All countries have been asked to present an emissions reduction proposal, which would ultimately be included in a new international climate agreement in December 2015.  29 submissions (including the EU with 28 member states) were received by September 2015, representing over 60% of total global GHG emissions. An implicit submission deadline is 01 October 2015, after which submissions are still allowed but will not be included in the UNFCCC’s synthesis report, which will be made available to Parties in time for the 21st Conference of Parties in Paris, December 2015. According to research from NewClimate Institute, submissions made by this date might represent over 75% of global GHG emissions in total.

Research from NewClimate Institute for UNFCCC and UNDP has tracked the progress of INDC preparations worldwide, and collected insights and lessons learned from the various preparation approaches. An update of the results was published on 01 September 2015 and includes information on the progress that 129 countries have made in the preparation of their INDCs.
