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

This virtual event run by the Council on Energy, Environment and Water (CEEW), India, will centre around the need – and mechanisms – to accelerate time-bound actions to meet erstwhile climate targets to strengthen trust and confidence among developing and developed nations.

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?’.
