The report provides comprehensive, step-by-step guidance for policymakers to design mandatory greenhouse gas reporting programs.
At least 40 countries and several sub-national regions have implemented greenhouse gas reporting programs. A new report provides step-by-step guidance on how policymakers can design them effectively.
The Obama administration committed to reduce U.S. emissions 26-28 percent below 2005 levels by 2025. A new WRI study reveals how to achieve that target—and go even further—through existing federal policies and state action.
Under Russia's new post-2020 climate change commitment, the country could actually increase its emissions 40-50 percent above current levels by 2030.
WRI evaluated the climate-water implications of more than 20 generation technologies in China, and found several win-win solutions for its power sector to reduce water impacts and emissions.
China’s power sector is its largest source of greenhouse gas emissions and also its biggest industrial water user.
This issue brief includes a Water–Climate Impacts Bubble Chart to help decision-makers better understand the trade-offs between water use, climate impacts, and capital...
Hydrofluorocarbons (HFCs), potent greenhouse gases commonly used as refrigerants, are a small but rapidly growing component of U.S. greenhouse gas emissions. Fortunately, climate-friendly substitutes exist, and some of these alternatives can even create net savings for consumers.
Insights from Ten Countries
This working paper provides a synthesis of country experiences with data management systems for national GHG inventories, based on survey responses from both Annex I and non-Annex I Parties.
Potential emissions of oil and gas companies’ fossil fuel reserves could make or break whether the world stays within its "carbon budget."
