As world leaders meet at COP26, the Global Carbon Project will reveal the latest trends in global carbon emissions and the ramifications for reaching our global climate goals.
The University of Exeter, University of East Anglia (UEA) and other research institutions have released the report which offers data and analysis on major emitters including China, USA, EU27 and India.
The report – the 16th annual Global Carbon Budget – also offers vital new information on rates of deforestation, and the continued high global use of coal, oil, and gas to fuel our economies.
The 2021 Global Carbon Budget study compares global carbon emissions for 2021 to previous years and reveals the first post-covid carbon emission levels. It has been submitted for open review to the journal Earth System Science Data so the current version is not yet peer reviewed.
