Dear Johnnie, Thanks for being among the first to help kick-off the proposal submission period for the Global Climate Action Plan contest of MIT's Climate CoLab. I'm one of the Fellow for this contest, here to serve as a liaison to the CoLab, answer questions, and provide substantive feedback to help strengthen proposals. Fellows will also have a role in the evaluative phase of this contest. Looks like you're off to a good start with the context-setting for your proposal. Next, we'll be looking to see how you flesh this out into a concrete proposal for a global plan. In this contest, you'll be asked to select and combine from the proposals in the various regional contests, in order to develop your own proposal for a comprehensive global plan. The regional contest submission period is still open, so bear in mind that new proposals may continue to be added for the next few days, up until the deadline. Thanks for your contribution to the CoLab, and looking forward to seeing how you build out your proposal further.

Having trouble finding regional plans to integrate into your Global Climate Action Plan?

We have added some “seed proposals” — national and regional plans that have already been proposed by governments or organizations around the world, that you can incorporate into your Global Climate Action Plan.

For example, now on the website are:

- the emission reduction commitments submitted by countries in advance of the UNFCCC's 2015 climate negotiations, known as the Intended Nationally Determined Contributions, or INDC’s; and

- scenarios through which countries around the world could reach significant carbon reductions, prepared by the Deep Decarbonization Pathways Project (DDPP).
The INDC’s and DDPP plans have been uploaded to the Regional Plan Workspace for the 6 major nations/regions: United States, European Union, India, China, Other Developed Countries and Other Developing countries.

If you would like to use any of these plans in your Global Climate Action Plan, you can select them under the proposal field, “Which plan did you select for…?”  They are located in the Regional Plan Workspace, under the titles: "Seed Proposal: Deep Decarbonization Pathways Project in…” and "Seed proposal: INDC submitted to 2015 UN climate negotiations by…”.  Feel free to link to them now; the content will be completed before your revision deadline.
