What is the CCPI Index?
The Climate Change Performance Index (CCPI) is a scoring system designed by the German environmental and development organization to enhance transparency in international climate politics.
Since 2005 CCPI published annually. The Climate Change Performance Index (CCPI) tracks countries’ efforts to tackle climate change. It is an independent monitoring tool and it aims to enhance transparency in international climate politics and enables comparisons of climate protection efforts and progress made by individual countries.
At the end of the 2020 Paris Agreement on Climate change Protection, the Implementation Phase enters a Crucial Phase where countries are due to submit their updated nationally determined contributions (NDCs). In light of this, the CCPI aims to inform the process of rising climate ambitions. It is a long-standing and reliable tool for identifying leaders and laggards in climate protection.
- CCPI can be a powerful instrument to hold governments accountable for their responsibility to act on the climate crisis and of stimulating a race to the top in climate action.
CCPI index (Climate Change Performance Index) is collectively Published by the Germanwatch, CAN (Climate Action Network) International, and The New Climate Institute. These Organizations publish this index report by evaluating and comparing the climate protection performance of 57 countries and the EU.
