What is the Paris Agreement?


The Paris Agreement, adopted in 2015 at the UN Conference of the Parties, is an international treaty that aims to limit average global warming to 1.5°C above pre-industrial levels by 2050. The Paris Agreement requires all Parties, or countries, to take ambitious steps to advance climate action, including mapping nationally determined contributions (NDCs) and long-term low greenhouse gas emission development strategies (LT-LEDS).
