Abstract

In the famous classic tale, Alice in Wonderland, the Cheshire Cat gives Alice sound advice on travelling. According to the Cat, the traveler needs to know where he wants to go, to know which way to go.1 This advice is relevant to all countries operating under a post-2015 international climate change regime. The necessary transition to a low carbon society is only possible where a country is clear about its goal to reduce its greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions, and chooses a pathway congruent with this goal. Through their Nationally Determined Contributions (NDCs), Parties to the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC) are increasingly demonstrating this Cheshire Cat wisdom, given their clarity on individual goals aimed at contributing to averting dangerous climate change.
