Among the goals of the international negotiations — the most important since the talks that led to the Paris Agreement in 2015 — will be be to elicit commitments from countries to keep warming this century to 1.5°C above preindustrial levels. Negotiators also will be aiming to mobilize sustainable investment on a scale required to remake how the world produces and consumes energy, a change that will demand the largest reconstruction of the global economy since the Industrial Revolution.
