Unprecedented mechanism for climate governance within the scope of the Climate Convention is the subject of a panel moderated by Marina Marçal, from iCS, to monitor and increase the ambitions of the NDC
The 4th edition of the Brazilian Climate Change Conference began on May 20 with online sessions. One of the panels had the objective to disseminate awareness and popularize the debate in Brazil about the Global Stocktake (GST), which is an unprecedented mechanism for climate governance within the scope of the Climate Convention. The GST is a system for monitoring and accompanying the actions of governments, municipalities, civil society, the private sector and other actors in the implementation and strengthening of the Nationally Determined Contributions (NDC) of the countries. The debate was moderated by Marina Marçal, coordinator of the Climate Policy portfolio at iCS.
Marina Marçal explains that the “Paris Agreement establishes the Global Stocktake as a formal process to take a periodic stock of the collective progress towards its long-term goals with an evaluation every five years as part of the process to increase the ambition in climate commitments. The reduction, the lack of transparency and clarity can compromise potential financial support from other countries.”
Participants in this debate were: Ana Terra (TUMI E-bus Manager at C40 Cities); Júlia Mello Neiva (Coordinator of the Program of Development and Socioenvironmental Rights at Conectas Human Rights); Michelle Ferreti (Director of the Alziras Institute); Rebeca Lima (Executive director of CDP Latin America); Rodrigo Corradi (Assistant executive secretary of ICLEI South America); Samanta Della Bella (Superintendent of Sustainability and Climate of Pernambuco); and William Wills (Technical director at the Brazilian Climate Center).
