Every year, Russian non-governmental organizations, public associations and experts jointly prepare a Statement for the UNFCCC Conference of the Parties. The document contains both criticism and proposals for climate action and is addressed to the parties to the Paris Agreement, the participating countries of the UNFCCC Conference of the Parties. The second part of the Statement is addressed directly to the leadership of the Russian Federation. The statement was supported by more than 20 Russian non-governmental organizations.

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.

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.

The 26th session of the Conference of the Parties (COP) to the UN Framework Convention on Climate Change ended on Saturday, November 13. Negotiations were held in Glasgow, Scotland, and lasted longer than expected. The schedule of November 12 did not end the negotiations as originally planned. But thanks to a compromise that not everyone was happy with, the convention parties came to an agreement on the main points.

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.
