The GOBLEU project, jointly promoted by ANA Holdings, Inc. and Japan Aerospace Exploration Agency (JAXA), has submitted a joint submission to the first Global Stocktake of the Paris Agreement.
Last November, the rules for the implementation of the Paris Agreement were finally approved at the 26th Conference of the Parties (COP26) to the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC) in Glasgow. From 2022 onwards, countries are required to increase their levels of ambition in accordance with the approved rules, to achieve the long-term goals of the Agreement. The GST is a mechanism to assess global progress towards achieving these goals of the Paris Agreement (referred to in Article 14).
The first GST was initiated at COP26 and is due to conclude in November 2023, at COP 28. In the light of “equity” and the “best available science”, countries are to assemble information on three thematic areas of climate change; “mitigation”, “adaptation” and “means of implementation and support” for the GST. Based on the information gathered, the collective progress and summarizes discussion results are to be assessed for the GST. The input will be provided by governmental and non-governmental stakeholders around the world.
We submitted information on the GOBLEU project because we believe that the efforts of the GOBLEU project will be useful in promoting the implementation of the Paris Agreement and will contribute to solving global environmental problems.
