The first high-level ministerial roundtable, on pre-2030 ambition, at the UN Climate Change Conference COP27 has called for a collective call to urgently ramp up climate action and support.

The roundtable held earlier this week is a new annual event to set the global direction on mitigation ambition and implementation that should be taken before 2030.

An official release said that government ministers attending the roundtable delivered a collective call to urgently ramp up ambition across the board, “with many developing countries stressing the need for support and sustained financial flows.”

Most ministers agreed the 1.5°C temperature limit is a “red line” that cannot be crossed.According to the report from UN Climate Change, released during the roundtable, implementation of current pledges by national governments would increase emissions by 10.6% by 2030 and put the world on track for a 2.5°C warmer world by the end of the century.

UN Climate Change Executive Secretary Simon Stiell said, “the world is bending the curve of greenhouse gas emissions downward but these efforts remain woefully insufficient to limit global temperature rise to 1.5°C.”
