C2ES – Designing a Meaningful Global Stocktake (GST)
A lynchpin of enhanced ambition under the Paris Agreement, the Global Stocktake (GST) is the first official checkpoint to assess Parties’ collective progress towards achieving the purpose of the Agreement and its long-term goals. Translating the GST into increased ambition will mark a critical test for Paris Agreement’s effectiveness.
C2ES is working closely with the Environmental Defense Fund (EDF) to examine the GST process to offer insights on how the GST can deliver meaningful outcomes and recommendations to improve the process. This webinar will spotlight the first of a series of papers on the Global Stocktake, exploring how the UNFCCC can address emerging gaps and challenges on equity and implementation, as well as to deliver a path for increased ambition.
