evaluation of climate policies in respect to the objectives of the Paris Agreement, using Integrated Assessment Models.
Here, we briefly explain what these models do and introduce I2AM PARIS, an open-access data-exchange platform that was co-designed with stakeholders and developed by the project consortium.
PARIS REINFORCE partner CICERO Center for International Climate Research wants to strengthen and expand its research on mitigation scenarios to include technology change, public policy, the economics of the low-carbon transition, and climate finance. The institute is looking for a researcher to work inter alia on the PARIS REINFORCE project. Read all about the qualifications for the position and how to apply here.
