What is the six sector solution to climate change


The UN Environment Programme (UNEP) has identified six sectors that need can lead to substantial cuts to GHG emissions. They have termed this the Six Sector Solution.

These sectors are: 

  • Energy
  • Industry
  • Agriculture, Food and Waste
  • Nature based solutions
  • Transport
  • Buildings and Cities

You can check out their interactive Roadmap to a Carbon-Free Future on their website.

UNEP works across these six sectors to support the transition to a low-carbon and more resilient future.
