This paper examines the reasonability of the nationally determined contributions set forth and the adequacy of current and planned political actions taken by the members of the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change to uphold the Paris Climate Agreement’s aim in keeping a global temperature rise this century below 2°C above pre-industrial levels and to pursue efforts to limit the temperature increase to 1,5°C. In addition to this, this paper examines how the reasonability and adequacy of the member’s contribution and actions can be meaningfully represented through a geographical representation produced through a Geographical Information System.
The analysis shows that the member’s nationally determined contributions are inadequate that if they should be accomplished, there can be expected to be emitted 50,21 GtCO2e in the year 2030, which means that compared to the 51,9 GtCO2e which was emitted in 2016, there will be an emissions decline at 0,12 GtCO2e/year. However, the analysis also shows that the members have not been capable of living up to the determined contributions and that with the current and planned actions, there can be expected to be emitted 53,24 GtCO2e in the year 2030, which means that compared to the emission level of 2016, there will be an emissions increase at 0,09 GtCO2e/year.
