About The Citizens’ Campaign:     The Citizens’ 2015 Campaign For A Global Climate Campaign provides information and materials that support the efforts of NGOs and citizens around the world to ensure a strong global climate agreement is produced. * Such an agreement is scheduled to be finalized at a Paris meeting of Heads of State in December 2015. The Citizens’ Campaign serves a worldwide network of affiliated global, regional, and local NGOs. We provide Campaign participants with information that they can use to become better informed about the content of their country’s greenhouse gas emission reduction pledges.

Climate Change Policy Hall of Fame:

Countries in our Citizens’ Campaign Climate Change Hall of Fame have either submitted exemplary Paris pledges or committed to robust climate action plans. Inducted countries’ pledges and action plans meet the Campaign’s pledge standards and focus on domestic greenhouse gas emission reduction. Nominated countries fall just short of induction and must fulfill a few minor conditions to be inducted into the Hall of Fame.

Inducted Countries:

Jersey – Jersey’s Climate Action Plan

Marshall Islands – The Marshall Islands’ INDC Pledge in Advance of COP21 Paris

Monaco – Monaco’s INDC Pledge in Advance of COP21 Paris
