About the GMPA

The Global Mitigation Potential Atlas (GMPA) is intended to inspire greater mitigation ambition, stronger implementation efforts, and intensified international collaboration. The GMPA helps identifying optimal mitigation pathways, to collectively achieve the Paris Agreement long-term temperature goal. Through this web-based atlas, it is possible to easily identify where significant and potentially transformative opportunities for reducing emissions are located, and what the key levers for realising these opportunities are. It is designed to facilitate international collaboration and connections across sectors and countries, and catalyse mitigation efforts globally. 

Piloted for Southeast Asia, the Atlas will evolve into an international online database of mitigation data and potential around the world, with its methodologies and data developed, maintained and updated by a consortium of international climate research institutions. The initial pilot version was developed by the following initial consortium partners:



Climate Analytics is an international non-profit climate science and policy institute with headquarters in Berlin, Germany and five regional offices. Motivated by the desire to empower those most vulnerable – SIDS and LDCs, Climate Analytics uses the latest climate science to accelerate the implementation of global, regional, and national priorities that are compatible with the Paris Agreement and sustainable development, while building long-lasting national capacity and facilitating access to climate finance. Climate Analytics has coordinated development of the pilot Atlas and lead on developing the policy analysis components.



·       The Agency for Science, Technology and Research (A*STAR) is dedicated to advancing science and developing innovative technology, aiming to further economic growth and improve lives. ASTAR drives mission-oriented research, playing a key role in nurturing and developing talent and leaders for its Research Institutes, the broader research community, and industry. A*STAR led the modelling and quantitative analytic components of the pilot Atlas.





     Institute for Essential Services Reform (IESR) is a think-tank in the field of energy and environment, IESR encourages transformation into a low carbon energy system by advocating a public policy that rests on data-driven and scientific studies, conducting capacity development assistance, and establishing strategic partnerships with non-governmental actors.  IESR led on the modelling and policy analysis efforts for Indonesia.

     The Institute for Environment and Sustainability (IES) in the Lee Kuan Yew School of Public Policy (LKYSPP) of the National University of Singapore (NUS) is devoted to helping governments and private sectors close the gap between policy commitments and actual outcomes through "fit for purpose" policy analysis. Their aim is to create Southeast Asia’s leading policy think tank with which to integrate research, teaching and outreach aimed at assisting the region’s governments, firms, intergovernmental and non-governmental organisations and realising their sustainability goals. IES contributed to the policy analysis and case studies presented in the pilot Atlas, as well as the analysis for Singapore.

This pilot was made possible with the support of:

  • Funding contributed by the Government of the Republic of Singapore through the National Climate Change Secretariat
  • Website development powered by Conclusion: Conclusion is a dynamic ecosystem of over 25 expert companies that together focus on sustainable business transformations and IT services. By bringing expertise together around customer challenges, Conclusion can offer distinctive services: from strategy and design, to implementation, management, and further development. Conclusion has led the efforts to build the initial MVP of the Atlas through designing, constructing, and hosting the website.
