Abstract

The introduction of “nationally determined contributions” into the Paris Agreement was a risky if necessary strategy. NDCs are risky in that they are a novel device which could well underdeliver the key climate goods of mitigation, adaptation, and finance; but they are necessary given that they were likely the only means to achieve buy-in from key negotiating parties.

Keywords: Nationally determined contributions, differentiation, progression
