In 2019, the growth in global greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions (excluding those from land-use change) slowed down to 0.6%, reaching 51.7 gigatonnes of CO2 equivalent (GtCO2 eq. This revised growth rate is half of last year’s estimate of 1.1% and less than half of the average annual growth rate of 1.5% since 2005.

Climate change has far-reaching impacts that are not limited to a particular sector or geography; it impacts the entire financial system. If left unchecked, this impact will be severe.

Governments should take "radical and immediate" action to ensure the world remains on the pathway to keeping global warming below 2°C, the International Renewable Energy Agency (IRENA) said in the World Energy Transitions Outlook 2022 report.

Global energy-related carbon dioxide emissions rose by 6% in 2021 to 36.3 billion tonnes, their highest ever level, as the world economy rebounded strongly from the Covid-19 crisis and relied heavily on coal to power that growth, according to this IEA analysis.

The ASEAN fuel economy roadmap, developed and adopted by ASEAN transport ministers in 2018, outlines a vision to transform the light-duty vehicle market in the ASEAN region into one of the world’s most fuel efficient.

Fragile states in sub-Saharan Africa (SSA) face challenges to respond to the effects of climate shocks and rising temperatures. Fragility is linked to structural weaknesses, government failure, and lack of institutional basic functions. Against this setup, climate change could add to risks.

This paper proposes a projection of macroeconomic and environmental conditions to 2030 in order to help clarify some of the likely major Economic and Environmental challenges facing Developing Economies in their efforts to achieve the Sustainable Development Goals.

The paper empirically assesses the effect of climate policy stringency on innovation and economic performance, both directly on regulated sectors and indirectly through supply chain relationships. The analysis is based on a combination of firm- and sector-level data, covering 19 countries and the period from 1990 to 2015.

This paper examines carbon emissions across the garment sector as counted using the two prominent methodologies for calculating emissions – the life cycle assessment (LCA) and carbon accounting in line with the Greenhouse Gas Protocol.

This book introduces a multi-disciplinary and comprehensive research on China's long-term low-carbon emission strategies and pathways.
