There are six sets of low-cost actions nations could take during the 2020s to deliver the Paris agreement and limit global warming to 1.5°C, according to a report from the Energy Transitions Commission (ETC), a UK-based thinktank.

An additional 17-20Gt of CO2 reductions and a 40pc reduction in methane emissions are needed to achieve that objective, according to the report titled Keeping 1.5°C Alive: Closing the Gap in the 2020s. These could be achieved if recommendations across six areas are implemented: cutting methane e
