Policy paths for tackling climate change

Stronger actions are needed to meet mitigation goals.

  • More needs to be done to reduce greenhouse-gas emissions if the global rise in temperatures is to be kept to below 2°C.
  • Stronger action at the global, national and local levels is needed, backed by robust reviews to monitor progress and highlight shortcomings. 
  • Carbon markets need continued reforms to make them work more effectively. Investment and other policy approaches can do more to promote innovative technologies.
  • Non-energy emissions must also be increasingly targeted, for example in agriculture, forestry and waste.
