This study applied the Climate Policy Implementation Tracking Framework (Barua, Fransen, and Wood 2014), called the Tracking Framework, also developed by the World Resources Institute, which provides detailed guidance on tracking indicators in the policy implementation process.
Handbook offers U.S. policymakers comprehensive guidance on options and key elements of carbon pricing
Some reports say Japan will set a target to reduce its greenhouse gases 20 percent below 2013 levels by 2030. Research shows that the country can go much further, achieving reductions of 31-37 percent by 2030.
米国人が使う「now you’re talking（そうだね）」というあいづちの裏には、「ようやく本気を出したね」という意味が込められている。気候変動対策に本腰を入れるとは、言葉による約束を実行に移すということであり、それも思い切った策でなければならない。
China, the world’s largest emitter, is making strides to reduce its emissions by pricing carbon, investing in renewables and expanding energy efficiency.
It would take a Mexico-sized area of farm land to grow the amount of food people waste every year.
Under Russia's new post-2020 climate change commitment, the country could actually increase its emissions 40-50 percent above current levels by 2030.
In the lead-up to this year’s climate summit in Paris, countries are proposing climate actions that will take effect after 2020.
But what about the pre-2020 pledges? The new CAIT Pre-2020 Pledges Map showcases interactive data from 15 developed and 58 developing countries, providing an understanding of what countries have committed to in the short term, and what can be built upon in their post-2020 plans.
Potential emissions of oil and gas companies’ fossil fuel reserves could make or break whether the world stays within its "carbon budget."
Approximately 40 percent of the world’s greenhouse gas emissions come from energy generation, and about half of that energy is consumed by industrial or commercial users.
If a fifth of the world’s emissions come from the energy that keeps the world’s businesses running, how does business report those emissions?
The number of SUV models getting at least 25 miles per gallon (mpg) has doubled in the last five years, while the number of cars achieving at least 40 mpg has increased sevenfold. Research shows that new policies can drive efficient vehicle use even further, lowering emissions and saving consumers money.
