On December 12, 2015, Canada and 194 other countries concluded the Paris Agreement, an ambitious and balanced agreement to combat climate change. This new agreement will strengthen efforts to limit global temperature rise to well below 2 degrees Celsius and continue efforts to limit the increase to 1.5 degrees Celsius. Here is an example of the number of international environmental agreements: the main objective of the agreement is to keep global temperature “well below” two degrees Celsius above pre-industrial levels and to continue efforts to further limit the temperature increase to 1.5 degrees Celsius. He says Trump`s decision will make it “so much more difficult” for the world to meet the overall goal set by the Paris agreement. Currently, 166 countries have ratified the Paris Agreement, which means that they have obtained the approval of their country`s government and have accepted these objectives. Canada is one of the notifying parties, which means that Canada has now committed to this agreement, that we must take action in our own country to limit emissions. In addition to what is happening at the national level, the Canadian government is also investing $2.65 billion to help developing countries reduce their emissions and have partnered with the European Union to invest more money in clean energy. In December 2015, we played a leading role in securing a historic agreement with 194 contracting parties in Paris to combat climate change. The Paris Agreement aims to limit global temperature rise to well below 2 degrees above pre-industrial levels and to continue efforts to limit temperature rise to 1.5 degrees. Canada played a leading role in the implementation of the Paris Agreement.
This has been achieved through multilateral and bilateral engagement and assistance to the poorest and most vulnerable countries. In November 2015, Canada announced a historic commitment of $2.65 billion in climate funding over five years. This contribution represents Canada`s largest contribution to climate finance. The total amount of Canadian climate change assistance will help developing countries move to low-carbon economies and build resilience to climate change.
