UN Environment - Press Conference: Emissions Gap report 2019 (Geneva, 26 November 2019)
26 Nov 2019 -  Subject:
The United Nations Environment Programme’s annual Emissions Gap report reveals the temperature rise we are currently headed for by the end of the century compared to pre-industrial times. It also reveals the amount we need to cut emissions by in order to bring the temperature rise down to internationally-agreed levels. Both conditional and non-conditional pledges made by countries under the Paris Agreement are analysed. The report - which is produced together with an international team of leading scientists - furthermore lays out actions that can be taken for reducing emissions in specific sectors.
