Unless developing Asia decarbonizes its development, global warming is unlikely to stay below the internationally agreed limit of 2°C above preindustrial levels. Integrated assessment modeling offers insights into how a low carbon transition can be achieved.

Reducing black carbon emissions will help in avoiding climate tipping points, building resilience and delivering clean air. This policy brief outlines the latest science on black carbon, examples of cost effective solutions, and recommendations for policymakers, funders and governments.

The Tourism and Climate Change Stocktake 2023, through its 24 key findings, will reveal strengths and weaknesses in tourism climate adaptation, emission reduction, policy, finance, and capacity building.
