NDC Assessment

New analysis from Clean Air Task Force finds that both developed and developing countries plan to use advanced low-emission energy and climate technologies like carbon management, hydrogen, and nuclear energy to meet their climate goals – underscoring the importance of increasing funding and advancing research, government support, and international collaboration to commercialize these technologies quickly.  

The report summarizes the results of CATF’s review of 42 Nationally Determined Contributions (NDCs). It documents which countries and governments plan to rely on carbon management technologies like carbon capture, utilization, storage, and direct air capture, zero-carbon fuels like hydrogen and ammonia produced using low-carbon methods, and nuclear energy to reach their goals under the Paris Agreement.
