The Netherlands’ fair contribution to climate change mitigation

This project assesses the proposed target pathway of the Netherlands’ government in the context of the required global efforts and the country’s historical responsibility and capability, which are both key principles of the international efforts against climate change and the Paris Agreement. The analysis finds that the Netherlands’ proposed target pathway of a 55%/70%/80% reduction below 1990 by 2030/2035/2040 and greenhouse gas neutrality by 2050 cannot be considered fully compatible with the Paris Agreement 1.5°C limit.

Working together to achieve the Paris climate goals and sustainable development

The study analyses the need for stronger integration of climate and development policy in the global South required for the achievement of the PA.
