To push the agenda for resource efficiency, the Survey has asked for the formulation of a national policy on the same

Carbon emissions from existing and planned fossil fuel energy plants and projects will exceed the amount needed to curb global warming, jeopardising a 1.5 degree Celsius temperature limit goal, sci

This brief provides policy recommendations to reduce air pollutants and greenhouse gas emissions in Bhutan’s transport sector. Increasing air pollutants and greenhouse gas emissions from vehicles has become a major concern in Bhutan, where vehicle ownership is growing by 15% per year.

Sikkim has embarked on the path of developing strategies to remain carbon neutral. The Sikkim Climate Inventory Monitoring System (SCIMS) is a first step in this direction.

Climate change poses a major threat to food systems and livelihoods all over the world. Climate-smart agriculture (CSA) addresses these challenges. CSA stands for including climate change into the planning and implementation of sustainable agricultural strategies.

Question raised in Lok Sabha on Use of Methanol to Reduce Green House Emissions, 27/06/2019. The Government has notified mass emission standards for flex-fuel methanol M15 or M100 and Methanol MD 95 vehicles. M-15 is a blend of 15% methanol and 85% gasoline.

Top-down economic models, such as computable general equilibrium models, are the common tools to assess the economic impacts of climate change policies. However, these models are incapable of representing the detailed technological characteristics of the sources of greenhouse gas emissions.

The last year has seen growing public concern and the formation of global movements pushing governments for serious action in the face of rising emissions and escalating climate impacts.

This policy brief presents insights that can be derived from the gap indicators in the ‘global stocktake’ dynamic web tool. Know that there is a global emissions gap, as current policies on the national level are insufficient to accomplish the objective of the Paris Agreement to keep temperature increase to well below 2 °C.

To reach the long-term temperature goal of the Paris Agreement, most countries will need to reduce emissions to net-zero in 2050 or shortly thereafter. This report considers this challenge from a sector perspective, examining decarbonisation from several different angles.
