What Is The 2015 Paris Agreement Or Cop 21

The Paris Agreement is the world`s first comprehensive climate agreement. [15] In 1992, at the Earth Summit in Rio, Brazil, President George H.W. Bush, along with 107 other heads of state, adopted a number of environmental agreements, including the UNFCCC framework, which is still in force today. The international treaty aims to prevent dangerous human interference in Earth`s climate systems in the long term. The Pact does not set greenhouse gas emission limits for each country and does not include enforcement mechanisms, but rather creates a framework for international negotiations on future agreements or protocols to set binding emission targets. Participating countries meet annually at a Conference of the Parties (COP) to assess their progress and continue discussions on how best to tackle climate change. .
