At COP 21 in Paris (Conference Of the Parties on 12 December 2015) UNFCC parties (United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change) reached an agreement to combat the Global Climate Crisis and to accelerate and intensify the actions and investments that are needed for a sustainable low carbon future. For the first time ever this brought all nations into a common cause to undertake ambitious efforts to fight the threat of Planetarian Climate Breakdown.
The Paris Agreement central aim is to strengthen the global response to the threat of Climate Breakdown 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 as also stated in the IPCC report of 2018.
Additionally, the agreement aims to strengthen the ability of countries to deal with the impacts of climate change. To reach these ambitious goals, appropriate financial flows, a new technology framework and an enhanced capacity building framework will be put in place, thus supporting action by developing countries and the most vulnerable countries, in line with their own national objectives.
The Agreement also provides for enhanced transparency of action and support through a more robust transparency framework.
