How can societies transform in order to fit within carbon budgets? This seminar describes Paris Agreement-based carbon budgets as a foundation for discussing the merits and shortcomings of various governance strategies, including potential COP26 outcomes, with a focus on social fairness and effectiveness in meeting climate targets.
While much is known about technological change and economic opportunities, it is far from well understood what citizens consider to be fair transformations and how governance systems can realise such expectations. This project draws on early insights from a new major research project (FAIRTRANS) as well as on experiences from a wide ranging panel.
Facilitators: Jens Ergon and Isabel Baudish
