PARIS REINFORCE – Building a low-carbon and climate resilient future: climate action in support of the Paris Agreement


Client: Institute for European Energy and Climate Policy (IEECP) for the European Commission (Belgium)

PARIS REINFORCE is a large-scale innovation project with a 6.5 million Euros funding from the European Commission and involving 18 modelling teams worldwide. The project aims to underpin climate policymaking with authoritative scientific methods and to enhance the science-policy interface in light of the Paris Agreement. The first goal is to develop a novel, policy demand-driven, Integrated Assessment Model (IAM)-oriented assessment framework for effectively supporting the design of climate policies. The second main goal is also to create an open-access data exchange platform, I2AM PARIS, to support the effective implementation of Nationally Determined Contributions (NDC) and the reinforcement of the 2023 Global Stocktake. Responsible for Canada, United States and Mexico case studies using the NATEM optimization model.
