At COP21, held in Paris in 2015, the 196 member parties negotiated what is known as the Paris Agreement, which established specific actions and targets for reducing greenhouse gases emissions, mitigating and adapting to the effects of climate change, and financing mitigation and adaptation efforts in developing countries. Signatory countries agreed to work to limit global temperature rise to below 2 degrees Celsius and to make strong efforts to keep the rise to 1.5 degrees Celsius. The Paris Agreement is especially significant because it is a legally binding agreement.
With President Donald Trump recently announcing the shocking withdrawal of the U.S. from the Paris Climate Agreement, this year’s COP and climate talks are more important than ever.
