UN Environment Launch 2018 Emissions Gap Report

The UN Environment's 2018 Emissions Gap Report has been launched and takes a close look at the pledges that countries have made to reduce their emissions.

The annual report presents an assessment of current national mitigation efforts and the ambitions countries have presented in their Nationally Determined Contributions, which form the foundation of the Paris Agreement.

The report features new information on the ‘emissions gap’, it takes into account the latest scientific information, including the IPCC Special Report on 1.5°C.

Every year, the report also features ways to bridge the still existing emissions gap. This year these topics are fiscal policy, the role of innovation, the role of non-state and subnational action and ways to increase the ambition of the Nationally Determined Contributions.
