Event description

Description

Implementation of the Paris Agreement

Following the momentous Conference of the Parties (COP 21), progress towards ratification of the Paris Agreement has been far swifter than expected and the Agreement legally took effect in November 2016
with the world’s two largest emitters – the US and China – playing a leadership role. Donald Trump’s victory creates substantial uncertainty although there is otherwise international consensus that acting on climate change is now imperative.

This event will review the current state of play in relation to international and national implementation of commitments under the Paris Agreement, including discussion on what governments plan to do to honour their own obligations and how they plan to fund action in developing countries.
