UNFCCC secretariat released a report which assesses the collective impact of climate action plans known as INDCs submitted by over 140 countries all over the world. The findings point that global emissions into the atmosphere can be dramatically slowed down and aggregate impacts will lead to fall in per capita emissions over the next 15 years.
“ If fully implemented these plans together begin to make a significant dent in the growth of greenhouse gas emissions: as a floor they provide a foundation upon which ever higher ambition can be built. I am confident that these INDCs are not the final word in what countries are ready to do and achieve over time–the journey to a climate safe-future is underway and the Paris agreement to be inked in Paris can confirm, and catalyze that transition,” said Christiana Figueres, Executive Secretary of the UN Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC) added.
