IRENA’s Global Renewables Outlook: Energy Transformation 2050

“Global Renewables Outlook: Energy Transformation 2050”, formerly known as “Global Energy Transformation: a roadmap to 2050”, was published by the International Renewable Energy Agency (IRENA) in April 2020. This comprehensive analysis outlines the investments and technologies needed to decarbonize the energy system in line with the Paris Agreement. It also explores deeper decarbonization options for the hardest sectors, aiming to eventually cut CO2 emissions to zero.

World Economic Forum’s Global Risk Report 2020

The Global Risk Report 2020 published by the World Economic Forum indicate that the top five global risks in terms of likelihood are all environmental including extreme weather events (floods, storms etc.), failure of climate change mitigation and adaptation, human-made environmental damage and disasters (oil spills, radioactive contamination etc.), major natural disasters (earthquake, tsunami, volcanic eruption, geomagnetic storms etc.), and major biodiversity loss and ecosystem collapse. The report also emphasized the need for integrated solutions to the world’s most pressing challenges, policymakers to balance economic growth with the protection of the earth, and the private sector to refer to scientific knowledge to avoid catastrophic losses in the future.

The FAO State of Food and Agriculture 2019 focuses on food loss and food waste

The United Nations Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO) released the 2019 edition of the State of Food and Agriculture (SOFA 2019). SOFA is a major publication of the FAO which aims to provide the general public with a well-balanced and scientific assessment of important issues in the field of food and agriculture. This new edition addresses the issue of food loss and food waste, providing new estimates as Food Loss Index (FLI) and Food Waste Index (FWI), a comprehensive analysis of the critical loss points in the global food supply chain, and appropriate measures that can be undertaken by policy makers for effective reduction.
