UNFCCC: "Redrawing the energy-climate map” – Statement by UNFCCC Executive Secretary Christiana Figueres

„The IEA report comes at a crucial moment for the UN Climate Change negotiations and for global efforts to address climate change at all levels. Once again we are reminded that there is a gap between current efforts and the engagement necessary to keep the world below a two degrees Celsius temperature rise. Once again we are reminded that the gap can be closed this decade, using proven technologies and known policies, and without harming economic growth in any region of the world. By seizing the opportunities described in the report, businesses and governments at all levels can catalyze limate action and open the political space for a universal climate agreement.“
