Assessing the achieved and missed co-benefits of countries’ Intended Nationally Determined Contributions
This project investigated the general co-benefits that climate action may have and how they could be used to incentivise further ambitious greenhouse gas (GHG) reductions. The project, and subsequent country-specific projects, continued to produce illustrative results for the achieved benefits of countries’ specific INDCs, and the forgone or missed benefits that could have been achieved through 2°C compatible action.
Analyses were completed for the U.S., China, the E.U., Japan, Canada, India, Chile, South Africa, and Switzerland. Analyses continues for other countries.
