  2. 2. COP  21     |  a  historical  milestone?   |  all  the  right  goals,  all  aboard,  all  in  the  box   |  a  framework  for  future  action   INDCs     |  what  they  are   |  what’s  in  them   |  where  they  get  us   IMPLEMENTATION  TOOLS   |  indcs,  leds,  namas   |  sectoral  strategies,  roadmaps  &  implementation  plans   |  toolkits  for  strategy  design  and  implementation     OVERVIEW   2/17  
  3. 3. COP  21     |  a  historical  milestone?   |  all  the  right  goals,  all  aboard,  all  in  the  box   |  a  framework  for  future  action     3/17  
  4. 4. HISTORICAL  MILESTONE   31-­‐pages  agreement   •  All  the  right  goals   •  All  aboard   •  All  in  the  box   A  framework  for   action   •  Now  or  never  -­‐   action  is  needed     4/17  
  5. 5. UNFCCC:  EVOLVING   CLIMATE  REGIME   •  Paris  the  latest  step  in  the  UN  Climate  Change   Regime  originating  in  1992  –  Prevent  dangerous   climate  change   •  1997  Kyoto  Protocol—”top-­‐down”  approach,   established  highly  differentiated  responsibilities   •  2009  Copenhagen  Accord  &  2010  Cancun   Agreement—Parallel  “bottom-­‐up”  approach   •  Durban  COP17  and  Warsaw  COP19—Legal   Protocol  and  INDCs     5/17  
  6. 6. ALL  THE  RIGHT  GOALS   6/17   •  Based  on  science   •  Prevent  dangerous  future  limiting  global  temperature  increase   “well  below”  2°C,    with  an  eye  toward  1.5  °C   •  Peaking  as  soon  as  possible   •  Regular  reviews  of  science  informing  process;  e.g.  IPCC  to  deliver   report  by  2018  scenarios  for  how  to  reach  1.5 °C   •  Targeting  economic,  social,  environmental  sustainability   •  Equitable  access  to  sustainable  development,  eradication  of   poverty,     •  Empowerment  of  women,  intergenerational  equity   •  Conservation  of  ecosystems  &  biodiversity    
  7. 7. ALL  ABOARD   7/17   •  Representing  consensus  of  all  196  parties  present  at  the   Conference   •  Common  but  differentiated  responsibilities  and  respective   capabilities   •  Wealthy  nations  to  take  lead   •  Developing/emerging  countries  to  decarbonize  economic   growth   •  Support  for  least  developed  countries   •  Legally  binding  and  non-­‐mandatory  components    
  8. 8. ALL  IN  THE  BOX   8/17   •  Mitigation  –  reduces  emissions  fast  enough  to  achieve   temperature  goal   •  Adaptation  –  strengthens  ability  of  countries  to  deal  with   climate  impacts   •  Loss  and  damage  –  strengthens  ability  to  recover  from  cc  impacts   •  Support  –  includes  financial  &  technical  assistance  to  build   clean,  resilient  futures   •  Transparency  &  accountability  –  MRV  of  climate  action      
  9. 9. INDCs:  intended  nationally  determined                  contributions     |  what  they  are   |  what’s  in  them   |  where  they  get  us   9/17  
  10. 10. INDCS  |  WHAT  THEY  ARE   •  Climate  change  actions  a  national  government  intends  to   undertake  to  deal  with  climate  change   •  Collected  and  submitted  to  the  UNFCCC  prior  to  COP21  in  a   manner  that  “facilitates  the  clarity,  transparency,  and   understanding  of  the  intended  contributions”  (COP20)   •  Allow  tracking  of  collective  progress  towards  2C  goal   •  Future  plans  must    not  be  less  ambitious   •  Next  round  due  9-­‐12  month  prior  to  2020  COP  (contributions  for     timeframe  to  2030)     10/17  
  11. 11. INDCS  |  WHAT  ‘S  IN  THEM   •  Tremendous  variety  allowed  in  INDCs   •  Types  include:  absolute  economy-­‐wide  emissions  target,   deviation  from  a  BAU  scenario,  intensity  target,  or  a  set  of   general  policies  and  actions.   VARIED  GOAL  METRICS   •  Chile:  Unconditional  INDC  target  of  30%  reduction  of  GHG   emissions-­‐intensity  per  unit  GDP  below  2007  levels  by  2030.     •  Bhutan:  Aims  to  maintain  GHG  emissions  below  its  total   carbon  sink  from  land  use,  land  use  change,  and  forestry     •  Turkey:  Economy-­‐wide  target  to  reduce  emissions  by  21%   below  BAU  in  2030   11/17  
  12. 12. INDCS  |  WHERE  THEY  GET  US   •  Submitted  pledges  account  for  94%  of  global  emissions   •  If  all  158  pledging  states  meet  their  target:  2.7C   temperature  increase  by  2100  (Climate  Action  Tracker)   •  0.9C  lower  than  what  was  projected  from  policies  pre-­‐ INDCs   •  More  ambitious  action  needed   •  Gap  from  target  can  be  reduced  by  increased  effort  from   countries  with  “conditional  targets”   •  Co-­‐benefits  can  offset  costs  of  stronger  action   12/17  
  13. 13. Implementation  Tools   |  indcs,  leds,  namas   |  sectoral  strategies,  roadmaps   |  toolkits     13/17
