Senegal as an LNG Exporter? Stranded asset risks in the transition
Publication date 18 Dec 2023

Despite recent spikes in the global price of LNG, Senegal's fossil fuel hopes may be dashed with global trends. Scaled up renewable energy deployment, and electrification of gas end uses are increasingly likely to reduce global LNG demand. Before going all in on offshore oil and gas development, it is important that Senegal considers transition risks, its relative competitiveness, and what alternatives the Just Energy Transition Partnership may offer.

Climate Action Tracker Briefing: COP28 initiatives will only reduce emissions if followed through
Publication date 09 Dec 2023

We estimate that of the total emissions savings that could be achieved by the pledges, around a quarter is already included in government NDCs, around a quarter is additional and achievable, and around half is unlikely to be achieved without further action to improve the initiatives.

Publication date 15 Nov 2023

Full implementation of existing policies and actions could result in 2030 emissions below 2019. Out of the 25 countries analysed, 13 are on track to meet their current NDCs.

State of Climate Action 2023
Publication date 14 Nov 2023

The State of Climate Action 2023 provides the world’s most comprehensive roadmap of how to close the gap in climate action across sectors to limit global warming to 1.5°C. It finds that recent progress toward 1.5°C-aligned targets isn’t happening at the pace and scale necessary and highlights where action must urgently accelerate this decade to reduce greenhouse gas emissions, scale up carbon removal and increase climate finance.

Sequencing Climate Change Mitigation Targets and Policies
Publication date 01 Nov 2023

This study projected greenhouse gas emissions to evaluate the progress of 25 countries towards their original and updated NDCs. It found that almost one-quarter of the countries submitted more ambitious, updated NDCs without adopting sufficient policies to meet their original targets. Additionally, in most countries, updated NDCs lead to emissions above current policies. The findings also suggest that these patterns are influenced by national constraints, especially reliance on fossil fuels. Appropriate sequencing of ambition raising and policy adoption is urgently needed to translate the Paris Agreement into action.
