NDC Update Report December 2019 – Long-term, society-wide visions for immediate action Dec 2019 - The NDC Update Report tracks the progress on the implementation of Nationally Determined Contributions (NDCs) to the Paris Agreement. The theme of this report is the role of long-term low greenhouse gas emission development strategies (LTSs) in achieving the Paris Agreement goal.
Assessment of the potentials to increase emissions reduction targets by the major GHGs emitters taking into consideration technological and political feasibility Dec 2019 - This report shows the potential distribution of the emissions reduction efforts between different Parties based on different approaches and presents an in-depth assessment of the circumstances influencing the (over-) achievement of the currently suggested emissions reduction goals.
Fairness- and Cost-Effectiveness-Based Approaches to Effort-Sharing under the Paris Agreement Dec 2019 - This report shows national GHG emissions reductions for 2030 and 2050 that are consistent with the Paris Agreements’ long-term temperature goal, both based on fairness and cost-effectiveness approaches.
Tackling the Challenges of Assessing Collective Progress for an Effective Global Stocktake Nov 2019 - This summary report creates a framework to evaluate if a GST is successful and formulates recommendations for the design of the GST process.
Guiding questions for the Global Stocktake under the Paris Agreement Nov 2019 - The independent Global Stocktake (iGST) seeks to increase the accuracy, transparency, accountability, and relevance of the official Global Stocktake benchmarking process by bringing together independent researchers and advocates. In this paper, build on previous work, we aim to identify knowledge gaps as well as potential areas of focus for a successful GST to take place.
