Paris Agreement Compatible Sectoral Benchmarks

While national emission trends are a useful tool for measuring government progress towards meeting the Paris Agreement 1.5˚C temperature limit at a global level, each government will have to address its own sectors, each with their own, different baseline. What should government sectoral benchmarks be? Will they meet the global read more...

Governments still showing little sign of acting on climate crisis

Under current pledges, the world will warm by 2.8°C by the end of the century, close to twice the limit they agreed in Paris. Governments are even further from the Paris temperature limit in terms of their real-world action, which would see the temperature rise by 3°C. An ‘optimistic’ take read more...

Climate crisis demands more government action as emissions rise

The last year has seen growing public concern and the formation of global movements pushing governments for serious action in the face of rising emissions and escalating climate impacts.2018 saw energy-related emissions reach yet another historic high after significant net greenhouse gas increases, 85% of which came from the US, read more...

Some progress since Paris, but not enough, as governments amble towards 3°C of warming

The Climate Action Tracker (CAT) estimate of the total warming of the aggregate effect of Paris Agreement commitments and of real-world policy shows little change. If all governments achieved their Paris Agreement commitments the world will likely warm 3.0°C—twice the 1.5°C limit they agreed in Paris. Underneath the lack of read more...

Paris Tango. Climate action so far in 2018: individual countries step forward, others backward, risking stranded coal assets

The Climate Action Tracker has updated our assessments of 23 of the 32 countries whose development on climate action we track.While some progress has been made since November, most governments’ policies are still not on track towards meeting their Paris Agreement commitments, many of which are in themselves far from read more...

Improvement in warming outlook as India and China move ahead, but Paris Agreement gap still looms large

The Climate Action Tracker has updated its estimates of global progress towards the Paris Agreement goals, with some positive and negative findings: Significant improvement on climate action globally, despite US rollbacks0.2°C improvement in climate action since 2016, reducing projected warming by 2100 to 3.4°C. For the first time since the read more...

Climate pledges will bring 2.7°C of warming, potential for more action

With 158 climate pledges now submitted to the UN, accounting for 94% of global emissions, the Climate Action Tracker today confirmed this would result in around 2.7°C of warming in 2100 – if all governments met their pledge. “This level of warming is still well above the agreed limit of read more...

G20 - all INDCs in, but large Gap remains

The 2015 G20 Summit, (Turkey, 15-16 November) will see Heads of State and Government meet to discuss, among other issues, development, energy and climate change finance.All G20 members have presented their “intended nationally determined contributions” or INDCs, to the UNFCCC for the Paris Agreement. The Climate Action Tracker (CAT) has read more...

Will an in increase in share of renewable power in Brazil and United States be enough to curb emissions to levels consistent with necessary reductions in the countries?

The 20% goal for renewables in the US and Brazilian power sectors is a step in the rightdirection. The main positive point is that it is an example of countries agreeing to worktogether on their way to low carbon economy. In both, Brazil and the United States long-termpolicies ensuring investment read more...
