To keep the window open to limit global warming to 1.5 C, countries need to accelerate transformation towards a net-zero emissions future across all sectors at a far faster pace than recent trends, according to this report from World Resources Institute and ClimateWorks Foundation, with input from Climate Action Tracker.

The World Resources Report is WRI's flagship publication. Started in 1986, World Resources Reports are published at regular intervals to provide in-depth analyses of issues ranging from human health and the environment to a sustainable food future. Our current edition, Towards a More Equal City, focuses on helping rapidly urbanizing regions alter their development trajectories as demand for infrastructure and services grows.
