NDC & INDC Factsheets

NDC & INDC Factsheets

As of 4th November 2016, the day that the Paris Agreement entered into force, 94 countries have ratified the Agreement. That turns their Intended Nationally Determined Contributions (INDCs) into the Nationally Determined Contributions (NDCs). Most countries went forward with keeping the INDCs as is, Morocco updated its INDC, basically adding a landuse component, and North Korea presented a new NDCs, as they hadn't submitted an INDC before.

In total, there are now 162 NDCs and INDCs covering 191 countries, who are collectively responsible for more than 99% of global greenhouse gas emissions (measured as percentage of GHG emissions in 2010 of all the countries that are Parties to the United Nations Framework Convention of Climate Change).

Together with our colleagues from the Potsdam Institute's portal (www.pik-potsdam.de/primap-live/), our portal is the only one we know of that provides a comprehensive overview of all submitted NDCs and INDCs with quantification where possible. The (I)NDC factsheets are in fact a collaboration with the PRIMAP group at the Potsdam Institute for Climate Impact Research. as some of our other products, like the climate spirals.

Below, you will find factsheets for every individual country that submitted an NDC and/or INDC before 3rd November 2016 - as listed in the INDC and NDC registries. Check our twitter feed @ClimateCollege for update announcements.

Final note: Where a factsheet has a yellow warning sign at the top we are indicating that either we struggled to quantify that NDCs or INDCs, we found strongly mismatching data, or we encountered some other issue. That's it! Enjoy... with caution.
