UN Climate Change Negotiating Body Raises the Bar Ahead of Paris Climate Change Talks at End of Year

Meeting in Bonn on the 24th July, the UN climate change negotiating body published a document provides for the first time clarity on what could be contained within the emerging legal agreement in Paris. It also clarifies what decisions with immediate effect could be taken at the moment the agreement is adopted. Finally it starts to identify what further decisions will need to be taken to make the Paris Agreement fully operational before it enters into effect in 2020.

New commitments that boost the response to climate change would be enshrined in the agreement, but the details of how these commitments would be implemented as well as the details of any new arrangements to support implementation are captured in an accompanying decision. Governments under the UN Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC) are set to reach a new climate change agreement in Paris, in December, that puts all nations on track towards a sustainable future by keeping the average global temperature from rising beyond 2 degrees Celsius.

As part of the agreement, every country is expected to contribute now and into the future, based on their national circumstances and with adequate financial and technology support, to bring down global greenhouse gas emissions in line with the ultimate goal and to adapt societies and economies to existing and future climate change.
