The first Global Stocktake will conclude at COP28. Beyond reflecting on what has and hasn’t worked so far, it offers a key opportunity to provide solution-oriented, actionable guidance for countries on how to close the yawning ambition and implementation gaps. Fauna & Flora highlights five priority areas for focus at COP28, based on the best available science and evidence. Our aim is to drive discussion, debate and – most importantly – action that delivers for climate, nature and people.
This report highlights the five key areas we would like to see progress in, and offers a way forward for each:
- Driving rapid, deep emissions cuts and phasing out fossil fuels and harmful subsidies
- Ensuring high-integrity nature-based solutions
- Prioritising the protection of nature’s remaining carbon sinks
- Accelerating adaptation action with communities and nature at its core
- Scaling up and directing finance to locally-led approaches
