PARIS REINFORCE at COP26: Towards an emission neutral society - challenges and opportunities
With fellow H2020 research projects, PARIS REINFORCE co-organised an event, as part of the European Union's side events at the COP26 summit, in Glasgow, on Monday, 01 November 2021.
Projects NAVIGATE represented by Potsdam Institute for Climate Impact Research (PIK), PARIS REINFORCE represented by National Technical University of Athens (NTUA), LOCOMOTION represented by European Environmental Bureau (EEB), and VERIFY represented by Laboratoire des Sciences du Climat et de l'Environnement (LSCE) together organised the virtual side event "Towards an emission neutral society: challenges and opportunities".
The projects discussed challenges and opportunities on the way to an emission neutral society. These include the implications of the EU recovery funds on emissions and employment, social and resource implications of a fair renewable energy transition, transformative mitigation measures on the supply and demand side, and the need for independent verification of country emissions accounts.
The Project Coordinator, Assoc. Prof. Haris Doukas (NTUA), represented PARIS REINFORCE.
