Welcome to 2050 Pathways Platform

The 2050 Pathways Platform is a multi-stakeholder initiative launched at COP 22 by High-Level Climate Champions Laurence Tubiana and Hakima El Haite to support countries seeking to develop long-term, net zero-GHG, climate-resilient and sustainable-development pathways.

Designed as a space for collective problem-solving, the Platform will also build a broader constellation of cities, states, and companies engaged in long-term low-emissions planning of their own and in support of national strategies.

The Platform will support countries seeking to develop long-term, deep decarbonization strategies, including through the sharing of resources, knowledge and experiences.
