Biggest emitters still lag on decarbonisation

The world’s largest emitters will next week be asked to account for a lack of progress in rolling out low-carbon policies required to implement and deepen the pledges made in the Paris Agreement

The world’s largest emitters will next week be asked to account for a lack of progress in rolling out low-carbon policies required to implement and deepen the pledges made in the Paris Agreement.

The COP23 high-level climate talks being held from November 6-17 in Bonn will aim at clarifying the ‘rulebook’ for putting the 2015 agreement into action, and the method by which pledged emissions cuts will be made much deeper by 2030.

The talks — largely technical in nature — will be required to prepare the ground so that by COP25 countries will be able to demonstrate clear, decisive action to slow and then reverse GHG emissions.
