Breakthrough Agenda Report 2023:
The Breakthrough Agenda Report 2023 is an annual collaboration between the International Energy Agency (IEA), the International Renewable Energy Agency (IRENA), and the United Nations Climate Change High-Level Champions.
- Its focus is on strengthening international cooperation to accelerate the reduction of global greenhouse gas emissions.
- The report evaluates progress made since 2022 in priority areas for global collaboration.
- It offers recommendations for countries to work together in these sectors to reduce emissions over the next decade and mitigate the worst effects of climate change.
- The report acknowledges the accelerating transition to clean energy and sustainable solutions in various sectors, particularly in technologies like electric vehicles and solar PV.
- It notes that electric passenger cars are expected to represent 18% of total car sales in 2023, and clean energy technology investments are surpassing spending on fossil fuels.
- However, some high-emission and challenging-to-decarbonize sectors, including steel, hydrogen, and agriculture, are not transitioning rapidly enough, despite progress in certain aspects.
