    Third Ministerial Council Roundtable: Making the Green Recovery Work for Jobs, Income and Growth

    While emissions are expected to drop by around 8% this year due to lockdown measures, the IPCC says that they would need to continue to drop at around the same rate every year from now until 2030 in order to stand the best chance of limiting warming to 1.5 degrees Celsius. This gives you an idea of the sheer and urgent challenge we face.
