Expert Flags Major Flaws in Iran’s Climate Action Plan

Iran’s intended contributions to help reduce greenhouse gas emissions under the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change contain multiple defects which are likely to have irreversible consequences for the country in the future, an energy expert said. 
Iran, along with around 190 other countries, submitted its Intended Nationally Determined Contribution to UNFCCC ahead of a universal climate change agreement which was reached at the UN climate conference in Paris in December 2015.
