Convenings on a Solutions-Oriented Approach to the GST

The Center for Climate and Energy Solutions (C2ES) is leading a project aimed at achieving an ambitious and environmentally effective outcome from the Global Stocktake (GST) at COP28 that:

  • leverages COP28 to drive needed real-world action
  • assists countries to implement existing climate commitments
  • facilitates the raising the ambition of their next round of commitments
  • strengthens and energizes international cooperation.

Ahead of the spring UN climate conference in Bonn, C2ES published a technical paper drawing on: the GST technical dialogue process, a broad spectrum of opportunities to address the challenges of climate change, as well as a wealth of work on pathways and agendas for 2030 and 2050 climate action. To effectively achieve its mandate, the GST should, in its outcomes, focus on those opportunities that will have the best chance of resulting in a high positive impact. Applying key criteria, this paper identifies a range of suggested signals and opportunities to respond to them that have the potential for accelerating climate action and support.

Hosted by C2ES, EDF, and Transforma, in coordination with the main authors of the paper, please join us to discuss how the GST can help deliver a meaningful and effective response to the challenges of climate change across mitigation, adaptation and loss & damage (L&D), and means of implementation.
