Although the burning of fossil fuels generates most of the potential emissions from most reserves, emissions from production and processing operations (known as “upstream emissions”) can also be important, depending on the reserve type and technologies used.
Degraded lands—lands that have lost some degree of their natural productivity through human activity—account for over 20 percent of forest and agricultural lands in Latin America and the Caribbean.
Tenure-secure indigenous and other community forestlands are often linked to low deforestation rates, significant forest cover, and the sustainable production of timber and other forest products. New WRI research shows that securing indigenous forestland is also a low-cost, high-benefit investment and therefore makes good economic sense.
The Paris Agreement cleared the final hurdle to enter into force on October 5, 2016, after the European Union submitted its instrument of ratification to the United Nations and the two thresholds of 55 countries and over 55% of global emissions were reached.

This infographic highlights the 3 Types of Measurement, Reporting and Verification (MRV).
Nearly half of Earth’s forests have been cleared or degraded – but we have the power to change this!
The CAIT Indonesia Climate Data Explorer / Platform Interaktif untuk Data Iklim (PINDAI) presents Indonesia’s climate data and information at the provincial level, including historical and projected emissions profiles, climate commitments and development plans.
On Track from Paris maps implementation milestones of key elements of the Paris Agreement. Be sure to mind the gaps and avoid delays to stay on track for an on time arrival at the first session of the Paris Agreement (CMA1).
The top 10 emitters produce around 70 percent of global emissions in 2012, based on historical emissions data from CAIT Climate Data Explorer.
