Independent Global Stocktake Southeast Asia Hub Navigating the Outcomes of the First Global Stocktake in Southeast Asia

April 25, 2024 2:00 p.m. (PHT)
April 25, 2024 3:00 p.m. (JST)

The first Global Stocktake (GST1) held at COP28 in Abu Dhabi last December marked a significant milestone in global climate action. Following this event, countries are expected to update their nationally determined contributions (NDCs) by 2025, reflecting the outcomes of GST1. This period of 2024-2025 is crucial for enhancing climate ambitions. However, understanding how these outcomes translate into actionable steps and contribute to raising ambition remains unclear. Thus, it becomes imperative to interpret and localize these outcomes, especially in the Southeast Asia (SEA) context, to fully unlock their potential and drive further climate action and contribution.

The upcoming webinar is structured into two informative sessions. The first session will deep dive into the outcomes of COP28 in relation to the GST1, exploring their implications specifically for Southeast Asia. We will hear expert insights on practical guides for digesting these outcomes, as well as policy briefs focused on GST1 in SEA. The session will culminate in a panel discussion where key members of the Hub will share their evaluations, links to their work, and anticipated challenges for strengthening the GST1 outcomes.

The second session will shift focus to the iGST SEA Hub's Activity Plan for 2024 through a presentation on the activity plan and potential in-person workshops. This session will also include discussions on NDC assessments in the region, involving young fellows, and will conclude with a wrap-up and outline of the next steps.

To register for this insightful workshop, please access the registration link below. We look forward to engaging in discussions and collaborative efforts toward advancing climate resilience and action in Southeast Asia.
