In October 2018, the IPCC Special Report on Global Warming of 1.5°C (SR15) was published. It stresses that both international and national climate policy efforts need to intensify to limit global warming to 1.5°C above pre-industrial levels. These efforts will require the scaling up of ambition within and beyond current Nationally Determined Contributions (NDCs) under the Paris Agreement, including transformative systematic change in policy, technology and behaviour across all regions and sectors.

SQ Consult's Dian Phylipsen co-authored a brief on this, as part of a series of briefs related to the SR15 for Climate Strategies.
