Transport makes a significant share of greenhouse gas emissions. Developed technical solutions for decarbonisation of all types of transport are existing. The timely transport decarbonisation requires urgent and strong action: reducing energy consumption and greenhouse gas emissions in transport and moving to carbon-neutral vehicles by 2050.

Regions of Russia will begin to adapt to climate change. The first territory to approve a regional climate adaptation plan was the Kursk region, followed by the Nizhny Novgorod region. Representatives of public environmental organizations believe that the need to adapt regions to climate change is becoming more urgent every day, but point to the lack of development of documents and plans.

To cope with the climate crisis, the world must achieve carbon neutrality by 2050. This requires a significant transformation of all sectors of human activity, primarily energy. Russia is well placed to meet this challenge.

Russia’s climate efforts are “insufficient” to prevent a global catastrophe - the authors of the Climate Change Efficiency Index ranking wrote. About 60 countries of the largest sources of greenhouse gas emissions do not take the measures necessary to prevent the climate crisis. Russia’s plans do not meet the goals of the Paris Agreement to reduce emissions by 2030 by 50% from 1990 and do not promise to achieve carbon neutrality by 2050.

Scientists warn that there is less and less time left to keep the world from climate catastrophe. The UN Environment Program (UNEP) has released two reports at once on the difference between what is happening in reality and the vital need of mankind. Russia Shows Unpreparedness to Abandon Fossil Fuels and the Green Energy Transition.

The just-concluded climate conference in Glasgow adopted a number of declarations regarding greenhouse gas emissions from transport. They represent slight progress in making transport climate friendlier. However, the planned measures are not enough to achieve the goals of the Paris Climate Agreement. Russia is taking certain steps to decarbonise transport, but they are also insufficient yet.

All Parties to the UN Framework Convention on Climate Change shall periodically publish national inventories of anthropogenic emissions by sources and removals by sinks of all greenhouse gases. However, some countries' climate reports are questionable. Comparison of these reports to independent scientific data shows that greenhouse gas emissions are significantly underestimated, while their absorption is overestimated.

At the UN Climate Change Conference 2021 (COP26), discussions will mainly focus on the rules for carbon markets in accordance with Article 6 of the Paris Agreement. Carbon markets are heavily criticised by many experts and civil society organisations.

The authors of the “Ranking of openness of regions to the Green Course” found out which of the regions of Russia are in tune with the green, and which stand aside or choose false solutions. Successful implementation of the right low-carbon measures can be a driver of positive change, believe civil society representatives.
