INDCs are the basis of post-2020 global climate regime envisioned in the Paris Agreement. The term, acronym of “Intended Nationally Determined Contributions”, identifies the actions a national government intends to take – both in term of emission reduction and adaptation efforts – under the deal agreed in December 2015 at the 21st session of the Conference of the Parties (COP21).
After the Paris Agreement entered into force on November 4, 2016, the “intended” national climate action plans have turned into Nationally Determined Contributions (NDCs) for those countries that ratify the deal.
So far over 100 countries ratified the Paris Agreement. The updated list is available at UN Treaty collection.
Under the Paris pact, the NDCs can always be revised, but only with a higher ambition and can not be weakened.

Further details about submitted INDCs are available on Climate Policy Observer’s dedicated section.
The official archive of INDCs submitted is available at UNFCCC dedicated portal.
