While governments made some progress in Glasgow on closing the 2030 emissions gap, there is still a long way to go to align with the Paris Agreement’s 1.5°C temperature goal. All governments need to take heed of the request to ‘revisit and strengthen’ their targets in 2022. While strong targets are critical, so too is ensuring that the necessary governance structures are in place in order to achieve these targets. Under its Climate Governance Series, the Climate Action Tracker evaluates the ability and readiness of national governments to enable the required economy-wide transformation towards a zero emissions society.
At this virtual event as part of the Middle East and North Africa Climate Week in March 2022, the Climate Action Tracker launched its assessment of Egyptian climate governance and the Egypt rating profile as well as discussed the state of climate action in the MENA region.
Kouassigan Tovivo moderated the webinar while Deborah Ramalope presented the state of climate action post-Glasgow, Mia Moisio shone the spotlight on how well Egypt, Iran, Morocco, Saudi Arabia, and United Arab Emirates are doing in their climate action, Claire Stockwell explained the importance of climate governance, and Koffi Koumassi discussed climate governance in Egypt and sub-Saharan Africa.
