What Is The Paris Agreement`s Goal

In an effort to “significantly reduce the risks and impacts of climate change,” the agreement calls for limiting the increase in global average temperature this century to well below 2 degrees Celsius while making efforts to limit the temperature increase to 1.5 degrees. It also calls on countries to strive to balance global greenhouse gas emissions as quickly as possible and to become climate neutral by the second half of this century at the latest. To achieve these targets, 186 countries responsible for more than 90% of global emissions presented carbon reduction targets known as “Intended Nationally Determined Contributions” (INDCs) ahead of the Paris conference. .
