Tyndall Centre at COP22 Marrakesh

The Global Carbon Budget 2016 was launched on Monday 14th November at a UNFCCC Press Conference at COP22, Marrakesh, and later at a Tyndall Centre side event.



The Global Carbon Budget 2016 and its implication for meeting global warming targets was unveiled at COP22 in Marrakesh.

Following-on 2015, a year in which global CO2 emissions did not grow from industry overall published last year by the Global Carbon Budget http://globalcarbonbudget2015.org/ we wait with anticipation the publication of this year’s 2016 Global Carbon Budget on 14 November and to hear its latest implications for climate policy.

At COP22 in Marrakesh on the 14th of November 2016 at 16:45 – 18:15 in the Arabian Room we will present to UN delegates and Observers the latest analysis of the Global Carbon Budget to year 2016, including the drivers of emission reductions in countries that have already peaked, and the latest trends in China’s and other country’s emissions. We also show recent analysis of the potential for negative emissions at large scale. We discuss the feasibility of keeping global warming well below 2°C or 1.5°C in light of these latest findings.

Our side-event will be livestreamed at www.youtube.com/watch?v=I4_Y3hyO-to UCT.
