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.
