Webinar: Explore Countries’ National and Long-term Climate Commitments with Climate Watch
11:00 AM - 12:00 PM EDTOnline
A demonstration of these new Climate Watch modules, new greenhouse gas emissions data, an overview of the platform and how its open data and tools is helping governments, researchers and the media gather resources to communicate about and advance climate action.
Join the conversation: #ClimateWatch
Under the Paris Agreement, countries must submit strengthened national climate commitments (known as nationally determined contributions, or NDCs) to limit the global temperature rise to 1.5C and avoid the worst climate impacts. Countries are continuing to submit enhanced NDCs despite the extreme challenges posed by the COVID-19 crisis.
To analyze, compare and track the latest country submissions, Climate Watch launched Explore NDCs, a new module that offers detailed content of commitments and allows users to explore and create visualizations of commitments with over 150 structured indicators.
Climate Watch also launched the Long-term Strategies Explorer, a new module that allows users the ability to track and analyze countries’ mid-century low carbon development strategies (long-term strategies). Under the Paris Agreement, countries are invited to communicate long-term strategies and to date 17 parties, representing 25.5% of global emissions, have submitted a long-term strategy to the United Nations.
Join our webinar for a demonstration of these new modules, new greenhouse gas emissions data, an overview of Climate Watch and how its open data and tools is helping governments, researchers and the media gather resources to communicate about and advance climate action.
Following the demonstration, there will be a Q&A session with experts.
