Special issue on global mitigation, stocktaking and NDC updating

Published 22 June, 2022


More than 130 countries are committed to the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC) to be carbon neutral by around the middle of the century. At the COP26 summit in 2021, many countries revised their nationally determined contributions (NDCs). In order to monitor the progress of CO2 and other greenhouse gas (GHG) mitigation, the global stocktaking process is accelerating under UNFCCC. In the meantime, the Sixth Assessment Report of Working Group III, recently published by the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC), presented recent research on mitigation pathways focusing on the Paris Agreement Target: “Holding the increase in the global average temperature to well below 2 ℃ above pre-industrial level, and pursuing effort to limit the temperature increase to 1.5 ℃ above pre-industrial levels”. New findings from IPCC reports show the urgency for global GHG mitigations in coming decades.
