A new online tool has been developed for international climate policy. The NDC Explorer can be used to compare efforts to combat climate change across the world.

In 2013, the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC) called on individual countries to come up with national contributions to counter temperature rise and the effects of climate change. A total of 163 countries submitted climate plans, referred to as (Intended) Nationally Determined Contributions or (I)NTDs, stating their strategies. The (I)NDCs have become a key instrument in implementing the Paris Agreement, negotiated by 195 countries in the French capital in 2015 and have since been signed by all participating parties.
 
The NDC Explorer can be used to measure the (I)NDCs in 60 different categories, ranging from emissions through adaptation to climate financing. It allows data to be visualised with bar charts. (I)NDCs can be compared according to regions and income groups, and individual views of the tool’s world map as well as the bar charts can be downloaded for presentations and publications.
 
The new tool was developed by a team of 16 researchers representing four different organisations and headed by Peter Pauw of the Environmental Policy and Natural Resources Management Department at the German Development Institute (DIE), based in Bonn.
