🗞️ Driving the news: A new UN Climate Change report reveals that national climate action plans are insufficient to limit global temperature rise to 1.5 degrees Celsius, as per the Paris Agreement goals
• Despite some countries' increased efforts, the report emphasizes the need for more significant action to bend the world’s emissions trajectory downward and avoid the worst impacts of climate change

🔭 The context: The report is a critical part of the Paris Agreement's framework, assessing global emissions, climate policies, and mitigation efforts
• It highlights the importance of the upcoming COP28 in Dubai as a pivotal moment for nations to scale up their efforts and align with the Paris Agreement goals

🌍 Why it matters for the planet: The findings highlight a significant gap between current efforts and the necessary targets to limit temperature rise
• The report serves as a crucial call for nations to intensify climate actions and commitments, emphasizing the massive benefits of climate action, including economic growth, job creation, and improved health

⏭️ What's next: The report calls for global cooperation and stronger national commitments, stressing the need for innovative solutions and scaling up successful initiatives
• It underlines the importance of the Global Stocktake in planning ahead and making COP28 a game-changer for climate action

💬 One quote:"Today’s report shows that governments combined are taking baby steps to avert the climate crisis... It’s time to show the massive benefits now of bolder climate action" (Simon Stiell, UN Climate Change)

📈 One stat: If current Nationally Determined Contributions (NDCs) are implemented, emissions will increase by about 8.8% compared to 2010 levels, a marginal improvement over last year’s assessment
