Tourism accounts for around 8 per cent of global greenhouse gas emissions, according to a new study that marks the first attempt to quantify the industry’s total carbon footprint.

Tourism contributes significantly to global gross domestic product, and is forecast to grow at an annual 4%, thus outpacing many other economic sectors. However, global carbon emissions related to tourism are currently not well quantified. Here, we quantify tourism-related global carbon flows between 160 countries, and their carbon footprints under origin and destination accounting perspectives.

Finance for poor countries to help them reduce their greenhouse gas emissions and deal with climate change is lagging behind the promises of rich countries, an Oxfam report finds.

Global warming of 1.5°C or 2°C: The lower limit would reduce flood hazards

European Union carbon emissions from burning fossil fuels increased in 2017, statistics office Eurostat said on Friday, indicating that the reduction of emissions blamed for climate change remains

A report by E3G assessing progress of six Multilateral Development Banks (MDBs) in aligning their financial flows with the Paris Agreement on climate change.

This report explores the potential implications which two groups of experimental technologies aimed at managing global climate risk, known as Carbon Removal and Solar Geoengineering, could have for delivery of the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).

Banks are under pressure to disclose how their lending and investment activities affect global climate goals, but have struggled to choose the right metrics.

NewClimate Institute, PBL Netherlands Environmental Assessment Agency and IIASA present an overview of on climate change mitigation policies in 25 major emitting countries/regions that have been adopted since July 2017.

Among other issues, the detrimental effect of global warming would be discussed by the experts during the Summit on Climate Resilient Mountain Agriculture to be held at Forest Research Institute (F
