Official title: Equity Review of INDCs – Results and Lessons
Learned For Closing the Ambition Gaps after Paris


This event will present lessons learned from the three major reviews of the INDCs – by the UNFCCC, The Civil Society Equity Review, and the UNEP Gap report – and focus on their implications for the ongoing discussions at COP21, especially with regards to the differentiation debate, the design of a robust ambition acceleration mechanism for the INDCs, and the continued imperative of substantive ex-ante science and equity-based reviews of countries’ nationally determined contributions as part of a dynamic contribution cycle.


After two presentations from civil society, a distinguished panel of Party respondents will discuss these themes before the floor is opened to question from the audience.


This side event is hosted by the Equity Working Group of Climate Action Network International and partners.
