Accounting for Nationally Determined Contributions

The 2015 Paris Agreement requires Parties to regularly communicate nationally determined contributions (NDCs) in which they specify their national climate mitigation targets and actions. This document provides practical guidance for countries on how to account for greenhouse gas emissions targets communicated in NDCs. The Guidance explains key elements of the Paris Agreement, Katowice Rulebook adopted at COP23 in 2018, and further decisions adopted at COP26 in Glasgow in 2021.
