COP24 Briefing on key discussion items on the Paris Rulebook

Cur­rent Nation­al­ly Deter­mined Con­tri­bu­tions (NDC) to the Paris Agree­ment, when added up, are a long way off from get­ting even close to meet­ing the agreed tar­get of hold­ing glob­al tem­per­a­tures well below 2°C above pre-indus­tri­al lev­els. The Paris Agree­ment has cre­at­ed a unique plat­form to build polit­i­cal com­mit­ment but it falls short on mobi­liz­ing social and eco­nom­ic oppor­tu­ni­ties (co-ben­e­fits) of ambi­tious and time­ly cli­mate action. The COP24 deci­sions relat­ed to the Paris Rule­book will deter­mine to what extent social and eco­nom­ic co-ben­e­fits can be mobi­lized to effec­tive­ly imple­ment the Paris Agree­ment and to facil­i­tate a just tran­si­tion.

This brief­ing con­tains key rec­om­men­da­tions to acti­vate the co-ben­e­fits in the COP24 deci­sions on the Paris rule­book.
