UNNGO PeaceeverTV Edite Reprinted report from UN News: Secretary-General António Guterres today (11 Nov) said, “we cannot settle for the lowest common denominator,” and stressed that “we remain on a catastrophic temperature rise track well above 2 degrees Celsius.”

Secretary-General emphasized: “We must now zoom in on the quality and implementation of plans. On measuring and analysing. On reporting, transparency and accountability. That is why – beyond the mechanisms already set out in the Paris Agreement – I have decided to establish a High-Level Expert Group to propose clear standards to measure and analyse net zero commitments from non-state actors. The High-Level Expert group will build on existing work and submit a series of recommendations to me during the course of next year. And they will work in a transparent and inclusive manner, and I invite you all to cooperate fully in their establishment and then with them.”

Speaking at a Global Climate Action High-Level Event in Glasgow, Guterres said, “keeping the 1.5 goal within reach means reducing emissions globally by 45 percent by 2030. But the present set of Nationally Determined Contributions -- even if fully implemented -- will still increase emissions by 2030.”

He said, “every country, every city, every company, every financial institution must radically, credibly and verifiably reduce their emissions and decarbonize their portfolios starting now.”

The Secretary-General said announcements made in Glasgow were “encouraging” but “are far from enough.”

He said, “we need even more ambition in future revised Nationally Determined Contributions. And we need pledges to be implemented. We need commitments to turn concrete. We need actions to be verified. And we need to bridge the deep and real credibility gap.”

Guterres announced the establishment of a High-Level Expert Group “to propose clear standards to measure and analyse net zero commitments from non-state actors,” adding that “the High-Level Expert group will build on existing work and submit a series of recommendations to me during the course of next year.”

Also, today, 11 countries presented the Beyond Oil and Gas Alliance (BOGA) at COP26. Ireland, France, Denmark, and Costa Rica among others, as well as some subnational governments, launched a first of its kind alliance to set an end date for national oil and gas exploration and extraction.
