ADVISORY: Press Call on Assessing National Climate Plans (INDCs) and Measuring Success of Paris Climate Talks

WASHINGTON (September 28, 2015)– Thursday, October 1 marks the informal deadline for countries to submit their climate plans to the United Nations’ climate talks. India is expected to submit its plan on that date, while Brazil, Indonesia and South Africa submitted theirs in the last week. With proposals on the table from all major economies (track them on WRI's Paris Contribution Map), we will have a good idea of where the world stands in the fight against climate change ahead of the landmark Paris summit this December.

On Wednesday, September 30 at 9:30 AM ET, World Resources Institute will host a press teleconference featuring WRI experts Jennifer Morgan, global director, Climate Program, David Waskow, director, International Climate Initiative Taryn Fransen, program director, Open Climate Network to offer insights on these questions and other major developments at this critical point just two months before the Paris climate summit:

  • How do these country commitments add up to limiting global warming to under 2 degrees C?

  • What can a strong global climate agreement do to build on these efforts into the future?

  • And what are the stickiest issues negotiators will grapple with in the final moments in Paris?
