The Climate Chance Observatory released the 2020 Edition of its Global Sector-based Synthesis Report of Climate Action and organized, for this occasion, its week of #ClimateChanceTalks in December 2020 to exchange and cross points of view of different non-state actors around the trends and progress assessed for the last 3 years.


For this 3rd edition, the Climate Chance Observatory has dedicated its analysis to the impacts of COVID-19 on the sector-based climate strategies led by local governments, businesses and civil society around the world. In the 6 emissions sectors that we are analysing – energy production, transport, buildings, industries, waste and land use – the pandemic has turned the agendas upside down and many actors involved in the action against climate change are struggling to see a clear horizon and the « new normal ».
