The second meeting of the structured expert dialogue took place on 12 and 13 November. The meeting focused on assessing the adequacy of the long-term global goal (LTGG) in light of the latest IPCC Assessment Report on the physical science of climate change. Additionally, it focused on assessing overall progress made to date towards achieving the LTGG, including the likelihood of meeting and maintaining the goal, as well as on sharing lessons learned on the effectiveness of support provided for this. It was a historical meeting as experts and Party delegates had the opportunity to actively discuss the IPCC report.
The two-day meeting was facilitated by Mr. A. Fischlin, IPCC Author and Mr. Zou Ji or the World Resources Institute. The meeting saw numerous rich interventions from Parties on different issues, including the need for a global adaptation goal, as well as a proposal to assess progress towards the LTGG by means of temperature.
