This report discusses inputs for countries to set their mitigation targets under the Paris Agreement, so that those targets are in line with long-term temperature limit. It reconciles different approaches and suggests closing the disparity of the results from the equity and cost-effectiveness approaches through international support.
Many large Indian businesses have committed to ambitious climate initiatives.

This working paper estimates the collective impact of voluntary climate actions by Indian companies.
The purpose of this report is to review existing urban freight movement characteristics across nine cities in Argentina, Colombia and India, provide an account of current GHG emissions from urban freight and to evolve strategies to minimize its impact.
Thailand is committed to playing its part in the international efforts aimed at addressing climate issues. As it is for most countries, the power sector in Thailand is among the largest emitters, accounting for 38% of energy-related CO2 emissions.
The authors conducted a large-sample global survey on climate economics, which we sent to all economists who have published climate-related research in the field’s highest-ranked academic journals; 738 responded.

How does Canada stack up when it comes to climate policy in agriculture? While the nation has made important strides in allocating climate-related funding for agriculture in its updated climate plan, it remains far behind global peers.
Many companies are beginning to incorporate nature-based solutions (NBS) in their climate mitigation strategies to offset fossil fuel emissions. At the same time, financing of NBS is an essential and urgently needed component of society’s transition to net-zero emissions.
