„While it is clearly positive that the current climate commitments bring us closer to closing the gap in relation to the necessary emission reductions, they are still not close enough to the Paris target of limiting warming to 1.5°C, the maximum acceptable warming for countries most vulnerable to climate change. Recent studies have shown that positive feedbacks in the climate system can come into play below 2°C, which could lead to out-of-control climate change. States and regions around the world are taking ambitious action on climate change, while building greater resilience and stronger economies. Further videos on other aspects of climate change are available on the IPCC multimedia site. Watch this video from the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change to learn more about the challenges and actions to mitigate the effects of climate change around the world.

The Climate Action Tracker provides an up-to-date assessment of each country`s emission reduction commitments and policies and compares them to the efforts needed to keep warming well below 2°C and track efforts to limit warming to 1.5°C. Detailed country reports and regular policy briefings provide additional insight into the current climate landscape. „Countries have not yet adapted their short-term measures to achieve the long-term goal,“ said Niklas Höhne of the NewClimate Institute, which also works on the Climate Action Tracker.
