3. Fossil Fuel and Coal Policies: Strategies for phasing down unabated coal power and phasing out inefficient fossil fuel subsidies.

4. Action Plan Development: Guidance for countries to formulate stronger climate action plans by 2025.

Significance:

The global stocktake at COP28 plays a crucial role in monitoring and encouraging enhanced action by countries.

It serves as a reality check, showing how far the world has come and how much further it needs to go to meet the Paris Agreement targets.

The process is vital for transparency, accountability, and fostering international collaboration in the fight against climate change.
