ACT 2015 Publications
The ACT 2015 consortium is conducting research on the key elements of the 2015 climate agreement that will answer the following questions:
- What types of commitments could countries sign up to?
- How could an ‘Ambition mechanism’ function to close the gap to 2 degrees C?
- How can the agreement support countries so they can both adapt to the existing and future impacts and be able to manage loss and damage?
- What kind of finance provisions should the agreement include and for what?
- How could the agreement provide transparency and accountability through its Measurement, Reporting, and Verification provisions?
- What kind of compliance mechanism should be included?
- What legal form should the agreement include for which provisions?
- What incentives could the agreement include?
- How can equity and fairness be implemented across the agreement?
