COP 21, or the Paris Climate Change Conference, led to a new international climate agreement that applies to all countries and aims to keep global warming below 2°C in line with the recommendations of the Intergovernmental Committee on Climate Change (IPCC). The Paris Agreement marks the beginning of a transition to a low-carbon world – much more needs to be done. The implementation of the agreement is essential to achieve the Sustainable Development Goals, as it includes a roadmap for climate action to reduce emissions and build climate resilience. A new global agreement on climate protection will be sealed in Paris. Our vision is driven by inclusion and equity to ensure action by all countries and recognizing that it is the least developed countries and small island developing States that are most vulnerable to climate impact and most in need of assistance to adapt. In response to the climate challenge, the agreement recognises that states have common but different responsibilities, i.e. depending on national capacities and different situations. The contributions were published on the website of the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC) after taking office. On November 22, 2015, a week before the conference, 170 countries, which generated more than 90% of emissions, had already published their national contribution to reducing greenhouse gas emissions. Each contribution had to include quantifiable elements, the base year, the implementation schedule and the methods for quantifying greenhouse gas emissions. It is an agreement with an “action programme” that aims to implement accelerators to ensure more ambitious progress that goes beyond binding commitments.
COP21, also known as “Paris 2015”, is the 21st session of the Conference of the Parties to the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change, where countries will meet to negotiate a new climate agreement in November and December. On 12 December, the parties reached a new global agreement on climate change. The agreement represents a balanced result with an action plan to limit global warming “well below” 2°C. From 30 November to 11 December, governments will meet in Paris on 21 November. Conference of the Parties (COP21) to agree on a new global agreement on climate change. The agreement includes a commitment by all countries to reduce emissions and cooperate to adapt to the effects of climate change and calls on countries to strengthen their commitments over time. The agreement provides a way for developed countries to assist developing countries in their climate change and adaptation efforts, while creating a framework to transparently monitor and report on countries` climate goals. To address climate change and its negative effects, 197 countries adopted the Paris Agreement at COP21 in Paris on 12 December 2015. . .
