Progress of countries to achieve 2030 target (November 2017).

The degree to which the 25 major emitting countries are likely to achieve their NDC targets under current policies was found to vary.

  • Of those considered in this report, Brazil, China, Colombia (new), India, Japan (new), Mexico (new), the Russian Federation, Turkey, and the Ukraine are likely or roughly on track to achieve or even overachieve their self-determined unconditional 2025/2030 targets with currently implemented policies.
  • Countries that require additional measures to achieve their 2025/2030 targets are: Argentina, Australia, Canada, Chile (new), Democratic Republic of the Congo (DRC), Ethiopia, the EU, Indonesia, Kazakhstan, Morocco, Republic of Korea, Saudi Arabia, South Africa, Thailand, the Philippines and the United States.
  • Colombia is now assessed as achieving its INDC, because recent emissions, in particular from forestry, were lower than assumed in the business-as-usual (BAU) projections of Colombia’s INDC.
  • Mexico is now assessed as achieving its NDC with currently implemented measures, mainly because of the historical emission data update and updated and lower baseline projections.
  • Chile is now assessed as requiring additional measures to achieve its 2030 targets, mainly because of the change in the baseline projections used for the assessment.
