Climate Action edition 2023: Taking stock
COP28 will be responding to the first Global Stocktake – a comprehensive assessment of our progress towards the goals of the Paris Agreement. That progress is too slow and, as our prospects of keeping within the 1.5°C target slip away, the emphasis shifts from mitigation to adaptation. With it, the focus moves to the Global South, which will suffer the worst impacts and lacks the resources to adapt. Climate justice and ‘loss and damage’ will take center stage.
