By Frédéric OURADOU, Florine WONG, Jérôme DUVERNOY, Romain MOREL

In line with previous editions, the 2014 edition of “Key Figures on Climate” has been prepared within the context of the 19th Conference of the Parties on Climate Change (COP19) held in Warsaw from the 11th to the 22nd of November 2013. This latest version has been partially revised from the 2013 edition. In particular, data and figures extracted from volume one of the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) fifth Assessment Report, released in September 2013, have replaced the previous ones, dating from 2007. Moreover, a section has been added comparing GHG emissions results from “territorial” and “carbon footprint” approaches.

This publication, through its organization and the choice of covered topics, is aimed at informing the widest audience possible about climate change, its geophysical properties, causes and effects as well as the international policy frameworks established to limit its progression.

    Tense climate negotiations just ended in Bonn with limited progress on finance and the revised climate commitments under the Paris Agreement. During the opening ceremony of the sixtieth sessions of the subsidiary bodies (SB 60) of the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC), Simon Stiell –Executive Secretary– highlighted the need to “make serious progress on finance, the great enabler of climate action” and to aim for bolder, broader and inclusive third generation Nationally Determined Contributions (NDCs 3.0) that “can serve as blueprints to propel economies and societies forward and drive more resilience”.

    EU election time: climate policy and finance challenges under scrutiny

    This weekend, citizens across the EU head to the polls. Many expect a swing to the right, in stark contrast to the “green wave” of 2019. In Brussels, leaders are looking ahead to a five-year mandate dominated by questions of security and competitiveness.  In these turbulent times, what is the future of Europe’s flagship climate package, the Green Deal? The Green Deal and the Fit for 55 package gave us the regulatory framework – but implementation requires investment. I4CE’s flagship EU Climate Investment Deficit report shows that climate spending must double to make the 2030 target achievable.

    Carbon pricing revenues: their role in financing the climate transition

    Last month, the Executive Secretary of the UNFCCC, Simon Stiell, stressed how important this and next year are for the achievement of the Paris Agreement and called for “a quantum leap in climate finance” ahead of the Spring Meetings of the World Bank Group and International Monetary Fund. Indeed, with emissions required to peak before 2025, our window of opportunity is rapidly closing to keep 1.5°C within reach. More and better finance is urgently needed. Carbon pricing policies and their revenues are part of the tools available that can help fill the climate finance gap.
