Local Stocktakes Outcomes Report released, capturing key takeaways from the local stocktake initiative


ICLEI, as the focal point of the Local Government and Municipal Authority (LGMA) Constituency to the UN Climate Change, is proud to release the #Stocktake4ClimateEmergency Outcomes Report, which captures the key takeaways from the local stocktake initiative.

“The Global Stocktake of the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change represents a unique opportunity to influence global decisions and ensure that climate action is enriched by the innovation and commitment of our community,” said María del Pilar Bueno Rubial, Undersecretary for Climate Change and Just Ecological Transition of Rosario Municipality.

Rosario is one of 20+ cities and regions across 18 countries and six continents that hosted a local stocktake in the lead-up to COP28 UAE. These events provided subnational inputs to the Paris Agreement’s #GlobalStocktake by turning their city halls and regional parliaments into mini-COP venues, paving the way for #MultilevelAction.

You can download the full report here.

The report details the following from participating local stocktake cities and regions:

  • Local climate ambition
  • Subnational alignment with national climate plans
  • Climate justice, at home and globally
  • Youth engagement (through a partnership with ICLEI and YOUNGO)
  • Local stocktake advocacy at COP28

“Organizing this local stocktake has been a powerful initiative, uniting the voices of youth as a meaningful contribution to the global dialogue. It’s our chance to proclaim to the world that the youth are not just present; we are here to make an impact,” said Walter Osigai EII, a youth climate advocate who organized a local stocktake in Kampala, Uganda.

Though the first Global Stocktake concluded at COP28, we invite cities and regions worldwide to bring COP to their town halls annually, and we invite Parties to recognize and incorporate the outcomes of these discussions as part of their commitment to fulfilling the obligations outlined in the Paris Agreement.
