Durch die Klimawissenschaft erfahren wir fortlaufend, wo Herausforderungen des Klimawandels liegen und welche Lösungsansätze Erfolgsaussichten haben. Germanwatch verfolgt die Debatte intensiv - v.a. rund um den Weltklimarat IPCC - und lässt ihre Erkenntnisse kontinuierlich in die eigenen Strategien einfließen.

Cover Climate Transparency Report 2020
The "Climate Transparency Report" 2020 reviews the climate policy of the G20 members

The G20 countries are responsible for around 75% of global greenhouse gas emissions. Last year, energy-related CO2 emissions in the G20 fell slightly for the first time, by 0.1% after a rise of 1.9% in 2018, without an economic crisis as a trigger. The key to these initial successes is the continuing boom in renewable energies.

The outcome of the World Climate Conference (COP25) in Madrid, held 2 to 15 December 2019, clearly shows the strengths and weaknesses of the Paris Agreement. It shows that the days of cosmetic climate policy are over, but also that the coordinated resistance of the brakemen is growing as a result.

Under the motto "Time to act", the 25th Conference of the Parties (COP25) to the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC) will take place from 2 to 13 December 2019 in Madrid, Spain, under Chile's presidency. After all, it is finally time for action in the logic of the UN negotiations.

Cover: Brown to Green Report 2019
The Brown to Green Report 2019 takes stock of the G20 countries’ climate action.

The G20 countries are responsible for around 80 % of global greenhouse gas emissions, and 85 % of global GDP. In the G20 countries, around 70 % of climate impacts could be avoided by limiting global warming to 1.5°C instead of 3°C. The G20 have a political responsibility as well as economic interest and capability to move the world towards a 1.5°C compatible pathway.

Review of climate action finds G20 not on track to meet Paris goals, but positive trends in some countries

Carbon emissions from the world’s 20 biggest economies are rising. None of the G20 countries have plans that will put them on track to limit global warming to 1.5°C, despite the fact that most are technically capable and have economic incentives. To keep the Paris Agreement’s 1.5°C goal within reach, G20 countries will have to increase their 2030 emission targets by 2020 and significantly scale up mitigation, adaptation and finance over the next decade.
