Paris Climate Agreement Not Enough

Amber Rudd, the former UK Energy and Climate Minister, who represented the UK at the Paris talks, said: “A country that understands the seriousness of Cop26 would not reduce international aid now.” Every five years, countries will assess their progress in implementing the agreement through a process known as the global inventory; the first is scheduled for 2023. Countries set their own goals and there are no implementation mechanisms to ensure that they pursue them. But let`s take a closer look at this new universal climate agreement. As host of the cop26 talks, Britain is redoubling diplomatic efforts for next year`s conference. The French government has brought all its diplomatic power to Paris, asked its ambassadors in each country to make climate change its top priority, and sent ministers from around the world to get support.
