This technical document provides the following information:
-An update of global greenhouse gas emission estimates, based on a number of different authoritative scientific sources;
-An overview of national emission levels, both current (2010) and projected (2020) consistent with current pledges and other commitments;
-An estimate of the level of global emissions consistent with the two degree target in 2020, 2030 and 2050;
-An update of the assessment of the “emissions gap” for 2020;
-A review of selected examples of the rapid progress being made in different parts of the world to implement policies already leading to substantial emission reductions and how they can be scaled up and replicated in other countries, with the view to bridging the emissions gap.
