The IPCC Special Report on Global Warming of 1.5oC is the most important contribution to the Talanoa Dialogue - it is a game-changer and clearly lays out “where we are”, “where we need to go” and “how we can get there”. 2°C of warming is much more dangerous than we thoughts a few years ago. We only have 12 years left to act swiftly and revert the current trend.

The IPCC special report is clear: 1.5°C is not safe, but 2°C is much worse. The report also shows that limiting warming to 1.5°C is within our economic and technical capability if we act now. This is the final decade.
The IPCC 1.5C Report is clear: we have just 12 years to make radical emission cuts if we are to avert a climate catastrophe.
Here in Katowice, governments were expected to craft robust rules for the Paris Agreement that would build confidence and drive climate action, to deliver adequate and predictable finance, and to commit to enhancing their climate targets by 2020.
At COP24, Parties must realize this vision and spur the Paris Agreement to action by:
- Committing to strengthening their NDCs by 2020 to be compatible with a 1.5C emissions reduction pathway
- Delivering on climate finance and other support need to achieve emission reductions in line with 1.5C; and
- Agreeing on a rulebook that will ensure the environmental integrity of the Paris Agreement
