NewClimate, as part of the Climate Action Tracker, contributed to the State of Climate Action 2021 report.
The report identifies 40 indicators across key sectors that must transform to address the climate crisis, and assesses how current trends will impact how much work remains to be done by 2030 and 2050 to deliver a zero-carbon world in time. It also outlines the required shifts in supportive policies, innovations, strong institutions, leadership and social norms to unlock change.
The work also analyses where progress has been more dynamic than previously expected, for example the exponential growth of renewable energy of electric vehicle sales in some countries. The report stresses the relevance of decision making in triggering such positive dynamics for the transition to Paris-compatible pathways.
