USING THE GLOBAL STOCKTAKE TO IMPROVE NATIONAL CLIMATE POLICY AMBITION AND IMPLEMENTATION
Independent Global Stocktake (iGST) commissioned a research, conducted by Climate Analytics across seven countries, diverse in terms of climate, economy, and governance : two LDCs – Burkina Faso and Nepal; two SIDS – Jamaica and Samoa; two large developing countries – Chile and Indonesia; and one large, industrialized country – Germany. According to the research results, iGST states that "each country already has measures in place to follow UNFCCC guidance, although localized challenges influence the level of use and implementation. For example, some countries experience ongoing challenges in the use of UNFCCC guidance while others have been able to resolve this, including via capacity building supported by international actors."
As iGST concludes, the research suggests that the translation of guidance from the first Stocktake into 2025 NDCs and other national policy is likely to be constrained or supported by the same factors influencing the implementation of other UNFCCC guidance, and that this can be enhanced by addressing constraining capacity factors particular to each country – find the details in the summary of the key findings or download the whole report following the link on the right.
