Submission to the Global Stocktake (GST) through the NDC Aspects project

Article - September 13, 2022

Last week together with our partners from NDC ASPECTS we submitted fresh reseach findings to the second information collection window of the UNFCCC Global Stocktake.

Our input is meant to help countries make their NDCs more robust ahead of the 2023 global assessment so as to achieve the 1.5°C goal of the Paris Agreement.

We argue that a sectoral perspective needs to prevail, where:

  • key challenges & opportunities are identified for different sectors at national levels and then linked to international enablers;
  • key scientific benchmarks that make the 1.5°C possible are endorsed for power, transport, industry, AFOLU, and buildings;
  • enhanced governance solutions tailored to the needs and opportunities of each sector are adopted, also through the alignment of sectoral institutions (e.g., ICAO) with the Paris Agreement’s goals.
