Is 1.5°C within reach for the Asia-Pacific region?

November 2021

Ambition and potential of NDC commitments of the Asia-Pacific countries

The report provides a scenario-based assessment of the collective NDC commitments of countries in the Asia-Pacific region, as well as their individual commitments to action including net-zero goals, carbon pricing commitments and removal of fossil-fuel subsidies. It also explores the steps countries in the region have been taking to build up the capacity to enable more action, such as climate finance budgeting, and monitoring and reporting. Further, based on the level of country climate ambition and national enabling environment, the study provides a series of recommendations on how to drive up the national and regional ambition to reach carbon neutrality by 2050. The report also offers an exciting new approach to analysing the role of gender mainstreaming in enabling enhanced climate action in the region. Last but not least, the report includes a number of helpful case studies from the region for policymakers, in particular, to seek inspiration to increase the ambition needed to achieve carbon neutrality by 2050.

Through its practical case studies and analytical approach, this report targets an audience who are not just climate specialists, but also officials from all levels of government, including ministries of planning, and even from specific sectors, such as energy ministries.
