It is considered that Greenhouse Gases (GHG) emissions in the atmosphere venting from anthropogenic sources are in part responsible for the global warming, which is the part of global climate change. While the fact of global warming itself still remains under discussion, the anthropogenic influence on climate cannot be rejected at list due to the fact that average temperature on Earth has increased by 0.7 degrees Celsius since the start of the Industrial Revolution. In order to prevent dangerous anthropogenic interference with the global climate system, lying in the growth of concentration of Greenhouse Gases in the atmosphere, first of all it is necessary to have reliable estimates of emissions and removals of GHGs. This is exactly what United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC) is aimed at compiling and publishing statistics on GHG emissions. Charts and graphs below demonstrate the countries' contribution to the global GHG emissions as well as provide background to analyze emissions by sources. Note: LULUCF refers to - Land Use, Land-Use Change and Forestry sector.

Law, Justice and Development Week 2016: Law, Climate Change and Development

On Earth Day this year, more than 175 countries signed the Paris Agreement, setting an all-time record for the number of countries signing international agreement on a single day. The Paris Agreement sets out a global action plan to avoid dangerous climate change by limiting global warming to below 2°C. Now, the world’s attention is shifting from negotiation to implementation. Implementing the Paris Agreement will require new laws, new regulations, and unprecedented levels of international legal cooperation. In November, the UN Framework Conference on Climate Change will meet again, this time in Marrakech, to flesh out the decisions taken in...

Second Environmental Protection and Sustainability Forum

The Department of Economics and the Institute for Policy Research at the University of Bath are hosting this international forum to discuss state-of-the-art academic research on international environmental agreements informed by the insights of policymakers and practitioners in the field. The forum will include academic presentations (ten academic keynote presentations and 40 academic contributed papers) and engagement with stakeholders through roundtable discussions and public lectures. The forum seeks to connect researchers with those who design and implement policy, as well as those who are affected by the policies. The first Forum was...
