A G20 Stocktake on Climate Action
At the moment, we are far away from taking the action needed to achieve these three goals. Current nationally determined contributions (NDCs) would lead to a global temperature increase of around 3.2°C. The Global Stocktake together with the NDCs are the key elements of the Paris Agreement aimed at ratcheting up the ambition of national climate actions. Countries need to submit their revised NDCs
by 2020. Those that have not yet submitted an NDC with a 2025/30 target must provide a new NDC.
All other countries are invited to strengthen their NDCs. Informed by the Intergovernmental Panel on
Climate Change (IPCC) 1.5°C Special Report and the Talanoa Dialogue in 2018, it is clear that these next
NDCs must increase the level of ambition through much stronger 2030 targets.
The cycle of assessing collective progress and increasing the ambition of national climate actions will then continue with the first five-yearly Global Stocktake in 2023, to inform the submission of new and strengthened NDCs by 2025.
