The large number of countries will set a record for most countries that sign an international agreement established in 1982, when 119 countries signed the convention. Please note that 8 April 2016 was the deadline to apply for media accreditation for the high-level signing ceremony of the Paris Agreement on climate change (22 April). This accreditation applies to all events held during the week of April 18 to 22. Amid the hope and hype, delegates signed the Paris climate agreement at the UN headquarters in New York. The Paris Agreement was adopted on 12 December 2015 at COP21 in Paris by the 196 parties to the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change. In the agreement, all countries agreed to limit the increase in global temperature to well below 2 degrees Celsius and to target 1.5 degrees Celsius due to the serious risks. The implementation of the Paris Agreement is essential to achieving the Sustainable Development Goals and provides a roadmap for climate action that reduces emissions and strengthens climate resilience. Following the signing of the Paris Agreement, the Heads of State and Government made national declarations addressing, inter alia, their intention to ratify and re-implement their national climate change policy and action. Several countries, including Australia, Argentina, Cameroon, Canada, China, France, Mali, Mexico, the Philippines and the United States, have announced their intention to ratify the agreement in 2016. Others, including Brazil, the EU and the Russian Federation, have pledged to work swiftly towards the conclusion of the necessary steps to ratify the agreement. The adoption of the agreement sends a message to the world that countries are serious about fighting climate change. The fact that the 196 parties to the Convention have reached this agreement is a remarkable triumph.
The agreement can enter into force 30 days after the ratification of the agreement by at least 55 parties to the UNFCCC, for which at least 55% of global emissions are superfluous. More than 165 countries have hinted that they will sign the historic climate change agreement reached last December in Paris at a signing ceremony by UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon on April 22. 22 April 2016 Solemn signing of the Paris Agreement High-level, the agreement consists of a basic agreement that will govern the international process that will bind the parties, while there are elements that are not part of the legally binding agreement. These parts, like the planned national contributions, may be mandatory at national level. The high-level signing ceremony of the Paris Agreement on climate change, which took place on World Day, was organised by the Secretary-General of the United Nations. Hailing the 175 participating countries, Ban Ki-moon stressed that the ceremony represented the largest number of heads of state and government in the world in history who signed an international agreement in one day. At the opening ceremony, he said the planet was experiencing record temperatures: “We are in a race against time. I call on all countries to join the agreement at national level.
French President Francois Hollande said the Paris Agreement was an “emotional moment, rarely in the lives of politicians and leaders.” The Paris Agreement is open for signature by the Contracting Parties to the United Nations Framework Convention on 22 April and is open for signature for one year. . . .
