UNEP’s 5th Emissions Gap Report: Approaching COP20 in Lima – A Global Emissions Gap Analysis
|Approaching COP20 in Lima
A Global Emissions Gap Analysis.
|Brussels Launch of UNEP’s 5th Emissions Gap Report|
UNEP’s Emissions Gap Report informs governments and the wider community on how far the response to climate change has progressed over the past 12 months, and thus how far the world is currently positioned to meet the internationally agreed 2˚C limit to global warming.UNEP’s 5th Emissions Gap Report comes at a particularly crucial time for climate and energy policy. By the end of the first quarter of 2015, governments are expected to submit their national contributions towards the global climate agreement expected in Paris in December 2015. The discussions in Lima next month are a crucial milestone towards this agreement.This year’s report updates on the 2020 emissions gap, provides an estimate of the emissions gap expected for 2030 and gives particular attention to the global carbon dioxide emissions “budget” for staying within the 2˚C limit by the end of the century, benefitting from the findings from the latest IPCC reports.We would be pleased to welcome you at the panel discussions and Q&A with stakeholders to mark the launch of UNEP’s 5th Emissions Gap Report on Wednesday, 19 November 2014.
