The EU has been labeled ‘insufficient’ after a survey found that the UK is the only G20 nation that is on track to meet climate commitments.
THE EUROPEAN UNION (EU) was chastised in an annual climate change report, which stated that its initiatives have been ineffective “The UK remains “the only G20 member with a domestic target that matches with a 1.5C modelled domestic pathway in 2030,” according to the report.
The annual Climate Transparency Report has been issued, revealing that the bloc’s emissions per capita are greater than the G20 average (7.9 to 7.5). It is the most thorough annual assessment of G20 countries’ climate action and transition to a net-zero emissions economy in the world. The report, which was created by specialists from 16 partner organizations representing the majority of G20 countries, informs policymakers and promotes national debates.
“The EU’s climate policies and pledges need to be substantially improved to be consistent with the 1.5°C temperature limit set by the Paris Agreement,” they said.
“The EU is not making its “due share of climate action contributions.”
It is being built to serve as a valuable reference for decision-makers and actors, as well as individuals who are involved in climate change but are not directly affected by it.
The review is based on 100 indicators for adaptation, mitigation, and finance, with the goal of highlighting good practices and shortcomings.
Most G20 members are rated “extremely insufficient” or “critically deficient” under the new assessment system.
Argentina, Australia, Brazil, Canada, China, India, Indonesia, Mexico, and South Korea are all rated “Highly Insufficient,” with only Canada’s domestic aim and India’s policies and actions receiving “Almost Sufficient” ratings.
According to the research, these G20 members must set far more ambitious domestic and international targets, policies, and actions, as well as increase climate financing commitments from affluent countries to support action in developing countries.”
Overall, Russia and Saudi Arabia are deemed “critically insufficient.” “This means that if all nations adopted this strategy, global warming would exceed 4 degrees Celsius.
The United Kingdom is the only G20 member with a domestic target in 2030 that matches a 1.5C predicted domestic route.
Britain received a “nearly sufficient” overall rating because its policies and actions are not yet aligned with the 1.5°C target, nor is it reaching its “fair share” aim or climate financing commitment.
It is a positive move in the right direction, but the UK still has a long way to go.
It comes a day after the Environment Agency issued a dire climate change warning to Britons (EA).
This is stated in the EA report. “Brinkwire News Summary.”
