175 nations sign historic Paris Climate Agreement on Earth Day
23 April 2016 Current Affairs: 175 nations including India have signed the historic Paris Climate Agreement at United Nations Headquarters in New York along marking a significant step to combat global warming. On behalf of India, Union Environment Minister Prakash Javadekar signed the agreement at a high-level ceremony hosted by UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon on the occasion of Earth Day (22 April). The ceremony was attended by heads of governments, foreign ministers, corporate leaders and artists from across the world. The agreement will come into force 30 days after at least 55 Parties to the UNFCCC, accounting for at least 55 per cent of global emissions ratify the agreement.

Highlights : The Paris Climate Agreement was formulated within the framework of the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC). Facilitates enforcement of global GHGs reduction measures, adaptation and finance in the post-2020 i.e. in post Kyoto Protocol scenario. The agreement was adopted by representatives of 195 countries at the 21st Conference of the Parties of the UNFCCC held in Paris (France) in December 2015. In the agreement, all countries agreed to work to limit global temperature rise to well below 2 degrees Celsius, and to strive for 1.5 degrees Celsius. Takes into account the principle of equity (climate justice) and common but differentiated responsibilities (CBDR) and respective capabilities. The mitigation will be based on consensus among the members that have incorporated their respective Intended Nationally Determined Contributions (INDCs). Developed countries will provide 100 billion dollars annually to the developing counterparts beginning in 2020 and it would increase with time.

The signing of this agreement is the first step toward ensuring that it comes into force as soon as possible. After the signing, countries must take the further national step of accepting or ratifying the agreement.
