ENERGIES 2050 Notes
Understanding International Climate Negotiations
The Paris Agreement in a few words
Despite ever more worrying realities and repeated warnings from a majority of actors (scientists, representatives of the public, private or civil society sectors), we can only note the amplification of crises (environmental, societal, Economic, etc.) that our societies face. Man must act quickly and in a sustainable way, faced with challenges that are increasingly complex and which are reinforced and multiplied with each other.
In this context, 2015 was a pivotal year for the future of humanity with two major events: the entry into force of the Sustainable Development Goals and the 21st Conference of the Parties (COP21 or COP21, Conference of the Parties) To the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC) held in Paris in December, which led to a new international agreement on climate. This agreement is a historic step for the international community, bringing together all the Parties to the UNFCCC for the first time.
