The authors of the agreement have set a withdrawal period that President Trump must follow – which prevents him from irreparably harming our climate. From a national point of view, these strategies are fundamental, as they govern the short- and medium-term prospects of political and economic cycles and create political security for the courageous and concrete action of economic actors. At the same time, they provide countries with the flexibility to follow a path that does not meet their development and poverty goals, while allowing them to transform their economies. The objective of the agreement is to reduce the global warming described in Article 2 and to improve the implementation of the UNFCCC through the following measures:[11] Efforts to achieve this goal have reached important milestones such as the Kyoto Protocol and, more recently, the Paris Agreement. Governments have agreed on concrete measures and timelines to reduce emissions and adapt to the effects of climate change. They also agreed to cooperate in the areas of finance, technology and capacity building to intensify efforts over time. The Katowice package adopted at the United Nations Climate Change Conference (COP24) in December 2018 contains common and detailed rules, procedures and guidelines that affect the Paris agreement in the operation. INDE has addressed the challenges of eradicating poverty while reducing greenhouse gas emissions. About 24% of the world`s population without access to electricity (304 million) lived in India.

Nevertheless, the country planned to “reduce the intensity of its GDP emissions by 33-35% by 2030” from 2005 levels. The country has also attempted to buy about 40% of its electricity from renewable energy sources, not fossil fuels by 2030. INDC found that implementation plans would not be affordable from national resources: it estimated that it would take at least $2.5 trillion to implement climate change measures by 2030. India would achieve this through the transfer of technology (transfer of capacity and equipment from the most developed countries to less developed countries [LDCs]) and international funding, including support from the Green Climate Fund (an end-to-end investment support program in low-emission technologies and the development of populations vulnerable to the effects of climate change). The EU has been at the forefront of international efforts to combat climate change. It played an important role in mediating the Paris Agreement and continues to play a leading role at the global level. The agreement offers a way forward to limit the temperature increase to a level well below 2 degrees, perhaps even 1.5 degrees. The agreement provides a mechanism to raise the level of ambitions. National communication reports often cover several hundred pages and cover a country`s actions to reduce greenhouse gas emissions, as well as a description of its weaknesses and effects of climate change. [90] National communications are established in accordance with guidelines adopted by the UNFCCC Conference of Parties. Contributions (planned) at the national level (NDC), which form the basis of the Paris Agreement, are shorter and less detailed, but also follow a standard structure and are subject to technical review by experts. The agreement recognizes the role of non-partisan stakeholders in the fight against climate change, including cities, other sub-national authorities, civil society, the private sector and others.
