Setting Climate Action Objectives for Pursuing the 1.5° C Target

57th Strategy for Peace Conference
Conference Report
November 2016

This report from The Stanley Foundation identifies policy levers and strategies that can help global emissions decline by 2020 in order to reach the 1.5° C target. It also outlines the transformative changes needed to enable CO2 emissions to fall to zero by 2050.

The report states that climate action can be taken by stakeholders at national and local levels, as well as by cities, regions, businesses, and investors.

The report also examines where the policy landscape is headed over the next few years, with a particular focus on key milestones in 2018.

On October 26–28, 2016, experts and policymakers from academia, government, international organizations, and civil society gathered at the Airlie Center outside Washington, DC, to participate in the Stanley Foundation’s 57th annual Strategy for Peace Conference. This year’s conference featured autonomous roundtables where experts focused on policy ideas, challenges, and recommendations in four key global issue areas: climate change, genocide prevention, nuclear security, and global governance.

This report captures the major discussion points and policy recommendations from the roundtable on “Setting Climate Objectives for Pursuing the 1.5° C Target,” chaired by Andrew Higham, chief executive officer of Mission 2020. Find additional information about this roundtable and others at the 57th annual Strategy for Peace Conference web page.
