Description

UN Environment will present the 2018 Emissions Gap Report with a press conference and global launch event on 27 November 2018, 1600 – 17:30 at the Palais Brongniart in Paris France.

The press conference will be open to registered media and take place at 1600 local time Tuesday, November 27th.

Registered media will also be able to access the summary for policy makers and press release under embargo once they become available.

The press conference will include a presentation of key findings and data on the global emissions, analysis on the state of pledges under the Paris Agreement (Nationally Determined Constributions) and a review of new climate action in the context fiscal policy, the current pace of innovation and climate action from the private sector and sub-national level.

About the Emissions Gap Report:

UN Environment’s annual Emissions Gap Report (EGR) presents an assessment of current national mitigation efforts and the ambitions countries have presented in their Nationally Determined Contributions, which form the foundation of the Paris Agreement. The report describes the gap between the countries’ promises on how much they will reduce emissions of greenhouse gases and the actual reduction required if we are to keep global warming to a global mean temperature increase well below 2°C by the end of this Century.

This year’s publication delivers the definitive measurement of global emissions along with its annual assessment of Nationally Determined Contributions. In addition, the 2018 EGR offers new scientific insight into what meaningful climate action will look like. Through new analysis of global emissions in the context fiscal policy, the current pace of innovation and climate action from the private sector and sub-national level, the 2018 report will serve as the world’s reference point for designing the transformation we urgently need to avoid the worst impacts of a 2°C increase.

The launch will coincide with Climate Finance day and an exciting announcement from UNEP’s Finance Initiative during their biannual Global Finance Roundtable which will bring together CEO’s from 14 of the world’s largest banks to present commitments towards green economic principles and financing the SDG’s.
