This "Climate Action Tracker" is an independent science-based assessment, which tracks the emission commitments and actions of countries. The website provides an up-to-date assessment of individual national pledges to reduce their greenhouse gas emissions.
All governments will have to significantly increase their action on climate change – both before 2020 and after, reducing total global greenhouse gas emissions to zero between 2060 and 2080, to keep warming to 2°C. To achieve this, Governments will need to move even faster on C02 emissions from the… Read more...
Weak government action on climate change will lead to a projected 3.7degC of warming by 2100, around 0.6degC higher than the original promises they made in Copenhagen, the Climate Action Tracker (CAT) said today. The annual assessment by the CAT, a project of research organisations: Climate Analytics, Ecofys and the… Read more...

Current pledges far from implementing agreed goal
The figure below illustrates the current status of negotiations with emission pathways representing the 'best-estimate' of the effects of implementing the current reduction proposals and accounting provisions by both developed and developing countries. Depicted are pathways reflecting unconditional targets and reflecting current maximum ambition along with national plans. These target pathways can be compared to a 'reference' pathway of emissions growth in the absences of the targets and pledges, showing that the reductions are significant. However, comparison to emission pathways that are consistent with 1.5 and 2°C warming limits, it is clear that currently proposed reductions are not enough and are not consistent with the Cancun agreement.
