Two weeks before the G20 Summit in Rome and COP26 in Glasgow, Climate Transparency launched the 2021 edition of its yearly comprehensive overview of G20 climate action – the Climate Transparency Report. On this occasion, we organised on 14 October 2021 the international online launch event. During the event the authors of the report presented key findings of G20 climate action towards net-zero as well as regional and political perspectives.

Developed by experts from 16 partner organisations from the majority of the G20 countries, the report informs policy makers and stimulates national debates. Thanks to comparable and concise information presented in a visually attractive form, the Climate Transparency Report serves as a useful reference for decision makers and actors, and also for those central for climate for whom climate is not central.
