Abstract

Since the climate negotiations in Copenhagen (2009), many countries have pledged to reduce their greenhouse gas emissions by 2020. These pledges were "anchored" in the 2010 Cancun Agreements. Since the Cancun climate negotiations, developing countries have published new information about their business-as-usual emission projections. These - upward - projections have led to higher expected emission levels from the pledges, and have increased the emission gap towards achieving the 2 degree Celsius climate goal.

This report is the result of work done for the European Commission (DG Climate Action) and the Dutch Ministry of Infrastructure and the Environment.
