Paris Agreement

The Paris Agreement builds on the convention (1/CP.21 Adoption of the Paris Agreement) and for the first time brings all nations into a common cause to undertake ambitious efforts to combat climate change and adapt to its effects. The Agreement’s aim is to strengthen the global response to the threat of climate change by keeping the global temperature rise this century well-below 2 degrees Celsius, and also even limit the temperature increase even further to 1.5 degrees Celsius. All nations that have signed the convention need to set action plans on how to reduce their climate effect and act in line with the goal to keep a global temperature rise below 2 degrees Celsius.
