Description (excerpt):


  • Parties to the Paris Agreement are invited to communicate “long-term low greenhouse gas emission development strategies” (long-term strategies) by 2020.
  • Six countries—Benin, Canada, France, Germany, Mexico, and the United States—have already communicated their initial long-term strategies to the UNFCCC.
  • This working paper surveys the long-term strategies from these six countries. We find that countries highlight similar mitigation priorities but address finance flows and adaptation in different ways.
  • The survey of these strategies also gives rise to key findings and questions for policymakers and the international community to grapple with as more countries embark on the process of developing a long-term strategy.
