CLIMATE SCIENCE TELLS US THAT URGENT AND DRAMATIC ACTION IS NEEDED TO HAVE ANY CHANCE AT STOPPING IRREVERSIBLE GLOBAL WARMING

Accepting the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) scenarios provide us with a global carbon budget that will be consumed in 10–20 years at current emissions levels, and entail very significant levels of risk. A commitment to keep at least within this limited budget, and to share the effort of doing so equitably and fairly, is at the heart of the international debate around climate change.

As a result of agreeing the Paris Agreement in 2015, governments have put forward voluntary pledges starting in 2015 in the form of ‘Nationally Determined Contributions’ (NDCs).

An updated analysis from a diverse and broad global mix of civil society organisations seeks to ascertain whether these pledges are ambitious enough and tolerably fair.

WHO WE ARE

As social movements, environmental and development NGOs, trade unions, faith and other civil society groups, we have come together to assess the climate commitments that have been put on the table through the UN climate negotiations.

We seek to identify which countries are offering to do their fair share, which need to do more, and present recommendations on how to close the emissions gap.

CARDINAL TAGLE'S MESSAGE ON EQUITY AND FAIRNESS

PRESS RELEASES

THE 2015 CIVIL SOCIETY EQUITY REVIEW OF INDCs AND THE 2016 REVIEW OF PRE-2020 AMBITION

In the period leading up to the 2015 Paris climate summit, we came together to conduct a civil society equity review of the emissions reductions pledges that countries were putting on the table there. Over 150 organizations endorsed our review, and you can download the summary and full report below.

Further, in 2016, we came together to analyze wether the climate commitments that Parties had promised for 2020, in combination with their finance pledges were ambitious enough and tolerably fair. Over 170 organizations endorsed that review, and you can download that report below also.
