A new report reveals that all countries, including those that make up the G20 are nowhere near achieving the Paris aims apart from a small West African country.
With COP26 just around the corner, it seems the only country in the world to be on track to meet the Paris Agreement aims is The Gambia.
That is the verdict of a new report by Climate Action Tracker, which claims that all nations, including those that make up the G20 are nowhere near targets set to lower global temperatures.
Worldwide emissions need to be halved by 2030 to be on track for the Paris aims and the report warns that at current rates, the world would be emitting twice as much as is required for this.
The study reveals that of the 36 countries alongside the EU that were ranked, only The Gambia had made sufficient commitments aligned with this goal. Combined the countries ranked account for 80% of global emissions.
The Gambia is the only country that meets the top ranking, with Climate Action Tracker explaining that its ambitious climate targets will be implemented if financial support is made available – although it is yet to explain the level of support it will require.
