Date: December 13, 2018

CarbonCare InnoLab from Hong Kong has announced the release of Paris Watch: Hong Kong Climate Action Report at the COP24 climate talks in Katowice, Poland. The report finds that Hong Kong is not on target if its greenhouse gas emission reductions are to contribute Hong Kong’s fair share to the achievement of the Paris Agreement targets on keeping global temperatures down.
Delegates to the COP climate talks continue to work for agreement on the creation of a rulebook to implement the Paris Agreement. There is little disagreement, however, about the importance of cities in leading climate action. Action by cities has been raised many times throughout the last ten days of negotiations and meetings.
