Country emissions


     · “We are a community of data and analytical experts, dedicated to providing credible climate

        action information from regions, cities, businesses, investors and civil society. Our mission is

        to use this information to show how the world is transitioning to climate neutrality and resilience

        in line with the goals of the Paris Agreement."

     · ”Assessing climate action contributions to the Sustainable Development Goals"

Climate Change Performance Index (CCPI)

     · “an instrument to enable transparency in national and international climate politics. The CCPI

       uses a standardized framework to compare the climate performance of 59 countries and the EU,

       which together account for 92% of global greenhouse gas emissions. The climate protection

       performance is assessed in four categories: GHG Emissions, Renewable Energy, Energy Use and

       Climate Policy.”

     · NDC Partnership

          · "Launched in 2016 at COP22 in Marrakesh, the NDC Partnership was founded on the idea that  

             technical assistance, expertise, and financing for climate action were not being deployed in

             an effective or coordinated way to maximize efforts towards achieving the goals of the Paris

             Agreement and the SDGs, and that greater support was urgently needed. In response, the NDC

             Partnership was established to facilitate collaboration between country governments,  

             international institutions, non-state actors, and other partners to provide timely support for

             accelerated climate action."

         · Economic Advisory Initiative

         · Climate Watch

               · "Climate Watch is an online platform designed to empower policymakers, researchers, media

                  and other stakeholders with the open climate data, visualizations and resources they need to

                  gather insights on national and global progress on climate change. Climate Watch brings together

                  dozens of datasets for the first time to let users analyze and compare the Nationally Determined

                  Contributions (NDCs) under the Paris Agreement, access historical emissions data, discover how

                  countries can leverage their climate goals to achieve their sustainable development objectives

                  and use models to map new pathways to a lower carbon, prosperous future. This free platform

                  enables users to create and share custom data visualizations and comparisons of national climate

                  commitments. It contributes to the goals of the Paris Agreement by using open data to increase

                  transparency and accountability and providing actionable analysis on how countries can enhance

                  their efforts to combat climate change."

         to limit warming to 1.5°C." A collaboration of two organisations, Climate Analytics and New Climate

         Institute, the CAT has been providing this independent analysis to policymakers since 2009."
