Decarbonising the Indian transport sector: pathways and policies

The CAT explored a new approach to understanding opportunities for sectoral decarbonisation, using the example of the transport sector in India. To hold global average temperature increase to 1.5°C, global CO2 emissions need to reach net-zero by 2050, with rapid decarbonisation in all sectors.Global transport emissions have continued to steadily read more...

Global update: Paris Agreement Turning Point

The recent wave of net zero targets has put the Paris Agreement’s 1.5°C within striking distance. The Climate Action Tracker (CAT) has calculated that global warming by 2100 could be as low as 2.1°C as a result of all the net zero pledges announced as of November 2020. Included in read more...

Scaling up climate action in Australia

The 1.5°C limit in the Paris Agreement is of critical importance for Australia. The continent is highly exposed to climate change impacts like sea level rise, coral reef loss, wildfires and extreme weather events. All of these effects can already be observed today and will be much worse in a read more...

Global update: Pandemic recovery with just a hint of green

In this briefing, we examine the COVID-19 recovery packages of five major emitters – China, EU27, India, South Korea and the USA; we present the global temperature update, taking into account the economic impact of COVID-19; and we share key insights from the updated assessments for 13 of the 36 read more...

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...

A government roadmap for addressing the climate and post COVID-19 economic crises

The COVID-19 pandemic presents the world with an unprecedented policy challenge: not only will it have a severe impact on the global economy likely to exceed that of both the 2008-09 Global Financial Crisis and the Great Depression, it will take place against the backdrop of the ongoing climate crisis.In 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...

Türkiye'de iklim eylemini arttırmak

Bu çalışmanın odaklandığı alanlar (elektrik arzı, karayolu ve demiryolu yolcu taşımacılığı ve konut yapıları) da dâhil olmak üzere, Türkiye’de iklim eyleminin artırılması bakımından muazzam bir potansiyel bulunuyor. İklim eylemini şimdi artırmak, bir yandan sıfır emisyonlu bir topluma geçiş için teknik açıdan uygulanabilir nitelikte sektörel dönüşüm süreçlerini başlatırken, diğer yandan da read more...
