INDC Factsheets

Eifell Tower

As of 16th of May 2016, 162 INDC submissions covered 189 countries, who were collectively responsible for more than 99% of global greenhouse gas emissions (measured as percentage of GHG emissions in 2010 of all the countries that are Parties to the United Nations Framework Convention of Climate Change).

Our portal is the only one we know of that provides a comprehensive overview of all submitted INDCs with quantification where possible. In producing this resource for you, we cooperated with the PRIMAP group at the Potsdam Institute for Climate Impact Research, who created a complete composite dataset.

Below, you will find factsheets for every individual country that submitted an INDC before the 14th of May 2016. Check our twitter feed @ClimateCollege for update announcements.

Final note: Where a factsheet has a yellow warning sign at the top we are indicating that either we struggled to quantify that INDC, we found strongly mismatching data, or we encountered some other issue. That's it! Enjoy... with caution.


Updates 14th of May 2016 version vs. 22nd April 2016 version: There were a couple of bugs in the 22nd April which we fixed. Panama provided INDC, but as there was no specified BAU level we could not quantify it.

Updates 22nd April 2016 version vs. 26th November 2015 version: New INDCs from Nepal, Malaysia, Chile, Venezuela etc. quantified. Factsheets for some countries without INDCs also provided, namely Panama, Nicaragua and Uzbekistan. Methodological update by including now full min-max range of conditional and unconditional pledges, where available.

Updates 29th November version vs. 26th November version: New INDCs from Malaysia, Tuvalu, Jamaica etc. quantified.

Updates on 26th November version vs. 16th November version: Inclusion of all countries that submitted until 9AM, 25th November. (Sorry, Niue just came in at 11AM, we include you in the next version). Due to popular request, we included as well factsheets for international bunkers and maritime transport.

Updates in 16th November version vs. previous 30th October version version: We now include, Iran, Saudi Arabia, Pakistan and other new submissions (although some of them are unquantifable). Chinese coal consumption data was updated (see background in this New York Times article)

Previous update within 30th October version: United Arab Emirates were updated and EU28 countries are analysed on a country-by-country basis.
