Limiting global warming to 2 °C above pre-industrial levels is the objective agreed on in international climate negotiations. For this purpose, countries have made proposals to reduce their greenhouse gas emissions by 2020. For developed countries these reductions are based on their 1990 emission levels, whereas for developing countries these are based on projected levels without climate policy. In recent climate talks (in Bangkokin April 2011 and Bonnin June 2011) some emerging countries presented upward revisions of emission projections without climate policy. This has caused the reduction proposal of Brazil, for instance, to decrease from 37-39% to 17-21% below their original emission projections without climate policy. At the same time, international institutions increased the projected growth of emissions in China, as this country seems less affected by the current crisis than developed countries.
