G20 agrees on key climate goals around global warming limits and coal financing, but lacks firm commitments2021-11-1

G20 Rome Summit: What will be on the agenda? 02:37 (CNN)The Group of 20's leaders' summit ended Sunday with an agreement on climate that commits its member nations to end coal financing by the end of the year and to aim to contain global warming to 1.5 degrees Celsius above pre-industrial levels. But the final communiqué lacked firm pledges and failed to put an end date on the actual use of coal. It did not make any commitments to improve on issues like climate finance, paving the way for difficult negotiations at the COP26 summit in Glasgow, which kicks off in earnest on Monday. In the final statement, the 20 biggest world economies said they "would accelerate our actions" to achieve net-zero emissions by or around mid-century

What’s Changing As Countries Turn INDCs into NDCs?2021-5-27

According to the global climate pact, a country’s INDC is converted to a Nationally Determined Contribution (NDC) when it formally joins the Paris Agreement by submitting an instrument of ratification, acceptance, approval or accession, unless a country decides otherwise. NDCs present countries’ efforts to reach the Paris Agreement’s long-term temperature goal of limiting warming to well below 2°C (3.6°F), with efforts to stay below 1.5°C (2.7° F). Even if current commitments are fully implemented, warming is on track to reach 2.7°C to 3.7°C over the course of the century, setting the world on course for dangerous sea level rise, intensified extreme events and other impacts

Capacity building on greenhouse gas inventory2021-3-20

Based on the Copenhagen Accord, the government of Mongolia has submitted Nationally Appropriate Mitigation Action (NAMA) in January 2010. In October 2015, Mongolia submitted its Intended Nationally Determined Contribution (INDC), which then became the country's Nationally Determined Contribution (NDC). Even though the level of greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions remains significantly low in Mongolia, the carbon intensity is particularly high compared to its neighboring developed countries such as Japan and Korea, and mitigation policy in the energy sector is considered to be especially important. Therefore, continuous preparation and improvement of the GHG inventory is expected to contribute to the promotion of appropriate mitigation actions.
