Start of Project 11/2018
End of Project 10/2021

DECADE examines the energy consumption dynamics and climate policy options for countries in Sub-Saharan Africa (SSA) to determine how CO2-intensive development paths can be avoided. Possible trade-offs between climate protection measures and development goals, such as poverty reduction, will be taken into account. Understanding the political economy of climate policy in SSA will be one focus of the project. The results will hence contribute to identifying effective policy measures that facilitate the realization of the Paris Agreement.
