Welcome to the 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.

28 countries, 15 cities, 15 regions and states, and 196 companies have joined the platform

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