Files included in the dataset

For each country/region there are 6 files, each run with different settings to explore the different possible types of commitments. The format of the filename is as follows:

{country/region code}_ndc_{date}_{conditionality}_{hotAir}.json

Where country/region code is the 3 letter ISO-3166-1 code for the country or a shortcode for a region, conditionality is one of the following:

  • conditional
  • range (the high/low ambitions represent min-max range of commitments)
  • unconditional

For some countries, their pledged targets are greater than what a "no additional climate policy" reference scenario would suggest. The "hotAir" component of the filename state whether these hot air pledges are included or excluded (the reference scenario for a country is used instead).

In addition to the archive of region/country level data, some additional global timeseries are provided in the "total_*.json" files. These files follow the same file template shown above.
