The International Context for Norway's Transition to a Low Emissions Economy

How will shifts in international climate policy change the conditions for Norway's transition to a low emissions economy?

Aligning policy and science in global stocktakes

Dialogue, or Talanoa in Fijian, requires transparency: tracking progress towards the Paris goals of “balance” “well below 2°C” needs accurate accounting of both emissions and climate response. We will present the latest science on emission metrics and warming to date, plus implications for the Sustainable Development Goals and CO2 and methane policy.
