Interpretation and Analysis of Intended Nationally Determined Contributions Submitted by Switzerland and the EU

As one of the most important preparations for the UNFCCC COP21 scheduled in late 2015 in Paris, the submission of Intended Nationally Determined Contributions (hereafter referred to as INDC), has received global attention. According to the resolution of COP19, prepared Parties are invited to submit INDCs in the first quarter of 2015. The content of the INDC submitted by one party not only represents its will to act on climate change, but also expresses its expectations for other Parties’ actions, and ultimately reflects its government’s understanding of climate equity. Last year, some Parties had put forward their schedules for submission. Up to mid March this year, Switzerland and EU have officially submitted their INDCs to the UNFCCC Secretariat. These first submitted INDCs provide an important reference to other parties, and together with the INDCs from more Parties to come pave the way for the conclusion of climate agreement in late 2015. Greenovation Hub has summarized and analyzed the submitted INDCs, and will continue to track the submission progress of other Parties before COP 21.
