As part of the Paris Agreement, countries worldwide agreed to keep global warming to well below 2 °C above pre-industrial levels, and to pursue efforts to limit the increase to 1.5 °C. National scale implementation is reported in the Nationally Determined Contributions (NDC) and mid-century strategies, and the Paris Agreement envisions a process for keeping track of whether the national progress is consistent with the overall objective, i.e. the global stocktake (Article 14). The so-called Talanoa Dialogue facilitates the beginning of the process to engage in this stocktake. Here we present several indicators to measure progress towards achievement of the Paris goals. These indicators are based on scenarios from the CD-LINKS and COMMIT projects, and are outcomes from so-called Integrated assessment models . Scenario information is presented on a global and for seven large G20 economies . The various indicators relate to emissions, carbon budgets, decarbonisation rates, policy coverage and innovation (see also tabs above).
