CLIMATE CHANGE & LOW – CARBON ECONOMY : LAST WORD.

 

 

 

 

The goal of zero net emissions can be achieved.

To limit the impact of climate change, net greenhouse gas emissions must fall globally to zero by the end of the century.

Three policy approaches are key to meeting this goal :

1. We must strenghten carbon pricing and remove fossil fuel subsidies.

2. We must remove barriers to green investment.

3. We must align policies across the economy to leave fossil fuels behind as well as improve transparency on climate finance.

Developed countries have committed to provide $100 billion a year by 2020 and have made significant progress towards meeting this goal.

That is encouraging, but it is also clear that a sustained effort will be needed to meet the 2020 goal.
