In a new report, the IPCC said the world's temperatures will likely reach 1.5°C between 2030 and 2052 at the current rate of warming.

Speaking highly of the IPCC and Lee's contribution towards strengthening global climate change response, Deputy PM Dung said that the IPCC's recommendations have been turned into definitive actions to fight climate change in Vietnam.

Addressing the dialogue, Deputy Minister of MONRE Le Cong Thanh said that as one of the countries heavily impacted by climate change, Vietnam has actively implemented global commitments and made efforts to cope with climate change.

"Scientists have been warning us for years that we can expect to see more extreme weather with climate change".

McCormack said the government won't change policy just because somebody might suggest that some sort of report is the way we need to follow and everything that we should do.

A total of 15 countries including the United Kingdom, Germany, France and Sweden called for an increase of the EU's 2030 climate target at the meeting.

"The worldwide community must emerge with critically important implementation guidelines for operationalizing the Paris Agreement", he said, adding that all countries now needed to "heed the counsel of the world's top scientists: raise ambition, rapidly strengthen their national climate action plans, and urgently accelerate implementation of the Paris Agreement".

"Limiting global warming to 1.5°C compared with 2°C would reduce challenging impacts on ecosystems, human health and well-being, making it easier to achieve the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs)", said Priyardarshi Shukla, Co-Chair of IPCC Working Group III, referring to the 17 Goals adopted by UN Member States three years ago to protect the planet and ensure that all people enjoy peace and prosperity by 2030.

Today, the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change released a report detailing progress and pathways to liming global warming to 1.5 degrees Celsius.

He said that the European Union needs to increase its 2030 greenhouse gas emissions target to 45 per cent "to be in line with the IPCC's recommendations on 1.5°C pathways". At high tide, the sea level rises above these gates, so the canals can only be drained at low-tide but this may be impacted by climate change.

Wiesen also congratulated Vietnam on pioneering the update of its NDC through a dynamic and participatory process, where all ministries have taken an active role in defining their targets and identifying their priorities and actions. Clearly, in a country like The Bahamas with its abundant sunshine and offshore winds we should do all we can to develop our local renewable energy potential.

Besides, the country also has a large potential for energy saving of up to 7.0% relative to the business-as-usual, through to year 2035.

For Canada, that means emissions would need to fall to a maximum of 385 million tonnes a year.
