On the day of the commencement of the Paris Agreement, and on the brink of the 22nd Conference of the Parties on Climate Change (COP 22) which will be held in Marrakech from 7 to 18 November 2016, I4CE-Institute for Climate Economics and the Ministry of Ecology, Sustainable Development, Energy and the Sea are pleased to present the 2017 edition of Key Figures on climate.

This small-format publication summarizes the basics to better understand climate change challenges. Figures and graphs illustrate its causes and impacts, as well as mitigation measures. In particular, detailed statistics are provided on global greenhouse gas emissions and on observed trends in Europe and in France. This publication has been produced for both the general public and the expert who needs a summary close to hand.

This latest version of Key figures on climate was developed jointly by I4CE – Institute for Climate Economics and the French Ministry of Environment, Energy and the Sea and published as part of the new “datalab” collection of the General commission for sustainable development. It has been updated and expanded compared to previous years. The new edition includes greater emphasis on climate policies, in particular on the Paris agreement which was adopted in December 2015 at COP 21. The analysis of climate finance has been expanded.
