WMO consolidation of 5 major temperature datasets:

🌡️2020 one of the 3 warmest years on record, rivalled 2016 for the top spot
2011-2020 warmest decade
Warmest 6 years all since 2015

Cooling #LaNiña put a brake on the heat only at very end of the year.

"Progress is urgently needed. Only 10 months remain until COP26. Our work up to that point will be instrumental for all countries to raise adaptation ambition" - @PEspinosaC at launch of @UNEP #AdaptationReport

"Like many other issues in the climate change arena, however, the issue of finance remains a significant obstacle. The report shows that despite an increase in the finance available for adaptation, the adaptation finance gap is not yet closing" - @PEspinosaC #AdaptationReport

.@PEspinosaC at launch of @UNEP #AdaptationReport: "It is encouraging to note that nations are working hard to develop climate change adaptation plans. 72 per cent of all signatories to the Paris Agreement have adopted at least one national-level adaptation planning instrument."

.@PEspinosaC at #ReutersNext interview: "We have received only around 75 NDCs (national climate action plans under the Paris Agreement) out of around 200. This shows that the climate agenda is presently not at the level of priority it needs to be."
