Following the Paris Agreement, the challenge for many countries will be to translate their mitigation ambition into effective domestic action. The Ambition to Action project offers analytical support to governments in partner countries to accelerate the development and implementation of their Nationally Determined Contributions (NDCs). The project focuses on sector level policies and plans, primarily through articulation of the economic, social, and environmental benefits of mitigation policy.

Three Indonesian solar-powered futures

This report takes a closer look at solar photovoltaic (PV) as a clean alternative to coal-powered electricity supply for Indonesia. We establish a sense of direction and scale of the impacts of solar PV deployment on energy security, emissions, employment, air pollution, and SDGs. With analyses such as this one we hope to inform and inspire support for energy and climate policy that truly reflects Indonesia’s ‘highest possible ambition’ towards achieving prosperity and fighting climate change.

NDC Update Report, Nov. 2019

The NDC Update Report tracks the progress on the implementation of Nationally Determined Contributions (NDCs) to the Paris Agreement. The theme of this report is the role of long-term low greenhouse gas emission development strategies (LTSs) in achieving the Paris Agreement goal. This report argues for the importance of developing long-term (sector) strategies to determine the highest possible ambition for the coming NDC update (until 2030) and to signal a clear path for future NDC ambition raising (towards net-zero in 2050). Governments can use the NDC update to signal that indeed the highest possible ambition needs to lead to decarbonisation by 2050 or shortly thereafter.
