The Paris Agreement Targets

Two Nature studies have shown that from 2017, none of the major industrialized countries has implemented the measures they have presented and has not achieved its promised emission reduction targets[92] and even if they had done so, the sum of all the commitments made (as of 2016) would not keep the increase in global temperature « well below 2°C ». [93] [94] The Paris Agreement is a pioneering environmental agreement adopted by almost all nations in 2015 to combat climate change and its negative effects. The agreement aims to significantly reduce global greenhouse gas emissions in order to limit the increase in global temperature to 2 degrees Celsius above pre-industrial levels this century, while pursuing ways to limit the increase to 1.5 degrees. The agreement includes a commitment by all major emitting countries to reduce their climate pollution and strengthen these commitments over time. . . .
