Temporary Reduction in daily global CO2 emissions during the COVID-19 forced confinement. To Sustain the GHG reduction requires structural change in our economy especially in the sectors of Power (44.3%), Industry (22.4%) and Surface Transport (20.6%) accounting for 85% of the total reduction in global emissions.

Government action and economic incentives after the pandemic are likely to influence global carbon emissions for decades to come, according to this new peer-reviewed research and analysis published in Nature Climate Change on 19 May 2020.
