NDC Implementation: Latest Climate Science and Regional Perspectives on Turning the GST into Action

Side event organized by the Independent Global Stocktake (iGST)

June 7 | 11:45AM CEST

Bonn Room, World Conference Center Bonn (WCCB)

Following the conclusion of the first Global Stocktake in December last year, understanding its outcomes from local and regional perspectives is critical in driving climate ambition during the Nationally Determined Contributions (NDC) updating period. This side event aims to highlight actionable pathways for climate action aligned with the 1.5C target, and discuss strategies for contextualizing and translating outcomes of the GST1 into regional action.
