Within the scope of the Civil Society Dialogue Program (Fifth Phase), Turkey Economic Policy Research Foundation (TEPAV), Southeast Europe Change Network (SEE Change Network) and the Climate Action Network (CAN) Europe have conducted the project “Turkey 2050 Calculator: Climate Policy Dialogue” from April 2019 to June 2020. The report “Decarbonization of Turkey’s economy: long-term strategies and immediate challenges” is the final product of the project
This report reflects on the main considerations identified during the project’s dialogue meetings and research. The report provides a big-picture perspective of the most pressing challenges for Turkey to overcome in achieving a low-carbon 2050 vision. The viability of high-carbon and non-emitting infrastructures is presented as are the socio-technical solutions
based on low-carbon technologies. In addition to this, freshwater, land-use, biodiversity, and air quality dynamics in which electricity generation has a significant footprint are evaluated including the social dynamics of business-as-usual and alternative energy outlooks towards a 2050 vision.
