In 2015, 196 countries adopted the Paris Agreement: the world’s first ever legally binding treaty on climate change having the goal to limit global warming to 1.5°C or maximum 2°C above pre-industrial levels. Eight years on, so much has happened – both in terms of climate change and climate action. How well are we progressing? It’s time to take stock.
On Friday 27 October, the European Climate Stocktake – EU and global progress towards the goals of the Paris Agreement will take place, an event to reflect on the EU and the world’s progress towards the goals of the Paris Agreement. This event aims to contribute to the global discussion in preparation for the UNFCCC’s Global Stocktake at COP28 in November.
