  •  Take stock of the collective efforts of Parties in relation to progress towards the long-term goal referred to in Article 4.1 of the Paris Agreement; and 
  • Inform the preparation of nationally determined contributions pursuant to Article 4.8, of the Paris Agreement.

 The political phase will take place at COP 24 with the participation of Ministers. At a closing meeting, the Presidencies of COP 23 and COP 24 will provide a summary of key messages from the roundtables to be organized as part of the Talanoa events.
