Rich countries off track on climate action, says a report by Hindustan times.

Only two developed countries-- Norway and Belarus are on track to achieve their nationally determined contributions (NDCs) for this decade, a new issue brief released by Council on Energy, Environment and Water (CEEW) said on Thursday.
Developed countries are projected to collectively emit around 3.7 giga tonnes extra carbon dioxide (CO2) in 2030, against the reduction goals expressed in their nationally determined contributions (NDCs) under the 2015 Paris Agreement, CEEW said.
“This represents a 38% emission overshoot, with the United States, European Union, and Russia responsible for 83% of this,” the issue brief, published in collaboration with the TRANGOV project at Wageningen University & Research added. The report draws on developed countries’ self-disclosed information in official climate transparency reports. Based on this information, the study assesses past performance, as well as ambition of- and progress towards the implementation of key climate targets.
The brief highlighted that mitigation efforts of developed countries have direct implications for the limited carbon budget available to developing countries, which need sufficient carbon space to address development challenges. For this assessment, authors used datasets officially disclosed by developed countries in their reports as submitted under United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC) transparency arrangements. They have considered developed countries as defined as Annex 1 parties under UNFCCC.

    The report by Hindustan Times underscores a concerning reality – most developed countries are falling short of their climate action commitments. With only Norway and Belarus on track to meet their NDCs, it's evident that many developed nations are failing to reduce emissions in line with the Paris Agreement. This discrepancy, with an anticipated 38% overshoot in emissions, is a global challenge, especially given the significant responsibility of the United States, European Union, and Russia. The failure of rich nations to meet their climate goals directly impacts developing countries, limiting their carbon budget for addressing their development needs. This report highlights the urgency of collective and equitable action in the fight against climate change.

      They should up their game and show the developing countries that it's achievable, developed countries should set a good example.
