Keeping track of climate commitments

The new website Climate Action Tracker provides an up-to-date assessment of commitments and actions proposed by individual countries for greenhouse gas emission reductions in preparation for the UNFCCC conference in Copenhagen, December 2009. It enables the public to track the emission commitments and actions proposed by countries for a Copenhagen climate agreement. It also enables users to evaluate progress towards limiting global temperature increase to 2°C or 1.5°C. The website is a joint effort of Ecofys and Climate Analytics with the Potsdam Institute for Climate Impacts Research (PIK) funded by the European Climate Foundation.
