Bonn Climate Change Conference

Bonn Climate Change Conference - June 2015

Interactive map of pre-2020 emission reduction targets and actions

In 2009 and 2010, the climate change negotiations continued to address the urgent need to reduce emissions. In line with their leadership role, industrialized countries committed to implementing quantified economy-wide emissions targets for 2020. Developing countries agreed to craft Nationally Appropriate Mitigation Actions (NAMAs) that are in line with their national development objectives. Through NAMAs, developing countries aim to reduce their emissions below business as usual by 2020.

View the interactive world map showing quantified economy-wide emission reduction targets for all developed countries and Nationally Appropriate Mitigation Actions by developing countries by 2020. The map displays information contained in the corresponding official documents pertaining to both developed countries and developing countries.

Second round of Multilateral Assessment insights

On 4 & 5 June 2015, 24 developed countries will be assessed on their quantified emission reduction targets for 2020 at the 42nd session of the Subsidiary Body for Implementation (SBI) in Bonn.

The Republic of the Congo submitted its instrument of acceptance of the Doha amendment to the Kyoto Protocol on 14 May 2015. The amendment is expected to enter into force after three quarters of the Parties to the Protocol submit their instruments of acceptance to the Depositary. The United Nations is encouraging governments to speed up their ratification of the second commitment period of the Kyoto Protocol, the international emissions reduction treaty. To date, 31 Parties have accepted the extension and 144 are required to bring it into force.
