The Paris Agreement is the first legally binding universal global agreement on climate change adopted at the Paris Climate Change Conference (COP21) in December 2015. Commits to reduce emissions by 29% for agriculture, 31% for energy and 21% for forests and land use by 2030, compared to a business as usual scenario. That`s an average drop of 27%. This is linked to international aid, although about 40% of them can be filled unconditionally. Contains a section on adaptation, but only for the period 2015-2020. When the Paris Agreement was signed, it was already known that the NdCs as a whole would not be sufficient to meet the temperature targets of the agreement. This is why the Paris countries have agreed to review the improvement and development of their NPNs (increased ambitions), to provide information at a later date and to update or re-submit their contributions by 2020 at the latest. Given that countries have different circumstances, resources and capabilities, the agreement was designed so that each country would define its own commitments in terms of objectives and contributions to the universal agreement. These country commitments are THE CN. The EU and its member states are among the nearly 190 parties to the Paris Agreement.

The EU formally ratified the agreement on 5 October 2016, allowing it to enter into force on 4 November 2016. In order for the agreement to enter into force, at least 55 countries representing at least 55% of global emissions had to file their ratification instruments. Nationally planned contributions (INDCs) are (expected) reductions in greenhouse gas emissions under the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC). All countries that signed the UNFCCC were invited to publish their INDCs at the 2013 UN Climate Change Conference in Warsaw, Poland, in November 2013. [1] [2] The proposed contributions were established without prejudice to the legal nature of the contributions. [2] This was a trade-off between the “quantified emission limitation and reduction target” (OUROs) and “nationally appropriate mitigation measures” (NAMA), by which the Kyoto Protocol describes the different legal obligations of developed and developing countries. To contribute to the goals of the agreement, countries presented comprehensive national climate change plans (national fixed contributions, NDC). These are not yet sufficient to meet the agreed temperature targets, but the agreement points to the way forward for further measures. intends to participate in joint EU efforts to reduce emissions by 40% across the region from 1990 to 2030 levels.
