    Emissions Gap report 2023

    As greenhouse gas emissions hit new highs, temperature records tumble and climate impacts intensify, the Emissions Gap Report 2023: Broken Record – Temperatures hit new highs, yet world fails to cut emissions (again) finds that the world is heading for a temperature rise far above the Paris Agreement goals unless countries deliver more than they have promised. The report is the 14th edition in a series that brings together many of the world’s top climate scientists to look at future trends in greenhouse gas emissions and provide potential solutions to the challenge of global warming.

    Adaptation Gap Report 2023

    The UNEP Adaptation Gap Report provides an annual science-based assessment of the global progress on adaptation planning, financing, and implementation. It also explores options for enhancing and advancing national and global adaptation efforts and provides an in-depth analysis of selected issues of interest.

    In addition to the update on adaptation planning and implementation, the 2023 edition provides a more in-depth finance assessment chapter and includes a thematic deep-dive chapter on loss and damage, implementation, and planning. The report also highlights key case studies in these areas.

    The Adaptation Gap Report is co-produced and co-edited by UNEP Copenhagen Climate Centre.
