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.

Report of the structured expert dialogue on 2013-2015 review
The structured expert dialogue (SED) was established to support the work of the SBSTA and SBI on the 2013-2015 review and to ensure the scientific integrity of the review. The SED completed its work and released a report that summarises the face-to-face dialogue among over 70 Parties on the adequacy of the long-term global goal to keep the global average temperature from rising below 2°C above pre-industrial levels and the overall progress made towards this goal. This report will be considered by SBSTA and SBI at this session together with submissions from Parties on the 2013-2105 review.

A special event by the structured expert dialogue co-chairs to present the report will be held on 2 June, at 11:00 AM – 1:00 PM (see details here).

The Republic of Korea submitted its instrument of acceptance of the Doha amendment to the Kyoto Protocol on 27 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, 32 Parties have accepted the extension and 144 are required to bring it into force.
