Delivering climate action by 2030 to limit warming to 1.5 degrees C will require rapid transformations across our major systems – energy, industry, food, forest and land, finance and more.  

This session focused on what action is needed by 2030, and how taking a systems approach to the required transformations will be vital. We unveiled the new Systems Change data platform and discussed the latest findings from the State of Climate Action 2022 report.
