A GUIDE FOR INCORPORATING BUILDINGS ACTIONS IN NDCS

Technical Report: A GUIDE FOR INCORPORATING BUILDINGS ACTIONS IN NDCS

Report / 20-01-2019 / Global / English
Authors: PAN Solutions for GABC, UNEP

The buildings sector contributes nearly 40% to global energy-related annual GHG emissions (IEA/UNEP, 2018). Final energy demand from buildings is predicted to increase 50% by 2050 compared with 2015 levels under business as usual scenarios due to rapid urbanisation and the doubling of the built surface area. Effective decarbonization of the buildings sector is therefore critical to meeting the Paris Agreement Goals and exceeding the current level of ambition in Nationally Determined Contributions (NDCs).
