NewClimate Institute, PBL Netherlands Environmental Assessment Agency and IIASA present an overview of on climate change mitigation policies in 25 major emitting countries/regions that have been adopted since July 2017.

CO2 emissions and total global greenhouse gas emissions are reported for 2016, based on the latest update of the EDGAR v4.3.2 database, using statistics, where available, up to and including 2016.

Global emissions of climate-warming carbon dioxide remained static in 2016, a welcome sign that the world is making at least some progress in the battle against global warming by halting the long-term rising trend.

In 1992, governments worldwide agreed to work towards a more sustainable development that would eradicate poverty, halt climate change and conserve ecosystems.

Following the United Nations Climate Change Conference in Durban, in 2011, international climate policy has taken a

This paper discusses the method and results of a trend assessment of global CO2 emissions up to 2010 and updates the previous assessment of CO2 emissions up to and including 2009 (Olivier and Peters, 2010).

This report argues that further expansion of the global network of protected areas will be necessary, but will not be sufficient to attain a significant reduction in the rate of biodiversity loss worldwide. Structural changes in consumption and in the efficiency of production are indispensable.

In 2009, for the first time since 1992, there was no growth in global carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions from fossil fuel use, cement production and chemicals production. The recent credit crunch drove many industrialised economies into recession,

In December 2009, an important United Nations climate change conference (COP15) took place in Copenhagen, Denmark. This conference resulted in the Copenhagen Accord, which forms the basis for further negotiations in
Cancun, Mexico, later this year.

This report presents an analysis of, and discussion on, the
environmental, financial and negotiation consequences of
various strategies of dealing with surplus emission allowances
or assigned amount units (AAUs), often known as
