The Class

This class will provide a snapshot of the latest outcomes coming out of the COP28 Climate Summit, sharing insights on the progress — or lack thereof — that was made by countries in stepping up their ambitions including the global community’s initial reactions to the first Global Stocktake. Following this briefing on the COP28 negotiations, the remainder of the class will be dedicated to demonstrating how the Climate Watch platform can help users keep track of national climate plans under the Paris Agreement and also highlight how individuals can find and download data, create and explore key visualizations and more.
