What is the MaxiMiseR project?
The EU has pledged to cut greenhouse gas emissions by at least 40% by 2030, and by 80-95% by 2050.
EU Member States must produce ‘Low Carbon Development Strategies’ (LCDS) to show how they will cut their emissions long-term.
However, it is not clear what information must be included in LCDS, nor how these emissions cuts could be financed - for example, through the auctioning revenues from the EU Emission’s Trading System.
Ensuring national long term climate strategies such as LCDS are ambitious and developed in a transparent way - with the participation of civil society and stakeholders - is key to meeting the EU’s emissions reductions goals.
Helping make these climate plans as strong as possible - and seeing how they can be financed through the Emissions Trading System - is the aim of the MaxiMiseR project.
