NDC Aspects prepared a policy brief with key recommendations on how to maximize the effectiveness of the first Global Stocktake (GST) of the Paris Agreement due to start at COP26.
- Focus on sectors. Since the collective nature of the GST does not allow for a Party-by-Party discussion, a sectoral approach will reveal collective sectoral ambition gaps, highlight additional mitigation potential and promote knowledge on how to tap this potential.
- Use guiding questions. These are meant to form the basis of the GST for implementing the sectoral approach.
- Guarantee equitable access. Make sure government delegations from developing countries have equitable access to the procedings and include non-Party stakeholders’ inputs and perspectives as a means to ensuring procedural fairness, transparency and accountability.
- Issue a COP decision/declaration. GST cycles should culminate in a high-level event and an associated COP decision / declaration with avaialble options, best proctices and recommendations for sectoral decarbonisation targets and roadmaps.
