The Paris Agreement, a legally binding international treaty on climate change, was adopted by 196 Parties at Conference of Parties (COP) 21 in Paris, December 2015 and entered into force in November 2016. Nationally Determined Contributions (NDCs) comprise a core part of this agreement that are used by many countries to announce their climate pledges, especially pre- and post-COP 26, which was recently held in Glasgow at the end of 2021.This note is divided into three sections:
1. Overview of Nationally Determined Contributions (NDCs)
2. Analysis of data on NDCs submitted to UNFCCC
3. Conclusion and analyst view.
