Meeting the Paris Agreement and Supporting Sustainability - quantifying synergies and trade-offs
The central issue of MeetPASS is to explore whether and to which extent achieving climate goals as foreseen in the Paris Agreement reinforces or potentially impedes reaching other sustainable development goals (SDGs). By conducting an integrated model-based scenario analysis including stakeholders and experts, the economic, environmental but foremost social and equality impacts of a transition to a low-carbon-society will be analysed from a global as well as Austrian perspective.
The project is jointly conducted by SERI (Sustainable Europe Research Institute, Wien) and GWS. SERI is mainly responsible for the scenario development and GWS for the scenario analysis with the Austrian model e3.at and the global model GINFORS.
This project is funded by the Austrian Climate and Energy Fund as part of the „Austrian Climate Research Programme – ACRP 9th Call“.
