What is the ‘Paris Agreement’, and how does it work?

This video explains the basics of the Paris Agreement: the international UN treaty of 2015 that aims to tackle climate change head on.
It’s central aim is to strengthen the global response to the threat of climate change by keeping a global temperature rise this century well below 2 degrees Celsius above pre-industrial levels, with ambition to limit the increase even further to 1.5 degrees Celsius.

Additionally, the agreement aims to strengthen the ability of countries to deal with the impacts of climate change.

——–

The Paris Agreement is a legally binding international treaty on climate change. It was adopted by 196 Parties at COP 21 in Paris, on 12 December 2015 and entered into force on 4 November 2016.

Its goal is to limit global warming to well below 2, preferably to 1.5 degrees Celsius, compared to pre-industrial levels.

To achieve this long-term temperature goal, countries aim to reach global peaking of greenhouse gas emissions as soon as possible to achieve a climate neutral world by mid-century.

The Paris Agreement is a landmark in the multilateral climate change process because, for the first time, a binding agreement brings all nations into a common cause to undertake ambitious efforts to combat climate change and adapt to its effects.

  1. We need also an worldwide peace agreement very soon be signed somewhere in this small planet of humankind’s civilization and culture 🇺🇳

  2. We do this by documenting and logging data and information about every carbon based being on planet earth into a gigantic corporate database in where it can be tracked, traced, and 'managed'.

  3. Depopulationists playing God. Don't understand how nature works, at least not you pawns carrying out the directives, i.e. propaganda and you are going to be held accountable by the one you pray to that he doesn't exist. That karma is not a thing, let alone an angry mother bear.

  4. Climate change and ecology Natural basis It affects the livelihoods of rural people in every country very heavily and urban communities, especially the cultivation of animal husbandry, fisheries, and urban water resources will face an increasingly severe weather environment.

    Mr.Monchai PonYiam From Thailand .การเปลี่ยนแปลงสภาพภูมิอากาศและนิเวศวิทยาพื้นฐานทางธรรมชาติส่งผลกระทบต่อการดำรงชีวิตของชาวชนบทในทุกประเทศอย่างมากและชุมชนเมืองโดยเฉพาะอย่างยิ่งการเพาะปลูกเลี้ยงสัตว์การประมงและแหล่งน้ำในเมืองจะต้องเผชิญกับสภาพอากาศที่รุนแรงขึ้น

  5. so you think developing and third world countries care about the climate? those countries have alot of development to make they dont care. this is just a ripoff on USA and europe. even china doesnt care. waste of money, led by emotional people.

  14. I don't know why so many people are disliking this video. People need to see this, and realize that climate change is a very real and serious threat. Thank you United Nations for posting this, please keep fighting to save our planet!

  15. What stops a country from falsifying there reports and use there power so other countries will look the other way like USA and china also Mexico that this past years have open new coal mines and yet Mexico and china keep saying they are with the Paris agreement also USA is back in the Paris agreement this year

  16. Based on the devastated wake left behind , let's scrap it and take the hidden industry and its effects on oxygen and water into consideration and quit criminalizing cattle and have a closer look at chemical responsibilities , stop acting ,too, like there's a choice when demanding more computer and electronic dependency and less reliable more costly failures to compare to. Sink the agreement that trys to reward itself for its monopoly of advanced science

  17. Reallllyyyy sounds like a slush fund… hardley any of the partners meet quotas and they are none binding agreements at that.. yet we will still commit billions in aid… i love politicians because they are consistent, the more money you throw into a whole the less likley you are to notice if a couple mill get lost 🙂

  18. The Paris Agreement; a wealth extraction treaty that steals wealth from the working class and moves it to the wealthy and China. Can't forget China. As all things that come from the UN, it is corrupt, vile, and anti working class.

  19. Its a set of unelected people who came up with an idea of how to turn the 87 countries that signed up to it into a globalized emissions focused economies ,bringing rich rewards to the governments that signed up of massivly increased tax & charges revenues .

    The fact that hundreds of volcanes are erupting arounf the world and producing millions of tons of Co2 seems to have nothing to do with it along with the pollution that affects the air quality ,both are measured in our towns & cities ,the earths core is expanding and speeds up the tectonic plates causing more earth quakes & eruptions , there are eruptions from volcanes that been dormant for thousands of yrs but the biggest threat comes from the ones under the sea bed and these are on the increase .

    If your in a position to have the relivant information fron satellites and the massive program that monitors the volcanoes you can then release figures for the increase in Co2 and air quality and just the public its down to them .

    This is globalization on the back of saving the planet ,one look at the accords shipping emissions laws will show you what is going to happen to the price of goods carried via shipping smaller operators cant afford the costs of the conversions so have to go out of business ,& thousands of older ships will have to be scrapped and the global boys pick up the contracts + the shipping industry gets regenerated into the bargain .

    EVs use 3/4 times as much copper than a piston engine vehicle and they take only 3 people to make one where as it takes 5 people to make a petrol /diesel one the result is Renault will be sacking 30,000 + workers ,times that by all of the auto manufactures and the jobless start to mount up ,the rise in AI automated systems means we end up with robots doing pick & pack in warehousing environments and production lines ,the cost of living goes through the roof as the green laws kick in the winners are the governments and the global boys the loosers are the public ,you been had if you thought it was saving the planet !

  20. The Paris agreement is a deal created to get in the way especially providing framework. It is a deal slowing the process of the nation to move on and to clean the air on climate change and to prevent paying the way it suppose to be in The future.

  21. IF FRANCE CANNOT GET PEUGOT CARS TO GET THEIR GAS EMISSIONS DOWN TO THE REQUIREMENTS OF THE UNITED STATES THEN WHY IS IT CALLED THE PARIS AGREEMENT? BECAUSE IT IS A ROMANTIC NOTION AND NOT A FACT. TESLA IS DOING THE MOST FOR CLIMATE CHANGE RIGHT NOW and that isn't enough. STOP PROCREATING I THINK THAT IS THE MESSAGE.

  22. Without a virus to enforce public control there would be mass demonstrations in the streets as the effects of the Parise accord start to kick in causing financial hardship to millions
    While the worlds corporations & businesses all get regenerated .
    Governments signed up to it because their Taxes & charges revenues will tripple at least
    And no worried for the MPs /Ministers & Lords they put all of the extra costs onto their expenses ,a luxury the UK public dont have ,

    If you thought this was about saving the planet & being green you got duped !

  23. Paris accord is about world trade & the worlds resources , as is the Chinese own /control appx 90% of the worlds rare Earth materials ,along with a lot of other materials .
    Russia owns just about everything the EU /UK need to continue producing .
    Back in 2013 The Ukrainians were slaughtering Russian peasants in the Donbass none of this was reported on any UK /EU news outlets ,The EU wanted to expand NATO closer to Russia .
    When the G7 meet so do the Bilderberg group they are the think tank for the worlds top industrailists and the worlds resources areon the menue .Bilderberg group study political stability and the worlds resources amongst other things .
    The supply problem was brewing for some yrs prior to 2014 , even with out the Russian war
    Resources were costing a lot more and the industrialists needed more money to by the resources hence the Paris accord where the public are told its about saving the planet by going green with green taxes it takes the publics eye off what is really happening .

    The Paris accord is a scheme worthy of James Bonds Spectre ,the world of the Paris accord is a world for the weathy while the rest of us slide down the road into a Mad Max dystopian world !
