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. The Paris climate conference was held from 30 November to 12 December 2015. This was the 21st meeting of the Conference of the Parties (COP 21) at the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC) and the 11th meeting of the Conference of the Parties to the Kyoto Protocol (CMP 11). Delegations from some 150 countries participated in negotiations for a new comprehensive and legally binding agreement on climate change. As soon as the European Parliament gives the go-ahead, the closing decision will be formally adopted by the Council. The EU will then be able to ratify the agreement. Each year, the parties to the UNFCCC meet to review and review progress on the convention, related agreements and their implementation.
The Presidency of the Council represents the EU in these international forums known as the “United Nations Climate Change Conferences” (COP). Johnson is hosting a preliminary meeting of world heads of state and government next month, the fifth anniversary of the Paris agreement. He is expected to use the plan at the Climate Ambition 2020 summit to encourage other countries to follow suit. Under the Paris Agreement, all countries must submit new emission reduction targets for the next decade by the end of the year. The Environment Council has adopted conclusions that define the EU`s position for the UN climate change conference to be held in Paris. Ministers agreed that the EU intends to reach an ambitious, legally binding and dynamic agreement to keep global warming below 2oC. The United Kingdom officially presented on Thursday evening (3 December) the target of a 68% reduction in emissions by 2030 compared to 1990 levels. The objective will serve as a national contribution (NDC) to the Paris Agreement, which will define the necessary internal measures that each country must take to contribute to the implementation of the comprehensive agreement. The timely implementation of the EU climate and energy framework by 2030 was seen as an important sign of the EU`s commitment to the goals of the Paris Agreement.
