Advancing from Mitigation Ambition to Action (A2A) - Phase II
As of: November 2020
Following the Paris Agreement, the challenge for many countries will be to translate their mitigation ambition into effective domestic action. At the country level, the project offers analytical support to governments to accelerate the continued devel-opment and implementation of their NDCs, with a focus on sector level action plans, primarily through the articulation of the social, economic and environmental benefits of mitigation. The project will develop analysis and targeted inputs that will support sector-level planning, engage a range of stakeholders, and increase the feasibility of ambitious sector mitigation path-ways in support of NDC implementation. Beyond country support, the project will provide a platform for international dialogue and knowledge exchange on the state of play of NDC implementation, and on key topics and issues related to increasing NDC ambition and accelerating implementation.
State of implementation/results
- Launch of the interactive “Air Pollution Impact Model (AIRPOLIM)” web tool (ambitiontoaction.net/…). It provides a selection of results and functionality from the more comprehensive Excel-based version of the “AIRPOLIM for Electricity Supply (AIRPOLIM-ES)” that allows users to estimate the health impacts of air pollution from different sources of electricity generation and other fuel combustion.
