The Climate Action Monitor, part of the International Programme for Action of Climate (IPAC), provides a diagnostic policy framework for assessing country progress towards climate objectives. Its goal is to provide a digest of progress towards, and alignment with, Paris Agreement goals to support countries in making better-informed decisions and allow stakeholders to measure improvements more accurately.
This report by NewClimate Institute, International Institute for Applied Systems Analysis (IIASA) and FTSE Russell tracks climate mitigation efforts in 30 countries and regions. Our analysis shows that emissions trends remain far from the goals of the Paris Agreement in the period post-2020. Emissions in the 30 economies as a group are projected to increase on average by approximately 0.4% per year between 2021 and 2030.
Greenhouse Gas Emission Reduction Pledges by Selected Countries: Nationally Determined Contributions and Net-Zero Legislation
Human–related emissions of greenhouse gases (GHG) have increased globally over time. These
increasing emissions contribute to a changing climate, which is a concern for governments,
organizations, and other stakeholders. Many governments are taking steps to reduce GHG
emissions in an effort to lessen the potential impacts of climate chang
This table shows the 39 jurisdictions around the world that the Law Library of Congress has
identified as having a net zero emissions or climate neutrality goal enshrined in legislation. This
includes the European Union and its 27 member states, where a June 2021 regulation sets 2050 as
the target date for climate neutrality.
The IPCC provides regular assessments of the scientific basis of climate change, its impacts and future risks, and options for adaptation and mitigation. Created in 1988 by the World Meteorological Organization (WMO) and the United Nations Environment Programme (UNEP), the objective of the IPCC is to provide governments at all levels with scientific information that they can use to develop climate policies. IPCC reports are also a key input into international climate change negotiations.
