The Race to Resilience is the UN-backed global campaign to catalyse a step-change in global ambition for climate resilience, putting people and nature first in pursuit of a resilient world where we don’t just survive climate shocks and stresses, but thrive in spite of them.
Electric cars could help to power millions of households in the coming years, simply by harnessing their battery power. The electricity in the vehicle’s battery could be plugged back into the grid, instead of being stored.
The UN’s Global Roadmap sets out milestones the world must reach to achieve net-zero emissions by 2050. It includes no new coal power plans after 2021 and $35bn annual investment in access to electricity by 2025.
This year’s global climate conference was the first to emphasize the benefits of accelerating zero-emissions transportation, and Drive Electric partners showed up in full force.
It’s Transport day at COP26 and technology is transforming how we move by land, air, and sea.
In Latin America and the Caribbean, electrifying transportation has the potential to catalyze emission reductions and investments while improving the quality of life in cities, according to the UN Environment Programme’s Movilidad eléctrica en América Latina y el Caribe (MOVE).
Fifty years ago, humans took the first full photo of Earth from space – the climate crisis means it’s time for another
“Seen side by side, these two Blue Marbles, taken half a century apart, would bring home the consequences of climate change wordlessly, instantly and globally.” Robert Poole, Professor of History, University of Central Lancashire explains why we need a fresh perspective.
It’s Gender, Science and Innovation day at week two of COP26 and transformation is accelerating across carbon intensive industries
Founder and Director of Valence Solutions, Dr Gabrielle Walker helps us imagine, in parallel with rapid reductions, how we can take CO2 out of the air at the scale needed to achieve net zero in an effective, affordable and equitable way and start reversing climate change.
Investing and nurturing in inclusivity and equity is a central strategy to building resilient societies that can navigate turbulence and change, argue Albert Norström, Robert Blasiak, Jean-Baptiste Jouffray, Kanae Tokunaga and Colette Wabnitz.
On energy day of COP26, we can announce that Race to Zero energy members have committed, in aggregate, to reach 750GW of installed renewable energy capacity by 2030. This is enough to provide power to 896 million people today.
If we are serious about achieving the dual goals of enhancing access to modern energy services and combating climate change in the long term, all stakeholders need to take decisive action. For lasting change, young people can be an important part of the solution, argues Sarah Hambly, Partnership and Communications Manager, Energy Saving Trust, co-Secretariat, Efficiency for Access.
Exposure to dangerous temperatures increased by 200% since the mid 1980s, with poor and marginalized people particularly at risk, according to a new study.
A master plan to achieve 5% zero-emission fuels in shipping by 2030 will help guide decisions, actions, and allow us to monitor the progress of the sector’s Race to Zero.
