Just 3 Months Until COP26: How Are National Climate Plans Stacking Up?

The UNFCCC has a deadline of July 31 for countries to submit new national climate commitments under the Paris Agreement (known as Nationally Determined Contributions, or NDCs) for the plans to be included in a synthesis report coming out ahead of the COP26 climate negotiations this November. Over 90 countries have submitted their plans already (see WRI’s NDC Tracker), and more plans will likely come in to meet the UNFCCC’s deadline. Additionally, on August 9 IPCC will release a new major climate science report that will offer insights on where the world stands in limiting temperature rise to 1.5°C.

Join World Resources Institute on August 5 for an overview of national climate action three months ahead of the COP26 negotiations. Our experts will analyze the very latest submitted national climate plans, share insights on how new plans compare to those put forward five years ago, and present research on the scale and pace of climate action required keep the Paris Agreement’s 1.5°C goal within reach. We will also showcase updated tools on Climate Watch for policymakers and stakeholders to track and compare NDCs at any time.
