The world’s first Global Stocktake at COP28 invites governments, civil society organizations and the private sector to evaluate our collective response to the climate crisis — and, in doing so, this process provides a unique moment for a major course correction. If successful, the Global Stocktake can serve as a powerful global accelerator, spurring leaders across sectors and around the world to work together to drive the transformational changes now needed to secure a net-zero, climate-resilient future for all.

Join Systems Change Lab partners, Climate Analytics, NewClimate Institute, and World Resources Institute, as well as NDC ASPECTS project partners, Vrije Universiteit Brussel and Wuppertal Institute, on June 5th at 11:45 am CEST for a discussion with leading experts on sectoral insights for the Global Stocktake. Focusing specifically on efforts to limit warming to 1.5°C, speakers will examine the catalytic role of international cooperation, highlight examples of recent progress made in accelerating systemwide transformations, and explore immediate actions that can help deliver deep emission cuts at the pace and scale needed this decade.
