This technical paper describes the calculations behind an infographic (2020) that describes the UK's 'Fair Share' of emissions reduction to meet the targets of the Paris Agreement.
It includes a memo provided by the Climate Equity Reference Project, which carried out the fair shares analysis based on the Climate Equity Reference Framework. The memo describes the global mitigation pathway and the effort sharing framework used, and shows results for the UK.
It also describes the assumptions and judgements taken by the UK groups that jointly produced the infographic, for making conclusions about financial resources required for the UK to implement its fair share.
