This indicates that the EU is on track to meet or exceed its current 2030 emissions reduction target, which is insufficient. A significant reinforcement of this objective is therefore not only feasible, but also necessary to meet the requirement of “the greatest possible ambition” of the Paris Agreement. The Paris Agreement entered into force on 4 November 2016, after fulfilling the condition of ratification by at least 55 countries that have horrified at least 55% of global greenhouse gas emissions. All EU countries have ratified the agreement. The Paris Climate Conference took place from 30 November to 12 December 2015. This was the 21st meeting of the Conference of the Parties (COP 21) to the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC) and the 11th Meeting of the Parties to the Kyoto Protocol (CMP 11). Delegations from around 150 countries participated in the negotiations for a new global and legally binding agreement on climate change. The timely implementation of the EU`s climate and energy framework by 2030 was seen as an important sign of the EU`s commitment to the goals of the Paris Agreement. Ministers also stressed the importance of swift ratification of the agreement.
Representatives of the Presidency of the Council and of the European Commission deposited the official ratification documents with the Secretary-General of the United Nations, depositary of the agreement. “From Paris to 2030” is a high-level event that focuses on the critical decade 2021-2030. Five years after the pioneering Paris climate agreement, the debate will focus on the lack of global leadership in climate change efforts and the actions we need to take today. To achieve the goal of the Paris Agreement, countries must set targets for their climate efforts every five years, thereby increasing their ambitions over time. These goals are called national contributions (NDCs). Updates and new targets are expected by all signatories by the end of 2020. Prior to the Paris Climate Change Conference, the EU submitted its Draft National Contribution (INDC) to the Secretariat of the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC). . . .
