This "Climate Action Tracker" is an independent science-based assessment, which tracks the emission commitments and actions of countries. The website provides an up-to-date assessment of individual national pledges to reduce their greenhouse gas emissions.
We have created a graphic to illustrate the choices we have after the Doha Gateway agreement. Please feel free to download and share. While the official UNFCCC negotiations made some limited progress, encouraging developments on the margins give hope that faster progress is possible. On the official side, minor steps… Read more...
Doha - 30 November 2012 – Limiting global warming below 2degC – or even to below 1.5DegC remains technically and economically feasible, but only with political ambition backed by rapid action starting now, the Climate Action Tracker said today. In releasing their latest update at the Doha Climate talks,… Read more...

Current pledges far from implementing agreed goal
The figure below illustrates the current status of negotiations with emission pathways representing the 'best-estimate' of the effects of implementing the current reduction proposals and accounting provisions by both developed and developing countries. Depicted are pathways reflecting unconditional targets and reflecting current maximum ambition along with national plans. These target pathways can be compared to a 'reference' pathway of emissions growth in the absences of the targets and pledges, showing that the reductions are significant. However, comparison to emission pathways that are consistent with 1.5 and 2°C warming limits, it is clear that currently proposed reductions are not enough and are not consistent with the Cancun agreement.
