This presentation introduces the "Climate pOlicy assessment and Mitigation Modeling to Integrate national and global Transition pathways" (COMMIT) project. The project aims to: 1) improved modelling of national low-carbon emission pathway; and 2) improved analysis of country contributions to the global ambition of the Paris Agreement. This project contributes to the assessment of national commitments to climate negotiations (NDCs under the Paris Agreement), and provides inputs to the Talanoa Dialogue and IPCC processes. It is based on a research grant from European Commission DG Climate Action, implemented via a consortium led by the Netherlands Environmental Assessment Agency (PBL), and members include organisations from 11 countries. The project has several interactions with the CD-Links project (events, information exchanges). IGES, in collaboration with NIES, contributes to this project with Japan's and global assessments of emission pathways and mitigation targets, based on AIM models.
