The unprecedented challenge of climate change requires rapid and deep transformations – in virtually all sectors and all parts of society – away from the prevailing carbon-intensive, high-emission modes of production and consumption.

Compared to the previous five-year assessment period 2011–2015, the current five-year period 2015–2019 has seen a continued increase in carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions and an accelerated increase in the atmospheric concentration of major greenhouse gases (GHGs), with growth rates nearly 20% higher.

For three decades, advocates for climate change policy have simultaneously emphasized the urgency of taking ambitious actions to mitigate greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions and provided false reassurances of the feasibility of doing so.

As a Party to the Convention, Nigeria has submitted its First and Second National Communications to the Conference of the Parties in 2003 and 2014 respectively. It has also submitted its first Biennial Update Report (BUR) in 2018, which contains updates of national Greenhouse Gas (GHG) inventories.

Electrification, hydrogen, enhanced efficiency, and other technological innovations are essential for long term greenhouse gas (GHG) emission reductions in the industrial sector (Rissman, et. al. 2020).

Four years on from the Dieselgate scandal - which exposed the failure to curb toxic air pollution from cars and shook confidence in EU emissions regulation - Europe is in the process of setting a new pollutant emissions standard for light and heavy duty vehicles.

Compilation of capacity-building activities undertaken by bodies established under the Convention and its Kyoto Protocol. This addendum to the compilation and synthesis report on capacity-building work of bodies established under the Convention and its Kyoto Protocol provides a compilation of the information on capacity-building activities.

While global attention is focused on efforts to fight the coronavirus pandemic, climate change will remain a defining long-term challenge that requires policies to create sustainable economies.

The greenhouse gases (GHG) emission inventory for the country is prepared according to the requirements under the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC) based on the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) guidelines.

India has ratified the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC) which is the primary multilateral treaty governing actions to combat climate change through adaptation and mitigation efforts directed at control of emission of Green House Gases (GHGs) that cause global warming.
