2019-10-03

The world's top organizations on climate change research, including the World Meteorological Organization (WMO), the United Nations Environment Programme (UNEP), and the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) have jointly released a report entitled “United in Science - High-level synthesis report of latest climate science information”, in line with the UN Climate Change Summit held in New York on September 23, 2019. The report provides an in-depth analysis of the current situation which is increasingly diverging from the agreement on global warming countermeasures. It also provides details on the current trends in climate change, greenhouse gas emissions, atmospheric concentrations of greenhouse gases, and the need for socio-economic transformation in land use and the energy sector in order to avoid the risks of irreparable global temperature increase in the future. The report also considers tools that can contribute to both climate change mitigation and adaptation.
