What is the Paris Agreement?
The Paris Agreement is an agreement within the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC), dealing with greenhouse-gas-emissions mitigation, adaptation, and finance, starting in the year 2020. The agreement signed by representatives of 196 state parties in Le Bourget, near Paris – France, adopted on 12 December 2015.
The EU’s nationally determined contribution under the Paris Agreement is to reduce greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions by at least 40% by 2030 compared to 1990, under its wider 2030 climate and energy framework.
Global Warming – Global Response
The Paris Agreement’s central aim is to strengthen the global response to the threat of climate change by keeping a global temperature rise this century well below 2 degrees Celsius above pre-industrial levels and to pursue efforts to limit the temperature increase even further to 1.5 degrees Celsius. Additionally, the agreement aims to increase the ability of countries to deal with the impacts of climate change, and at making finance flows consistent with a low GHG emissions and climate-resilient pathway.
The inside story of the Paris climate agreement | Christiana Figueres
What would you do if your job was to save the planet? When Christiana Figueres was tapped by the UN to lead the Paris climate conference (COP 21) in December 2015, she reacted the way many people would: she thought it would be impossible to bring the leaders of 195 countries into agreement on how to slow climate change. Find out how she turned her skepticism into optimism — and helped the world achieve the most important climate agreement in history.
Things that need to change are ideology – culture about climate and the way we consume.
– Can eating less meat really tackle climate change?
– Cutting down on beef meat will save the planet?
With the food system accounting for up to a third of global greenhouse gas emissions, anything that reduces its impact will make a big difference to the climate.
Is Paris climate deal still alive and can deliver?
There was an exit from the White House after the 2016 election – but US and President Trump still turn up to UN talks. Despite Trump’s radical reversals, his state department still debates and negotiates.
How the Paris climate agreement will achieve that remains an open question?
