Intended Nationally Determined Contributions (INDCs) of Sri Lanka
Being a party to the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC), Sri Lanka
has developed and submitted Intended Nationally Determined Contributions (INDCs) for the Paris
Agreement in the efforts of Greenhouse Gas (GHG) emissions reduction, in line with the objective of
keeping global warming well below 20 Celsius. Sri Lanka's INDCs consist of Mitigation, Adaptation,
Means of Implementation (finance, technology development and transfer, capacity building) and Loss
and Damage. Click hear to access the details of Sri Lanka's INDCs submitted ......

A dashboard and map view lets you explore summaries and a detailed view is available for in-depth information.
The CAIT Projections module provides ready access to emission projections for major emitters through the year 2100 (if data is available). In addition, this tool aims to increase the transparency of each scenario by publishing key assumptions and other related information.
The CAIT Equity Explorer helps visualize the many dimensions of climate equity in the context of the international climate negotiations. It can be used in the development of individual climate contributions by making a a holistic set of indicators of climate equity available and visualizing them.
Dive deeper into the CAIT Historical Emissions data with the Google Public Data Explorer. Use it to compare country-level and region-level emissions by gases, sectors, per capita information, GDP and other socio-economic indicators and create your own visualizations and animations.
CAIT Business offers the most trusted, decision-relevant data on how companies are contributing and responding to climate change. Full transparency empowers public and private sector leaders, civil society, NGOs and the media to take action to manage companies' climate impacts.
GFW Climate is mapping platform that increases transparency about the climate impacts of tropical deforestation and gives access to comprehensible data on carbon emissions. It provides a benchmark for measuring countries’ emissions and tracking progress toward meeting emissions-reduction goals.
