The time for meeting the objectives of the Paris Agreement is running out. This year's annual UNEP emissions gap report found that while global emissions need to be roughly halved by 2030 to maintain a good chance of keeping average global temperature increase at 1.5 degrees Celsius, current Nationally Determined Contributions (NDCs) submitted up to the start of the Glasgow conference will deliver only a reduction of about 7 per cent.
