Climate Governance in Rwanda

The CAT Climate Governance series seeks to produce a practical framework for assessing a government’s readiness - both from an institutional and governance point of view - to ratchet up climate policy and implement adequate transformational policies on the ground, to enable the required economy-wide transformation towards a zero emissions read more...

Global reaction to energy crisis risks zero carbon transition

The world is going through a major energy crisis as a result of Russia’s invasion of Ukraine. At the same time, the next few years are critical for climate action—a last chance to keep the 1.5°C temperature limit within reach.So far, governments have largely failed to seize their chance to read more...

Despite Glasgow Climate Pact 2030 climate target updates have stalled

Despite the clear warning on the extreme dangers of exceeding 1.5°C warming from the IPCC, progress on new, more ambitious 2030 climate targets and participation in sectoral initiatives have stalled since COP26 in Glasgow. This goes against the clear agreement of the Glasgow Pact to update national 2030 climate targets read more...

Natural gas in India: A pathway towards reducing India’s dependency on gas

In this report, we have analysed India’s potential savings on gas imports and an improved trade balance in a 1.5°C compatible low gas scenario. Our analysis shows that if India aligns with a 1.5°C compatible pathway, it would lead to gas import savings of USD 9-24 bn in 2030 under read more...

Natural gas in Africa: Why fossil fuels cannot sustainably meet the continent’s growing energy demand

Fossil fuel use is on the rise, with 70% of the increase in fossil CO2 emissions projected to come from natural gas by 2030 if current policies are not strengthened to align with the Paris Agreement goal to limit global warming to 1.5°C.To meet the objectives of the Paris Agreement:No read more...

Decarbonising buildings: achieving zero carbon heating and cooling

The urgency of addressing emissions from buildings is clear; greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions from this sector make up roughly a fifth of total global emissions. Despite the rapidly diminishing global carbon budget and need for all sectors to decarbonise, buildings sector emissions have remained stubbornly consistent. While there is positive read more...

Glasgow’s 2030 credibility gap: net zero’s lip service to climate action

In Paris, all governments solemnly promised to come to COP26 with more ambitious 2030 commitments to close the massive 2030 emissions gap that was already evident in 2015. Three years later the IPCC Special Report on 1.5°C reinforced the scientific imperative, and earlier this year it called a climate “code read more...
