This policy brief presents insights that can be derived from the gap indicators in the ‘global stocktake’ dynamic web tool. Know that there is a global emissions gap, as current policies on the national level are insufficient to accomplish the objective of the Paris Agreement to keep temperature increase to well below 2 °C.
An atmospheric inversion was performed for the city of Cape Town for the period of March 2012 to June 2013, making use of in situ measurements of CO2 concentrations at temporary measurement sites located to the north-east and south-west of Cape Town.
