In Paris, the mandate and the work of the 2013 – 2015 review will come to an end.
We have seen scientifically sound, relevant and highly interesting work of the Structured Expert Dialogue, we have learnt that the “guardrail” concept, where up to 2°C of warming is considered safe, is inadequate. Instead we need a long-term goal which makes the defence line as low as possible, ideally 1.5 degrees.
The science of the 2013 – 2015 review is clear, but the political conclusions drawn from its joint contact group (under SBI and SBSTA) were not.
Now in Paris the 2013 – 2015 review is again on the agenda of SBI and SBSTA, but also on the agenda of the COP.
To have prompt access to convincing arguments for a good final result of the 2013 – 2015 review in the attached document you find articles in CANs newsletter eco on the 2013 – 2015 review and CAN submissions on it.
