Will the Paris Agreement Run the Same Course as the Kyoto Protocol?
2017/05/25
The Paris Agreement, the international framework to combat climate change that entered into force in November 2016, targets massive cuts in global greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions by signatory countries in 2050.
 
The Agreement was adopted in December 2015 at COP21, the 21st Conference of the Parties to the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change, held in Paris, France. Last September, China and the United States, the largest and second-largest GHG emitter countries respectively, joined the Agreement. After the European Union (EU) joined in October 2016, the Agreement reached its threshold for entry into force, which happened in November.
 
Under the Paris Agreement, all countries including developing countries submit their targets for reducing GHG emissions to the United Nations and commit to taking action to combat climate change. The United States has set the target of reducing GHG emissions by 26-28% by 2025 compared to 2005 levels.
