9th Annual Meeting of the LoCARNet
- Date: 19 March 2021, 14:00 to 18:00 in JST
- Platform: Zoom
Formulating ambitious Nationally Determined Contributions (NDCs) and long-term strategies is a critical pillar for the transition toward decarbonised societies. Although recognising the growing importance of the development of long-term strategies, many countries in Asia have not yet proceeded to formulate their strategies, much less move forward with implementation. Using Asia-Pacific Integrated Assessment Models (AIMs), the AIM project team has been working with and supporting researchers in Asia in conducting quantitative analyses, such as evaluating policy options and developing emissions reduction scenarios, thereby contributing to ambitious Nationally Determined Contributions (NDCs) and long-term strategies.
In this fiscal year, with support from the Ministry of the Environment, Japan, the AIM project team has supported researchers in several countries in developing medium/long-term scenarios, and convening science and policy dialogues involving various stakeholders concerned. Facilitating science-based dialogues and applying research results to actions on-site are new undertakings. This meeting is for showcasing our achievements this fiscal year and considering our plans for the next fiscal year and beyond. In addition, this meeting is a venue for sharing our activities and experiences with others, and accumulating and exchanging scientific knowledge at the regional level.
