Empirical Analysis of BRICS countries pathway toward Low-carbon environment
CAT methodical approaches six critical areas in assessing every country's commitment to Nationally Determined Contributions (NDC) to the Paris Agreement and UNFCCC protocols. Table 1 explains these six criteria of CAT assessment. To provide policy makers, civil society, and the media with an up-to-date assessment of countries' individual reduction targets and a global overview of their combined effects, the Climate Action Tracker (CAT) project was launched in 2009. All of this is being done in order to make these pledges more transparent and to encourage those governments that haven't made them yet to do so. In addition, CAT assesses whether countries are on track to meet their commitments with current implemented policies.
