The eighth edition of UN Environment’s Emissions Gap report, released ahead of the UN Climate Change Conference in Bonn, finds that national pledges only bring a third of the reduction in emissions required by 2030 to meet climate targets, with private sector and sub-national action not increasing at a rate that would help close this worrying gap.
The United Nations Development Programme (UNDP) is grateful for the specific pledges made by Norway, India, Luxembourg, Russian Federation, Thailand, Kuwait, Bangladesh, United Arab Emirates, Singapore, Estonia, Indonesia, Lao People's Democratic Republic, Mongolia, Myanmar and Albania to regular resources totaling $77 million.
