Nationally determined contributions across the Americas. A comparative hemispheric analysis.
With the goal of facilitating dialogue on the need for increased leadership and funding in support of national climate plans across the Americas, the Institute of the Americas’ white paper provides a snapshot of the NDCs, with emphasis on 16 countries: Argentina, Barbados, Brazil, Canada, Chile, Colombia, Costa Rica, Dominican Republic, Ecuador, Guyana, Haiti, Jamaica, Mexico, Peru, Trinidad and Tobago, and the United States. Many of these NDCs have been updated. Collectively, the countries profiled in this white paper represent 90% of the Hemisphere’s total population and 98% of its combined GDP. The report also assesses progress made with the incorporation of climate pledges into national legislation. Without institutional and legislative efforts, NDCs are just empty promises. In addition, the alignment of COVID-19 recovery packages with countries’ climate pledges is explored, as this represents an opportunity to build back greener, yet it is an opportunity that has largely been ignored by many nations in the Americas aside from a few, such as Canada, Brazil and Colombia.
