The only 7 countries that are on track to meet the Paris Agreement—and How they're doing it

sexta-feira, setembro 13, 2019

The Paris Agreement, ratified in 2015 by 195 counties, was one of the most ambitious diplomatic accords in history and the first climate agreement of its kind. The cornerstone of that document is that the countries who signed it have pledged to work toward keeping global warming below 2 degrees Celsius (3.6 degrees Fahrenheit), ideally 1.5 degrees Celsius (2.7 degrees Fahrenheit). That threshold, if met, would represent humanity’s ability to prevent the worst impacts of climate change—although some repercussions are unavoidable and already underway, such as the increased intensity and frequency of natural disasters, melting ice caps, and climate-caused refugee crises around the world farms dry up from drought.

Of the many countries party to the Paris Agreement, however, few are on track to actually meet its mandates. One measure of this progress (or lack thereof) is the Climate Action Tracker (CAT), an independent scientific analysis produced by a consortium of three researcher organizations that has tracked global climate policies since 2009. CAT’s analysis monitors the progress of major nations toward goals set by the Paris Agreement, with 32 nations evaluated to date based on their national pledges, long-term targets, and current policies.

Of these countries, just seven are ranked by the CAT as 2 degrees Celsius (3.6 degrees Fahrenheit) compatible or 1.5 degrees Celsius (2.7 degrees Fahrenheit) compatible. Two of those seven rank as compatible with a global emissions reduction plan that would hold warming below 1.5 degrees Celsius, and five rank as compatible with holding warming below 2 degrees Celsius.

The United States, which announced its intention to leave the Agreement in 2017, was found by the CAT to be “critically insufficient” in terms of climate mitigation policy.

In the following gallery, Stacker explores the projected emissions, policy goals, and tangible progress of each of these seven nations based on CAT data (last updated August 2019). Read on to find out which nations made the cut and how they’re achieving their goals.

Below is the list with the names of the 7 countries:

  1. Bhutan
  2. Costa Rica
  3. Ethiopia
  4. India
  5. Philippines
  6. Moroco
  7. Gambia
