Unpacking Pre-2020 climate commitments: who delivered, how much, and how will the gaps be addressed?

The study, supported by Shakti Sustainable Energy Foundation, provides an overview of the performance of developed countries under the pre-2020 climate regime. It is a first-of-its-kind research in a developing country that seeks to illustrate clearly the performance of developed countries in the Kyoto Protocol and Doha Amendment. It does so by identifying accounting concerns, and gaps in achievements vis-à-vis set targets. Based on these parameters, it sets forth a ranking framework for easy comparisons of the efforts by developed countries.
