Most countries have already submitted their climate action pledges (the so-called Nationally Determined Contributions) under the Paris Agreement, describing the actions they intend to take to achieve this common mitigation goal. Moreover, the global community faces the challenge of curbing emissions in an equitable and effective manner, and without compromising the achievement of Sustainable Development Goals and the efforts to eradicate poverty and inequality. Decision makers around the world will need to design and evaluate these policies on the basis of the best available scientific information and scientists will need to be prepared to effectively inform these solutions. It is therefore fundamental to better understand the challenges, opportunities, risks and uncertainties associated with low carbon transitions, and also the designing, communicating, implementing and evaluating of specific actions, in order to successfully achieve these transitions while supporting and engaging with stakeholders.
