India on path to meet climate targets, rich world falling short Sixteen of the 25 major carbon emitting countries, including the United States, Australia, Canada and the EU nations (counted together) are not on track to achieve their Paris pledges, says a new global report released in Germany on Wednesday. The report, based on scientific analysis of what all the top 25 emitters have been doing to cut their emissions, has noted that only nine of these countries, including India and China, are "on track to achieve or even overachieve their self-determined unconditional" targets. This new report by the International Institute for Applied Systems Analysis (IIASA) and two other institutions including New Climate Institute provides an overview of projected greenhouse gas emissions in 25 major emitting countriesregion up to 2030, taking into account the emission trajectories based on current policies and the implementation of their nationally determined contributions (NDCs) under the Paris Agreement. The report, while highlighting how most developed countries were falling short, attributed their poor record on the higher commitments made.
