This Global Forum focused on cross-cutting issues in the global stocktake of the Paris Agreement, on the interplay between mitigation targets by countries and non-Party stakeholders, and on the global goal on adaptation. The session on the global goal on adaptation was organised in partnership with the Council on Energy, Environment and Water (CEEW). Participants also heard about recent OECD work on fossil fuel subsidies as well as recent IEA work on methane.
