Higher expected greenhouse gas emissions from pledges
Many countries have pledged to reduce their greenhouse gas emissions by 2020. Due to upward revisions of greenhouse gas emission projections in many developing countries higher emission levels from the pledges are expected, and therefore, achieving the 2 degree Celsius climate goal becomes more difficult.
This report analyses the effect of the pledges submitted by Parties in the Cancún Agreements on the 2 degree emission gap, taking into account all the new information available. It pays specific attention to uncertainties and risks.
