Are the Paris climate goals still within reach?

Global cooperation and innovation remain core to climate progress.

The 2015 Paris Agreement set the target of limiting global warming to 1.5 degrees Celsius above preindustrial levels. This week’s release of the latest climate assessment report from the U.N. Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change underlines, once again, the need for deep decarbonization as quickly as possible for that goal to be met — even as world leaders rethink their energy policies amid the ongoing Russia-Ukraine conflict. 

On this episode of Political Climate, Julia Pyper hosts a discussion between renowned climate policy experts Laurence Tubiana, Rachel Kyte, David Sandalow and Adnan Amin about the progress that has been made toward meeting the Paris goals. They also discuss how to achieve equitable climate solutions and mobilize more climate finance. This conversation was originally recorded for the Zayed Sustainability Prize’s Voices of Sustainability series and is republished with approval.
