Five years after the Paris Agreement was adopted countries are now set to enhance ambition of their national climate commitments (NDCs). To date, only 15 countries have submitted an enhanced or updated NDC but well over 100 more have indicated they will do so in 2020 or before COP26 next year.

How do the national climate plans submitted thus far stack up? Which ones will likely be submitted next? And what resources and tools are available to access what these national plans contain and if they are rigorous?

Join World Resources Institute and UNFCCC experts for a discussion about the climate action state of play, resources to guide NDC enhancement and a demonstration of Climate Watch’s tools to assist policymakers as they work to ramp up ambition, including Explore NDCs, Compare All Targets, LTS Explorer and more.
