UN Emissions Gap Report 2018
The United Nations has commissioned us to design the cover for the 2018 Emissions Gap Report.
The United Nations has invited us to design the cover for the 2018 Emissions Gap Report. The illustration is based on the Emissions Gap graph, the main graph in the report. It represents the necessary reduction of CO2 emissions that humanity must achieve to tackle the goals of the Paris Climate Agreement of 2015.
The goal of the Paris Agreement on climate change, as agreed at the Conference of the Parties in 2015, is to keep global temperature rise this century to well below 2 degrees Celsius above pre-industrial levels. It also calls for efforts to limit the temperature increase even further to 1.5 degrees Celsius.
The annual UN Environment Emissions Gap Report presents an assessment of current national mitigation efforts and the ambitions countries have presented in their Nationally Determined Contributions, which form the foundation of the Paris Agreement.
