With India being the world’s second-largest producer and consumer of steel, any meaningful global shift towards low carbon steelmaking must be based on an understanding of India’s unique context and circumstances.

The Global Stocktake, a key component of the Paris Agreement’s ratchet mechanism, assesses global progress every five years with the goal of informing countries’ NDC updates.

Previous studies have explored potential conflicts between ending poverty and limiting global warming, by focusing on the carbon emissions of the world’s poorest. This paper instead focuses on economic growth as the driver of poverty alleviation and estimates the emissions associated with the growth needed to eradicate poverty.

This paper extends recent research on satellite-based carbon dioxide measurement to an easily updated template for tracking changes in carbon dioxide concentrations at local and regional scales.

Climate-driven injustice is a significant economic and social concern associated with transition towards net-zero future, and that requires global and domestic environmental policies to be more sustainable and socially just.

Wood residues – the materials left over when trees are logged and processed – hold the potential to support resource-efficient energy access, revitalize rural economies and help mitigate climate change, according to this new report from the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations (FAO).

Greenhouse Gas (GHG) emissions are the main driving force of climate change, and all economic sectors need to internalize their costs. Food systems (including land use, production, refrigeration, food processing) account for a quarter of global GHG emissions.

Carbon markets have grown rapidly in recent years but remain poorly developed in Africa. The African continent is endowed with vast carbon sinks and pools in its forests and water resources, including in the Congo basin, which plays a key role in regulating the global climate and provide a vast range of services to economies and communities.

This paper is part of a series detailing new methodologies for estimating key components of agrifood systems emissions, with a view to disseminate the information in FAOSTAT. It describes methods for estimating greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions in households, which include fossil fuel-based energy use and non-renewable (i.e.

Long-term energy scenarios (LTES) are a vital planning tool for guiding the transition to a clean, sustainable and increasingly renewable-based energy system.
