The conclusion of the 2nd Technical Dialogue (TD) of the Global Stocktake (GST) will take us past the midway point of COP27 and the GST, which concludes at COP28. In Egypt, Parties and non-Party stakeholders will have just engaged in dialogue on how the international community can go from where it is now, to the achievement of the Paris Agreement goals. What have they learned halfway through the GST process? What can be influenced next year and what do we hope to see at the conclusion of COP28?
