Update on the 2015 UN Climate Change Negotiations

May 11, 2015

In this briefing paper, Fran Aldson writes on the latest developments in the 2015 UN Climate Change Negotiations and the commitments being drafted by the individual parties. These commitments, known as the Intended Nationally Determined Contributions (or INDCs) are currently being prepared by all parties involved ahead of the Paris conference in December 2015.

In particular, this paper provides a brief insight into what an INDC is intended to be, and analyses those of four important, but very different, players, in the international climate change negotiations – the USA, the EU, Russia and Mexico.
