The entry into force of Paris Agreement


The rapid entry into force of the Paris Agreement within one year presents the political will and determination of countries to achieve economic decarbonization, and releases a clear signal to businesses and investors that economy development should be decoupled from high carbon emissions. The Paris Agreement provides a framework for global climate governance, where countries need to translate climate pledges into substantive actions, and gradually increase climate ambitions to take steps to promote global phasing out of fossil fuels and to achieve the sustainable development based on people-shared clean energy. For 5 years, we have been promoting Chinese civil society to actively engage with global climate governance.
