CLIMATE SCIENCE TELLS US THAT URGENT AND DRAMATIC ACTION IS NEEDED TO HAVE ANY CHANCE AT STOPPING IRREVERSIBLE GLOBAL WARMING

Accepting the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) scenarios provide us with a global carbon budget that will be consumed in 10–20 years at current emissions levels, and entail very significant levels of risk. A commitment to keep at least within this limited budget, and to share the effort of doing so equitably and fairly, is at the heart of the international debate around climate change.

The level of short-term ambition for emissions reductions across the world and the amount of financial and other support that wealthy countries provide to poorer countries to assist them in their transitions to lower carbon futures and to reduce the risks of climate change impacts, will determine whether longer term transitions can still be feasible.

A new analysis from a diverse mix of civil society organisations seeks to ascertain whether pre-2020 emissions reductions and finance pledges of countries are ambitious enough and tolerably fair.

WHO WE ARE

As social movements, environmental and development NGOs, trade unions, faith and other civil society groups, we have come together to assess the climate commitments that have been put on the table through the UN climate negotiations.

We seek to identify which countries are offering to do their fair share, which need to do more, and present recommendations on how to close the emissions gap.
