World is “Nowhere Close” to curbing the climate emergency, says UN Climate Report

The United Nations released a new report which measured the progress of national action plans against the effect of the unfolding climate emergency. The report revealed that while some countries are increasing efforts to reduce their greenhouse gas contribution, the overall impact falls short of what the planet needs.

The interim report was produced by the (UNFCCC) UN Framework Convention on Climate Change to look at the progress on national climate action plans of 75 countries that represent 30% of the global emission.

Many countries did not submit their revised plans and among these are the world’s top three carbon polluters: the United States,China and India.

Patricia Espinosa, UNFCCC Executive Secretary, consider this report a snapshot rather than the full picture of the road ahead and urges all remaining countries to submit their Nationally Determined Contributions so that a new and more detailed report can be released ahead of the 26th session of Conference of its Parties (COP26) which will take place this November in Glasgow.
