There is no provision for quantitative analysis of country’s INDCs in the Paris Agreement.
However, according to a publication from UNEP (2016), that kind of information should be provided by countries, in order to assess collective progress in achieving the purpose of the Paris Agreement.
It is thus recommended that countries present quantitative GHG emissions estimates in their NDCs (page 26 of mentioned publication). The projections should cover two scenarios:
“a) the BAU scenario for the NDC, which links to the ‘with measures’ scenario, including the mitigation measures being applied for the current NDC accounting period and the planned measures for the next NDC accounting period.
b) the NDC mitigation scenario, which corresponds to the ‘with additional measures’ scenario, incorporating expected mitigation measures to be implemented for the accounting period of the NDC being submitted.”
