UN climate report

On 4 April the IPCC released the third part of the Sixth Assessment Report, Climate Change 2022: Mitigation of Climate Change. The report has been written by researchers from around the world, including Lund University, who have reviewed tens of thousands of scientific research articles.

Key questions in the subreport

  • What has been the global emissions trend in recent years and how does this trend differ between regions?
  • Which factors have affected the emissions trend?
  • What solutions – technical, economic and policy instrument-related – are currently available to reduce emissions?
  • How can different measures be combined and implemented over time to reduce emissions of carbon dioxide and other greenhouse gases to align with the world’s climate goals?
  • How do emission reduction, climate change adaptation and sustainable development relate to each other, and how can measures in one area contribute to another?
