For the world to meet the temperature goals of the Paris Agreement, #RenewableEnergy needs to grow at least 4 times faster than today. Stay tuned for new developments during @IRENA's 11th Assembly 18 - 21 January, with the participation of @PEspinosaC #IRENA11A
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.
"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."
Today I started a comprehensive round of consultations with chairs of the @UNFCCC negotiating groups 🌍
Great to hear from the African Group of Negotiators, Umbrella Group & Environmental Integrity Group on their priorities for #COP26 and on how we can work together this year
.@PEspinosaC: "Climate finance is essential to rebuild trust. Those who have the most responsibility and the possibilities to contribute to climate action, so those in the developed world, must realize it is in their interest to help developing countries" #ReutersNext
.@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."
