COP21 - A Crucial Pathway Towards Attaining a New Universal Climate Agreement Summary A total of
196 parties (195 countries and the European Union (EU)) will gather at the United Nations(UN) 21st
Conference of the Parties (COP21) in Paris from November 30 to December 11, 2015, to discuss a global
climate change agreement to limit the rise in global temperature to 2?C by 2100. The major focus areas
of the conference will include decreasing Greenhouse Gas (GHG) emissions and promoting sustainable
development (UNDP, 2015). The first commitment under the Kyoto Protocol, which came into force in
2005, was a breakthrough in the international negotiations on climate change. It aimed to decrease GHG
emissions by 5% from 1990 levels during the 2008-2012 period. COP15, held in Copenhagen in
December 2009, was unsuccessful in setting up an agreement to substitute for the Kyoto Protocol,
which was subsequently extended to 2020 at the Doha Conference of the same year. The second
commitment aimed to decrease GHG emissions by around 18% from 1990 levels during the 2013-2020
period (UNFCCC, 2015a). However, China, which stands first in terms of global Carbon Dioxide (CO2)
emissions, has no obligations under this protocol. The Warsaw Climate Change Conference and the Lima
Climate Change Conference, held in 2013 and 2014 respectively, led to crucial advances towards COP21
(UN COP, 2015). Ahead of COP21, the United Nations Development Programme (UNDP) has offered its
support to countries to come up with their corresponding climate targets and actions - referred to as
Intended Nationally Determined Contributions (INDC) - which will serve as a critical component of the
COP21 process. After the conference, UNDP, along with its partners, will continue executing actions to
attain success against the set INDC targets. It will also provide support for the promotion of clean and
renewable energy sources, emphasis on forestry and avoiding deforestation, and expand investments in
climate change adoption. Scope - The report covers an overview of INDC submissions and efforts
undertaken by major countries to combat global climatic conditions ahead of the COP21 and challenges
likely to be witnessed at the conference Reasons to buy - To gain insight on the INDC submissions by the
