Climate Action Tracker

As of: April 2020

Objective and activities

The Climate Action Tracker (CAT) conducts an independent, transparent assessment on the national and global implementation of the Paris Agreement in over 30. The analysis will be continuously updated, in particular the COPs and the 2018 global stocktake process. The CAT will enhance understanding of the effect and sufficiency of national mitigation actions by evaluating their consequences on climate change and empower governments to take further actions to ensure the 1.5/2°C limit. This project is comprised of three Work Packages: 1) National assessments (Details of the pledges/implementation gaps); 2) Fairness and ambition (assessment of compatibility and comparability of national pledges, as well as options for additional mitigation); 3) Global aggregate effect (calculation of the temperature increase resulting from all actions including the impact of international rules as well as GHG emissions gaps compared to the 1.5/2°C-compatible pathways).

State of implementation/results

Since the program started, the Climate Action Tracker (CAT) has regularly updated its country ratings and published them on the project website. In addition, the team is regularly involved in climate negotiations, as part of press conferences and contributions to side events. - The latest releases are:
