The tenth edition of the United Nations Environment Programme (UNEP) Emissions Gap Report provides the latest assessment of scientific studies on current and estimated future greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions and compares these with the emission levels bearable for the world to progress on a least-cost pathway to achieve the goals of the Paris Agreement. This Report wants to fill in the gap between where we are now in terms of emissions, and where we need to be. Reflecting on the ten-year anniversary, a summary report, entitled Lessons from a decade of emissions gap assessments, was published in September for the Secretary General’s Climate Action Summit.
