Densifying the global opportunity structure for climate action
A dense global opportunity structure providing a variety of resources for climate action is necessary to increase the momentum or change the direction of social dynamics towards deep decarbonisation. In the Current Outlook, social rationality assessments reveal global opportunities for climate action to multiply, achieve vision, and materialize at least step-by-step. Regarding the previous version, we observe an increase in the number of climate-related activities, such as more climate-related regulations, protests, zero pledges and UN’s transnational initiatives in climate management and beyond (Sections 6.1.1, 6.1. 2, 6.1.3 and 6.1.4). However, these activities do not necessarily translate into persistent reductions in ambition, performance, and knowledge gaps. We observed only limited evidence for qualitative changes in the global opportunity structure for climate action. These relate to incremental changes in soft and hard law or voluntary and binding climate governance programs (Sections 6.1.1 and 6.1.5). Negotiations at COP26 in Glasgow, UK, failed to address gaps in implementation and the steps needed to phase out fossil fuels. The same is generally true for COP27 in Sharm el-Sheikh, Egypt, which took place after our assessment of the United Nations’ climate governance was completed. Nationally Determined Contributions (NDCs), transnational initiatives, divesting fossil fuels, and corporate responses have largely remained voluntary, despite pressure from lawsuits climate litigation and social movements in translating these contributions into legal regulations or policies (Sections 6.1.2, 6.1.6 and 6.1.7). In fact, the density of the global opportunity structure in terms of quantitative gain is still requires qualitative changes in resources for climate action, such as new forms of activism, new policy instruments and strengthening of soft law (Sections 6.1.3, 6.1.4 and 6.1.5). The same is true of low-carbon consumption models (Section 6.1.8) and enhanced integration of diverse actors and insights into knowledge production, decision-making and climate governance. (Section 6.1.10). In this regard, Indigenous Peoples play an important role in bringing these issues to the fore with climate protests and social movements and helping to preserve existing natural forests. yes, can contribute more in terms of natural reservoirs to carbon neutrality than reforestation. (Section 6.1.4, 6.1.10 and 6.2.5).

Your taxes at work. Maybe Hamburg should check the quality of the academic water supply. Or at least the scientists who wrote down this impenetrable phrase should add “improved communication clarity” to the list of key prerequisites for maintaining the global warming goal. their 1.5C demand.
