This policy brief discusses economy-wide and sector-level benchmarks in 2030 and beyond for Japan to be consistent with the Paris Agreement’s long-term 1.5°C warming limit, based on recent analyses by the Climate Action Tracker and its member organisations, NewClimate Institute and Climate Analytics.

This report synthesises the observed impacts of climate change on Australia and the risk to the future of the current global trajectory of greenhouse gas emissions.

How is Europe’s corporate sector progressing against the Paris agreement? The 2020 CDP Europe Report, Running hot, shows that while there is strong progress in reducing carbon emissions by many of Europe’s largest companies, progress is uneven.

Since the 2018 release of the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC)’s special report on ways to limit global warming to 1.5°C, which stated the need to reach global “net zero” emissions by 2050, many organizations have either started or stepped up their carbon reduction commitments to take action to achieve this goal.

In a world facing the escalating impacts of global warming, social protection measures have a crucial role to play in protecting women, communities and economies from from the catastrophic impact of the climate crisis, and avoiding the climate poverty spiral.

This BAMS special report presents assessments of how human-caused climate change may have affected the strength and likelihood of individual extreme events.

To limit warming to 1.5°C or well below 2°C, as required by the 2015 Paris Agreement, the world needs to wind down fossil fuel production. Instead, governments continue to plan to produce coal, oil, and gas far in excess of the levels consistent with the Paris Agreement temperature limits.

To stop climate change, we have to limit global warming to 1.5°C. But can we still achieve this target? And if so, what pathways can society take in transiting towards a climate-just economy?

This report looks into how a changing climate is harming Australians' health and argues that the health sector must do more to adapt to the reality of climate change.

The recent wave of net zero targets has put the Paris Agreement’s 1.5°C within striking distance. In this briefing, the Climate Action Tracker (CAT) has calculated that global warming by 2100 could be as low as 2.1°C as a result of all the net zero pledges announced as of November 2020.
