What is Australiaʼs pathway to limit global warming to 1.5°C?

1.5°C national pathway explorer

Explore 1.5°C national pathways for countries and sector-specific decarbonisation benchmarks derived from global IPCC pathways compatible with the Paris Agreement.

The analysis

The explorer provides domestic emissions pathways required to keep to the Paris Agreement’s 1.5°C temperature goal and their key characteristics for 64 countries. The analysis is framed around two timelines: the medium term (by 2030), and the long term (by mid-century). In addition to an economy-wide view, the webtool also includes 1.5°C compatible benchmarks for individual sectors. Sectors analysed here will include industry, forestry (LULUCF), buildings, transport, waste, and power.

What are 1.5°C national pathways?

Selected global and regional Paris consistent pathways from the IPCC Special Report on 1.5°C are scaled down to the national level, based on the interactions across economic sectors, energy consumption and emissions. See the methodology section for more details.

Who is it for?

The explorer shows emissions pathways and science-based sectoral policy benchmarks explicitly compatible with the Paris Agreement 1.5°C limit, to empower national decision makers in setting ambitious emissions reductions targets. It is also aimed at civil society and national interest groups to help inform the debate on driving climate action.

Stay in touch

The work on 1.5°C national pathway explorer is ongoing. Over the next two years we will be updating the webtool with new countries and adding analysis for each country’s transport, industry, buildings, waste, agriculture and forestry sectors.
