Overview of NDCs

This page presents an overview of the Nationally Determined Contributions (NDCs) submitted by countries under the Paris Agreement. You can view NDC summaries by clicking a country on the map. A summary text for each country also appears below the map.

Overview of NDCs

Data View Annex 1 Non-Annex 1

Annex-1 and Non-Annex-1 countries are represented on this map separately. The shade of colour is based on the value of a country’s Carbon Credit/Debt. Countries with a carbon debt are shaded in red with a darker shade representing a higher value of debt. Countries with a carbon credit are shaded in blue with a darker shade of blue representing a higher value of credit.

Terms used

For definitions of carbon credit/debt and other terms please refer to the definitions on the homepage

Annex-1 countries

Include industrialized countries that were members of the OECD (Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development) in 1992, and countries categorised as economies in transition (the EIT Parties).

Abbreviations of GreenHouse Gases

CO2- Carbon dioxide, CH4- Methane, N2O- Nitrous Oxide, HFCs- Hydrofluorocarbons, PFCs- Perfluorocarbons, SF6-Sulphur hexafluoride, NF3- Nitrogen trifluoride

Fair share of RCB; 50% prob for 1.5ºC

(GtCO2eq)

This is the fair share for each country of only the Remaining Carbon Budget (RCB) for limiting temperature rise to 1.5 ºC with a 50% probability. Values are given in GtCO2eq.

Fair share of RCB; 50% prob for 2ºC

(GtCO2eq)

This is the fair share of each country of the Remaining Carbon Budget (RCB) for limiting temperature rise to 2.0 ºC with a 50% probability. Values are given in GtCO2eq.

Note for EU countries

The EU and its Member States have also committed to an umbrella target of 55% reduction in GHGs by the year 2030 as compared to 1990. Emissions reduction targets under current EU legislation are divided between three categories:

  • The sectors covered by the EU Emission Trading System (EU ETS)
  • Non-ETS sectors under the Effort Sharing Regulation (ESR)
  • Land-use related emissions and removals addressed by the regulation on emissions and removals from Land Use, Land Use Change and Forestry (LULUCF). Non-ETS sectors concern emissions from sectors not included in the EU Emissions Trading System (EU ETS), such as transport, buildings, agriculture and waste sectors.

Details of NDCs are based on the NDC submission of each country to the UNFCCC. The source file for country NDC appears in the text pop-up box when a country is clicked.
