Beyond the Numbers: Understanding the Transformation Induced by INDCs - Executive Summary
Iddri - MILES Project Consortium, 2015. 12 p.
This executive summary of the MILES project's report, "Beyond the numbers: Understanding the transformation induced by INDCs" , highlights 6 key messages:
INDCs imply an acceleration and consolidation of action against climate change in major economies around the world
This is particularly true in the electricity sector, where INDCs will further drive the transition towards renewables and other low-emissions forms of electricity production.
However, the report highlights that INDCs would imply uneven progress among the drivers of decarbonisation.
The INDCs need to be strengthened to keep the 2°C goal within reach.
The Paris Agreement can build a bridge between INDCs and 2°C by establishing predictable and credible mechanism for regularly strengthening targets and policies.
- INDCs can lead to significant co-benefits to climate mitigation.
