Global warming is expected to increase the frequency and intensity of severe water scarcity (SWS) events, which negatively affect rain-fed crops such as wheat, a key source of calories and protein for humans. Here, we develop a method to simultaneously quantify SWS over the world’s entire wheat-growing area and calculate the pro

As the world strives to cut greenhouse gas emissions to meet the temperature targets of the Paris Agreement, in so doing limiting the worst impacts of climate change, it is crucial to track progress. Only by knowing where countries are going compared to where they should be, can build pressure to change course.

The need for urgent and more intensive actions against climate change is broadly recognized.

This report is the second global analysis of local and regional government and corporate climate contributions, updating “Global Climate Action from Cities, Regions, and Companies” launched at the 2018 Global Climate Action Summit.

The 2019 edition of the Commodities and Development Report is titled "Commodity Dependence, Climate Change and the Paris Agreement". It seeks to further the understanding of the interactions between climate change and the commodity sectors.

Cities worked together to summarize the most relevant information and actionable findings related to the latest science on 1.5°C.

Brick production is one of the largest emitters of greenhouse gases (GHG) and short-lived climate pollutants (SLCPs) in Bangladesh. The informal brick sector is the main contributor of this pollution.

This guidance document provides a practical framework that can be used to identify, prioritise and include mitigation measures that can increase a country’s climate change mitigation ambition through actions that improve local air quality.

This paper presents a common framework for synthesizing and analyzing the role of agriculture and land use in the NDCs to facilitate a better understanding of country priorities, challenges and support needs.

Published by WRI and UNDP, Enhancing NDCs: A Guide to Strengthening National Climate Plans is designed to help practitioners think through how to structure their country’s enhanced NDCs across three dimensions: strengthening targets to reduce emissions (mitigation), enhancing climate resilience (adaptation) and clearly communicating their action
