Developed by NewClimate Institute and Germanwatch, the index ties in with the global Climate Change Performance Index by Germanwatch, a rating of the 58 largest emitters of GHG emissions globally that has been published annually since 2006. This special edition now focuses on the 20 largest economies (G20). The methodology was also adjusted.

This briefing paper describes how the G20 could enable a shift of international financial flows to low-carbon and climate-resilient development, as mandated by the Paris Agreement in Article 2.1c.

The Climate Change Performance Index is an instrument supposed to enhance transparency in international climate politics. Its aim is to encourage political and social pressure on those countries which have, up to now, failed to take ambitious actions on climate protection as well as to highlight countries with best-practice climate policies.

The Climate Change Performance Index 2014 illustrate the main regional differences in climate change performance across the world.No country performed well enough to reach the category ‘very good‘. The highest rankings, with a relatively ‘good‘ performance were awarded to several European countries and Mexico. India was evaluated as ‘moderate‘
climate change protectors along with Egypt and Morocco.

The EU is no longer the world leader on climate policies. Other major countries have caught up or even outpaced the EU, a new study conducted by Germanwatch says. Even the U.S. and China now show at least as much headway in their climate change policies as the EU .

The Climate Change Performance Index aims to enhance transparency on national and international efforts to avoid dangerous climate change. On the one hand, this tool shows who is doing what regarding climate change. On the other hand, it provides more information about the strengths and weaknesses of the different countries in the various sectors.

As in previous years, the Global Climate Risk Index 2011 analyses to what extent countries have been affected by the impacts of weather-related loss events (storms, floods, heat waves etc.). The most recent available data from 2009 as well as for the period 1990-2009 were taken into account.

The Climate Change Performance Index 2009, presented by Germanwatch and CAN-Europe, shows that not a single country is
