The result is the 10 New Insights in Climate Science, delivered as two products: a peer-reviewed scientific article and this policy report, which provides synthesis for policymakers and society at large.

The scientific evidence underpinning this year’s report was published between January 2022–June 2023. For policymakers responding to the urgent challenge of the climate crisis, the 10 New Insights in Climate Science 2023/2024 offers credible guidance through 2024 and beyond.

SEI Asia’s Ploy Achakulwisut contributed to Insight 2, “A rapid and managed fossil fuel phase-out is required to stay within the Paris Agreement target range”:

The fast-shrinking carbon budget means that governments and the private sector must stop enabling new fossil fuel projects, accelerate the early retirement of existing infrastructure, and rapidly increase the pace of renewable energy deployment. High-income countries must lead the transition and provide support for low-income countries. All countries should pursue an equitable and just transition, minimising socioeconomic impacts on the most vulnerable segments of the population.

Åsa Persson, SEI’s Research Director, served on the editorial board for this year’s 10 new insights in climate science.
