Congo Paris Agreement

Nearly 200 nations made history in Paris last December, coming together around the most ambitious climate agreement, including, ever negotiated. I had the honour of representing the United States in these negotiations and being in the conference room when the text was tabled. As soon as the Paris Agreement was adopted, President Obama and I launched a global initiative and called on our counterparts around the world to contribute to the rapid implementation and timely entry into force of the agreement. On Earth Day this year, I joined representatives of a record number of parties to sign the agreement and signal the intention of our nations to formally join. Today, less than six months later, a sufficient number of countries – which sufficiently represent global greenhouse gas emissions – have presented their instruments to formally join. The Paris agreement will enter into force in 30 days. ”I am ashamed of my country`s continued role in undermining efforts to secure a strong and binding agreement, which now culminates in Trump`s exit from the Paris accord. Here in the United States, climate justice activists are struggling hard to find a way out of the interior. We hope that our allies would make their voices heard in American embassies – both to isolate Donald Trump and his Ilk – and put pressure on the United States to step up and take responsibility for finding just and real solutions to the escalation of the climate catastrophe. Rachel Smolker, BiofuelWatch USA ”The Climate Justice Alliance has struggled to ensure that indigenous people, women, human rights and a fair transition are at the forefront of international climate agreements. The inadequacies of the Paris agreement – and Trump`s erroneous and embarrassing decision to withdraw the United States from the agreement – prove more than ever that it is communities on the front lines of the climate crisis that are leading us to a renewable and regenerative future.

We will continue to organize for climate justice and we will stand in solidarity with our international allies who are struggling to survive, opposing extraction and creating solutions from scratch. Angela Adrar, Climate Justice Alliance USA With President Donald Trump announcing that the United States is withdrawing from the agreement, what does this mean for the parties to the Congo Basin to the agreement and for the forest they are sheltering? All parties to the UNFCCC are expected to submit their applications before the Paris climate change conference in November-December 2015. Individuals submitted to no more than 1 October 2015 are included in a summary report on their overall effects before 1 November 2015. At the Paris climate change conference, the parties are expected to agree on a comprehensive agreement on climate change, which is expected to enter into force in 2020.

Compulsory fields are marked – Austria has a long history of reporting to the UNFCCC. The country began reporting in 1979, after the signing of a European agreement to take action against Acid Rain (EEC-UN convention). Since 1994, Austria has been reporting to the UNFCCC Convention, which states that the Kyoto Protocol on Reducing Greenhouse Gas Emissions was developed in 2008 to combat global warming. Austria is also at the forefront of the coverage of the ghg inventory.

The Environment Agency is also one of the agencies responsible for preparing GHG reports for the European Union. The preparation and preparation request was approved by the Green Climate Fund in February 2018 and the ”National Preparedness Adaptation Plans in the Democratic Republic of Congo” project aims to accelerate the process of adapting climate-sensitive priority sectors and regions in the Democratic Republic of Congo.
