The CCPI has been used by the Portuguese government to communicate achievements and to explain setbacks. Is has been a yearly indicator that is followed by stakeholders and extensively picked by the press as an evaluation tool of the progress of climate change policies in our country.
Since 2005, the CCPI has been contributing to a clearer understanding of national and international climate policies. The CCPI is an important tool for tracking countries' climate action performances and enabling comparison of the efforts and progress made by 57 countries and the European Union, covering more than 90% of global GHG emissions. An impressive result, made possible by the joint contribution of NGOs experts working within their respective countries, fighting for the implementation of the climate policies that we desperately need to reach our common goal of limiting global warming to 1.5°C.
I have been following the CCPI since its launch in 2005. To me, the index serves as an annual report card on the climate protection performance of Malaysia, in particular, and other countries in general.
When we first reached out to the CCPI team we didn't anticipate the support and collaborative spirit that we were met with. They have been very flexible and insightful in assisting our own climate policy research. We certainly look forward to continuing to work with the CCPI in the future!
