From the Ground Up Ep. 297: The Adaptation Gap and the Production Gap | 2023.11.15

Ep. 297

Lauren and Mark talk through two recent United Nations reports.

Since the 2015 Paris agreement, the UN Environment Programme has been publishing annually the Emissions Gap Report: an annual assessment of progress towards emissions reduction and comparison of policies with what is needed to achieve the Paris goals.

For the last few years that report has been complemented by two other reports, which are the subject of this episode.

The Adaptation Gap Report looks at the shortfall in financial support for people worldwide who need funds to adapt to the existing and future impacts of climate change on their lives, their homelands and their livelihoods.

The Production Gap Report addresses the plans for fossil fuel extraction and compares the numbers to the levels consistent with the Paris goals.
