The objective of the discussion was to engage pre-COP28 stakeholders, academia, policy makers, and climate experts in a collective effort to raise awareness, foster accountability, and drive action on climate change. The discussion aimed to understanding international and national climate action processes, the outcome of COP27, evaluate the status of Tanzania’s NDCs and identify practical solutions for effective implementation and plans towards COP28. The major theme of the discussion was how to keep the 1.5°C goal alive and how to strengthen adaptation and mitigation actions, including loss and damage.
