Chile is rated Medium. Its pledge refers to data from 2007 which is not publicly available. However, a reduction of 20% below BAU can be rated medium under the currently available BAU emissions estimates.
Chile proposes to undertake Nationally Appropriate Mitigation Actions (NAMAs) to reach 20% below BAU in 2020 (as projected from 2007). To accomplish this Chile will need a relevant level of international support.
Submitted under the Copenhagen Accord and acknowledged under the Cancun Agreements
Date of pledge
23 August 2010
Three data sets of emissions are available from Institutions in Chile: The Initial National Communication to the UNFCCC including projections for 2020, the 2nd National Communication including historic emissions by sector from 1984 to 2006, and data from a research group at Universidad de Chile including projections until 2030 for all sectors except agriculture and waste. For the Universidad de Chile data we assume constant agriculture and waste emissions for all future years based on 2006 data. As it is unclear to which data the pledge under the Copenhagen Accord refers to, we show projections from each the Initial National Communication and the Universidad de Chile..
