Assessment of the G20 members’ long-term strategies: commonalities, gaps and areas for cooperation

According to the Paris Agreement's Article 4, paragraph 19, nations are strongly urged to create and communicate their long-term strategies (LTS) considering the principle of Common But Differentiated Responsibilities and Respective Capabilities (CBDR-RC) given the national circumstances. These strategies serve as blueprints for guiding climate actions and investments and are instrumental in charting the trajectory towards decarbonisation. Seventeen G20 members have submitted their LTS (July 2023). This report, in collaboration with NewClimate Institute, systematically assesses these 17 LTS to identify commonalities, gaps and opportunities for international cooperation for the LTS submissions.
