This report evaluates options for how countries that are parties to the Paris Agreement can cooperate to accelerate the implementation of REDD+. The five presented options, summarized below, are not mutually exclusive and can be combined to deliver a blended flow of finance in support of the implementation of REDD+ strategies.

This paper assesses each of the world’s countries in terms of whether their greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions have peaked, when they have peaked, and whether they have a commitment that implies an emissions peak in the future.

This report provides an overview of projected greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions in 25 emitting countries/regions (Argentina, Australia, Brazil, Canada, Chile, China, Colombia, Democratic Republic of the Congo (DRC), Ethiopia, the European Union, India, Indonesia, Japan, Kazakhstan, Mexico, Morocco, the Philippines, Republic of Korea, the Russian Fe

Under the UN climate talks, countries will not revisit their pledges until 2020 -- "the last opportunity to close the 2030 emissions gap," said UN Environment in its annual Emissions Gap report

In recognition of the fundamental importance of energy related environmental issues, the latest information on CO2 emissions from fuel combustion – level, growth, source and geographic distribution – will be essential to analysts and policy makers in many international fora.

A new report by CDP, shows that a growing number of companies are stepping up their response to climate change by embedding low-carbon goals into their long-term business plans, with many companies intending to ramp up ambition over the next couple of years.

Businesses in India are increasingly focusing on setting their emission reduction and renewable energy targets by aligning themselves with the country's climate action plan under the Paris Agreement, an analysis by the Carbon Disclosure Project (CDP) India said in a report.

Deploying current technologies to decarbonise the steel and cement industries is unlikely to be sufficient to meet the Paris Agreement’s 1.5?C limit, according to a new Climate Action Tracker (CAT) study - "Manufacturing a low-carbon society: how can we reduce emissions from cement and steel?".

Most nations recently agreed to hold global average temperature rise to well below 2 °C. We examine how much climate mitigation nature can contribute to this goal with a comprehensive analysis of “natural climate solutions” (NCS): 20 conservation, restoration, and/or improved land management actions that increase carbon storage and/or avoid greenhouse gas emissions across global forests, wetlands, grasslands, and agricultural lands. We show that NCS can provide over one-third of the cost-effective climate mitigation needed between now and 2030 to stabilize warming to below 2 °C.

The explicit reference to “a balance between anthropogenic emissions by sources and removals by sinks of greenhouse gases” (Art. 4) in the 2015 Paris Agreement has given a strong impetus to Carbon Dioxide Removal (CDR) proposals that aim to remove greenhouse gas emissions through bioenergy and carbon capture and storage (BECCS).
