Insights from the latest UNEP Emissions Gap Report and UNFCCC NDC Synthesis Report

This joint UNFCCC and UNEP side event features high-level opening remarks from UNEPs Executive Director and UNFCCCs Executive Secretary and a presentation of the key findings of the UNEP Emissions Gap Report 2023. This is followed by a panel discussion on what we need from the Global Stocktake, and how we can we speed up climate action and implementation this decade.
