The conditions for exiting the UNFCCC are the same as those of the Paris Agreement. The agreement does not contain provisions on non-compliance. An 8% reduction in emissions by 2030 compared to a business scenario. This could be increased to 40% subject to international support, which would mean that emissions would reach 112 million tonnes of CO2 in 2030. Emissions in 2000 were 66MtCO2.

The North Korean NDC. “Transition to a low-carbon economy” and avoid an increase in emissions beyond the usual business as usual forecasts, depending on international support. INDC of Kuwait. National communication reports are often several hundred pages long and deal with the measures taken by a country to reduce greenhouse gas emissions, as well as a description of its vulnerabilities and effects due to climate change. [90] National communications are prepared in accordance with the guidance agreed by the Conference of the Parties to the UNFCCC. National intended contributions (NDCs), which form the basis of the Paris Agreement, are shorter and less detailed, but also follow a standardised structure and are subject to technical review by experts. Commits to producing 100% of its electricity from renewable energy by 2025. This builds on the extension of the target of 100% renewable energy by 2017, where demand is expected to increase. It was estimated that in 2014, electricity accounted for about 13% of total emissions. International support is needed. Contains an adjustment section.

Samoas INDC. Among other things, countries need to report on their greenhouse gas inventories and progress against their targets, so that external experts can assess their success. Countries should also review their commitments by 2020 and present new targets every five years to further reduce emissions. They must participate in a “global inventory” to measure the collective effort to achieve the long-term goals of the Paris Agreement. In the meantime, developed countries must also assess the amount of financial assistance they will provide to developing countries to help them reduce their emissions and adapt to the effects of climate change. Emissions will be limited to 60% of 1990 levels by 2030. In 2012, emissions accounted for 43% of the 1990 level. The promise will be revised after the restoration of the country`s “territorial integrity”. The Ukrainian INDC. A 25% reduction in emissions from 2010 to 2030 levels, based on favourable and predictable support, climate finance mechanisms and “corrections for the failure of existing market mechanisms”.
