A number of climate-related goals from COP26 are for 2030:
The Glasgow Climate Pact aims to "[reduce] global carbon dioxide emissions by 55 per cent by 2030 relative to the 2010 level". However, based on existing pledges the emissions in the year 2030 will be 14% higher than in 2010.
The 2030 Climate Target Plan of the EU aims to cut greenhouse gas emissions by at least 55% by 2030. The European Commission made proposals in July 2021 for how to achieve this goal.
The international community, including the United Nations, World Bank, and United States, have set the goal of completely eradicating extreme poverty by 2030. Noting a significant decline in extreme poverty since 1990, the World Bank has noted that the end of extreme poverty is in sight and pledged to cut it down to at most 3% of the world's population by this time.
On 7 February, the 64-bit timestamps used by NTP, which consist of a 32-bit part for seconds and a 32-bit part for fractional seconds that gives a time scale that rolls over every 232 seconds (136 years) and a theoretical resolution of 2−32 seconds (233 picoseconds), and due to the fact that the NTP uses an epoch of 1 January 1900, will cause the first roll over to occur in this year.
25 April: Easter will occur on its latest possible date. The last time this occurred was in 1943 and, after 2038, the next time it will occur will be in 2190.
26 December: A total solar eclipse will occur in the Southern Hemisphere. It will start in the southern Indian Ocean, will cross Australia and New Zealand and it will end in the southern Pacific Ocean.
