Negotiators of the agreement said that the INDCs presented at the time of the Paris conference were not sufficient. concerned that aggregate greenhouse gas emission estimates for 2025 and 2030, resulting from projected national contributions, are not covered by the most cost-effective scenarios at 2oC, but result in a forecast level of 55 gigatonnes. By 2030, and acknowledging “that much greater efforts will be needed to reduce emissions in order to keep the increase in the average global temperature to less than 2 degrees Celsius by reducing emissions to 40 gigatonnes or 1.5 degrees Celsius. [25] [25] [Clarification needed] How each country is on track to meet its obligations under the Paris Agreement can be tracked continuously online (via the Climate Action Tracker [95] and the climate clock). The aim of the agreement is to: reduce global warming as described in Article 2 by ensuring the “implementation” of the UNFCCC by:[11] At the 2015 Paris conference at which the agreement was negotiated, developed countries reaffirmed a commitment to mobilize $100 billion a year for climate finance by 2020 and agreed to continue mobilizing $100 billion a year until 2025. [48] The commitment refers to the existing plan to allocate $100 billion per year to developing countries for climate change adaptation and climate change mitigation. [49] Although the agreement has been welcomed by many, including French President Francois Hollande and UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon,[67] criticism has also emerged. James Hansen, a former NASA scientist and climate change expert, expressed anger that most of the agreement is made up of “promises” or goals, not firm commitments. [98] He called the Paris talks a fraud with “nothing, only promises” and believed that only a generalized tax on CO2 emissions, which is not part of the Paris agreement, would force CO2 emissions down fast enough to avoid the worst effects of global warming. [98] The implementation of the agreement by all the Member States combined will be evaluated every five years, with the first evaluation in 2023. The result will be used as an input for new national contributions from Member States.

[30] The inventory will not be national contributions/achievements, but a collective analysis of what has been achieved and what remains to be done. Of course, countries can hold each other to account if they feel that a signatory is not complying with the agreements. At the international level, however, there is considerable reluctance to formally criticize each other and States do not welcome the sanctions imposed on participants who do not comply with their agreements. It is important to know that the Paris Agreement requires each country to determine what it will bring to the resolution of the climate issue. Each country must set goals, guidelines and legislation. A country`s willingness to make sufficient efforts is illustrated by the ambition and effectiveness of its national climate policy and legislation in the coming decades. This last point is also important because global warming will require our attention for decades to come. In addition, a country must naturally implement its policy.
