Are we on track to meet climate targets by 2030 and 2050?

A report from WRI and Climate Works Foundation finds that in all but a couple of cases, progress is happening far too slowly - in some cases, we're moving entirely in the wrong direction.  

This article identifies significant mitigation opportunities across the power, buildings, industry, transport, forests and agriculture sectors that will be needed to meet global GHG emissions targets.

A rapid transition to a zero-carbon future is achievable - but only if properly nurtured with the right policy, incentives, finance and other support.
