With this consultation response, WWF wishes to bring forward a number of essential aspects that should be incorporated into the emerging 2015 International Climate Change Agreement.

The response follows the order of the questions posed by the Commission, first laying out a number of equity principles that should underpin overall adequate emission reductions.

This is followed by a suggestion for mitigation efforts by all economies aligned with a global carbon budget, as well as complementary actions to be taken to ensure that greenhouse gas emissions start declining within the decade – in line with recent findings by climate scientists and analysts on the need to keep average global temperature increases well below 2°C.
