Bridging the Gap: 3CSEP director participates in new report

Bridging the Gap report

The United Nations Environment Programme (UNEP) will prepare a follow up publication to “The Emissions Gap Report.” Publication of the report preceded the climate change talks in Cancun, Mexico in 2010. The first report assessed the collective pledges of countries to keep global temperature below a 2 degree Celsius rise. In the new edition of the report, Professor Diana Urge-Vorsatz will be a co-author on the chapter focused on climate change mitigation options. Work has already begun on this new chapter. In June 2011, Professor Urge-Vorsatz attended the Bonn Climate Change Conference, organized by the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change, and began work with fellow lead authors.
