The Global Stocktake report emphasizes that the core benefits of the transition towards climate neutrality are key to enhancing public and political support for more ambitious action. This motivated several country studies to explore how transition indicators could be defined to enhance understanding, agreement, and implementation of climate action. In this report, transition indicators are investigated as tangible and comprehensible metrics that capture the progress and quality of efforts for long-term emission reduction goals. The research evolves around the following questions: Should they complement emission metrics and targets? Would the recognition of broader benefits enhance support for more ambitious action? Could transition indicators facilitate international learning and cooperation? Where would they be anchored in public policy and in private sector governance?
