Klimawissenschaft & IPCC

Durch die Klimawissenschaft erfahren wir fortlaufend, wo Herausforderungen des Klimawandels liegen und welche Lösungsansätze Erfolgsaussichten haben. Germanwatch verfolgt die Debatte intensiv - v.a. rund um den Weltklimarat IPCC - und lässt ihre Erkenntnisse kontinuierlich in die eigenen Strategien einfließen.

The Climate Change Performance Index 2014

A comparison of the 58 top CO2 emitting nations

The Climate Change Performance Index is an instrument supposed to enhance transparency in international climate politics. On the basis of standardised criteria, the index evaluates and compares the climate protection performance of 58 countries that are, together, responsible for more than 90 percent of global energy-related CO2 emissions. >> mehr

Global Climate Risk Index 2014

Who suffers most from extreme weather events? Weather-related loss events in 2012 and 1993 to 2012

The Global Climate Risk Index 2014 analyses to what extent countries have been affected by the impacts of weather-related loss events (storms, floods, heat waves etc.). The most recent data available—from 2012 and 1993–2012—were taken into account. The countries affected most in 2012 were Haiti, the Philippines and Pakistan. For the period from 1993 to 2012 Honduras, Myanmar and Haiti rank highest. >> mehr

Climate Change Performance Index released at UN-climate summit

"Coalition of the responsible" needed to prevent dangerous climate change

The new edition of the Climate Change Performance Index (CCPI) was released by Germanwatch and CAN-Europe in Durban at the UN climate talks today. Again, none of the 58 highest-emitting countries has done enough to prevent dangerous climate change, leaving ranks one to three open. The next ranks went to three European countries, Sweden, UK and Germany. The countries ranked worst this year are Saudi Arabia, Iran and Kazakhstan. Overall, the ranking was influenced by the worldwide economic crisis. This resulted in higher growth of emissions in emerging economies compared to industrial countries. >> mehr
