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.

Participate in the second round of Multilateral Assessment

The second round of the newly established multilateral assessment (MA) will be conducted at the forty-second session of the Subsidiary Body for Implementation (SBI) in Bonn in June 2015. The assessment process offers a unique opportunity to engage all countries to assess how developed countries are implementing actions to reduce emissions. pdf-icon The notification letter on the second round of MA (134 kB) was sent to national focal points on 25 February 2015.

A total of 24 developed countries will be assessed at SBI 42 of their progress towards achieving the economy-wide emission reduction targets. All countries had the opportunity to raise and register questions to the 24 Parties during the period 1 - 31 March 2015. The compiled list of questions received by each Party under assessment can be found on the individual Party page

The answer period, which spans from 1 April to 28 May 2015, is now open to the 24 countries being multilaterally assessed. During the answer period, countries will endeavour to respond to the submitted questions.

Responses will be made available on the UNFCCC website prior to SBI 42 in Bonn.

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, 28 Parties have accepted the extension and 144 are required to bring it into force.
