Nations must go further than current Paris pledges or face global warming of 2.5-2.9°C

As global temperatures and greenhouse gas emissions break records, the latest Emissions Gap Report from the UN Environment Programme (UNEP) finds that current pledges under the Paris Agreement put the world on track for a 2.5-2.9°C temperature rise above pre-industrial levels this century, pointing to the urgent need for increased climate action.  

Released ahead of the 2023 climate summit in Dubai, United Arab Emirates, the Emissions Gap Report 2023: Broken Record – Temperatures hit new highs, yet world fails to cut emissions (again), finds that global low-carbon transformations are needed to deliver cuts to predicted 2030 greenhouse gas emissions of 28 per cent for a 2°C pathway and 42 per cent for a 1.5°C pathway. 

Maintaining the possibility of achieving the Paris Agreement temperature goals hinges on significantly strengthening mitigation this decade to narrow the emissions gap. This will facilitate more ambitious targets for 2035 in the next round of Nationally Determined Contributions (NDCs) and increase the chances of meeting net-zero pledges, which now cover around 80 per cent of global emissions.

            The UN Environment Programme's Emissions Gap Report highlights a concerning scenario where current Paris Agreement pledges fall short, putting the world on a trajectory for a 2.5-2.9°C temperature rise above pre-industrial levels. This report underscores the urgency of enhanced climate action, especially as global temperatures and greenhouse gas emissions continue to break records.

                The current Paris pledges, while a step in the right direction, are not enough to limit global warming to a safe level. It is crucial that governments and individuals alike prioritize reducing greenhouse gas emissions and transitioning to renewable energy sources. Failure to do so could have devastating consequences for our planet and future generations.
