UN report paints bleak future on climate change
While the majority of nations have increased their individual levels of ambition to reduce greenhouse gas emissions, their combined impact only achieves a one per cent reduction, the UN has said.
The findings of a just-released report paint a bleak picture, with emissions reductions far from set targets. The Synthesis Report by the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change assesses efforts made by countries to reduce greenhouse gas emissions and tackle climate change.
Responding to the report, Mohamed Adow, Director of Power Shift Africa, the Nairobi-based climate change and renewable energy think tank, said: “If you believe the rhetoric of world leaders, you’d think they were making great progress and about to solve it. This is why it’s good to have a report that lays out the facts in stark reality.”
