4 nations are the first to present stronger climate plans (NDCs). Who`s next? The report reports progress in 15 indicators, two indicators showing a sufficient pace of progress to reach the 1.5oC target and two indicators “in the wrong direction” as a whole. The report notes that exponential systemic changes are achievable due to the transitions caused by the advent of technology in cars, phones and computers. Although climate finance has increased significantly in the public, private and philanthropic sectors, the report argued that it has not yet reached the level needed to revolutionize energy, transportation and energy efficiency and protect forests. According to the report, by 2050, it is estimated that ICI 1,600 billion 2050 will be needed to transform the world`s only energy sector. The report assesses progress in reducing emissions by 2030 and 2050 in 21 benchmarks in the areas of energy, construction, industry, transport, forestry and agriculture. WRI provides real-time monitoring and analysis of national contributions (NDCs) as well as a series of products to help policy makers achieve the goals of the Paris Agreement.

Improving Chile`s climate plan is an example for other countries Beyond the urgency of dealing with the climate crisis, countries will benefit from many other ways to improve their NDCs. As countries update their national contributions (NDC) in the run-up to the Glasgow climate change conference and develop long-term low-carbon development strategies (LEDS) and mobilize billions of dollars to support the resumption of COVID 19, it remains possible to achieve the ambitions of the Paris Climate Change Agreement , says the report. This, WRI points out, requires smart and proactive investments in key sectors.
