    The Future of Malaysia’s International Climate Commitments

    As the world prepares for COP26, attention is increasingly on the commitments countries are willing to make to further global progress towards meeting the Paris Agreement goal of limiting the average global surface temperature increase to 2°C above preindustrial levels. These ‘nationally determined contributions’, or NDCs, are required by the Paris Agreement to be updated every five years. Malaysia has yet to announce any changes to its Paris Agreement pledge to reduce the emissions intensity of GDP by 35% by 2030, relative to 2005 levels. Join us as we explore the variety of targets employed by countries around the world and discuss a realistic yet meaningful set of NDCs Malaysia could employ to signal greater commitment to addressing the issue of climate change.
