International Dialogue on Pre-2020 Climate Commitments: Have Developed Countries Delivered? How Can They Regain Trust?

28 Jul 2021   |   1500–1645 hrs IST

Based on the principle of equity and common but differentiated responsibilities and respective capabilities, the onus to reduce greenhouse gas emissions during the pre-2020 period was placed on the developed countries. However, this period witnessed several setbacks characterised by poor participation of developed countries and their performance. This presents a grim picture for pre-2020 outcomes, posing economic, environmental, and political risks to achieving post-2020 goals, and reinforcing existing inequalities between developed and developing nations.

This webinar will showcase differentiated positions of the developed countries with respect to their performance in the pre-2020 regime. The discussion would centre around the need - and mechanisms - to accelerate time-bound actions to meet erstwhile climate targets to strengthen trust and confidence among the developing and developed nations. In the session, we will also launch a new CEEW study, 'Unpacking Pre-2020 Climate Commitments: Who Delivered, How Much, and How will the Gaps be Addressed?'.
