Paris Agreement Implementation
Are you looking to understand what countries' post-2020 climate targets actually mean in terms of emissions? Or what they need to be if we want to limit warming to within 2°C? Do you want to receive our latest stream of facts for the Paris negotiations? If you answered 'yes' to any of these questions, then the below resources are for you.
For every country that announced an INDC to the UNFCCC we have produced a factsheet with an estimate of the country's total greenhouse gas emissions, per-capita emissions, ranking in comparison to all other countries, and more. See here.
What commitments should individual G20 countries put forward for the world to have a chance of staying below 2°C? See our interactive website www.mitigation-contributions.org.
Back in 2015 for the Paris negotiations, we shared a random fact that underpins the negotiations. See the collection here.

The COP20 (20th Conference Of the Parties) of the United Framework Convention on Climate Change was held in Peru and was a critical event on "The Road to Paris 2015" towards a final global agreement on Climate Change. Researchers from The University of Melbourne and the Climate & Energy College were there and told us their vision of what went on in Peru and why the upcoming Paris conference in December 2015 is such an important event for the safety of our planet.
