Abstract

Economies of the Asia-Pacific have already set in motion their strategies towards the temperature goal of ‘holding the increase in the global average temperature to well below 2°C above pre-industrial levels’, and to increase ‘the ability to adapt to the adverse impacts of climate change and foster climate resilience’ through their NDCs.

NDCs in the region present far-reaching efforts to mitigate emissions and strengthen resilience to shift the paradigm of development onto a low carbon and climate resilient pathway. This report provides a first assessment by UNESCAP of the NDCs in the Asia-Pacific region, an overview of the region’s priorities, progress and opportunities, and the efforts underway to use carbon pricing, and regional linking, as a means to achieve the NDCs in a cost-efficient manner.
