Accords and agreements haven’t been the sole weapon to tackle climate change, and the measures taken have a critical impact. The situation deepens in gravity as each second passes by, and we are at a crucial juncture of decision point.
Decision making regarding climate change will get easier to enunciate through personal to societal proclamation tending towards the steps taken to limit greenhouse gas emissions and proficiently pronounce greenness in every step. The Paris agreement was an important step in the right direction, and the benefits outweigh the shortcoming of the agreement.
A total of 196 countries signed the deal with the UNFCCC (United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change), and as of now, 188 countries remain a party to it. By definition, this agreement is a big deal, and without proper understanding of the deal’s clauses, it will be very hard to harness and identify the elements of climate change. The world is in a fragile state, and it’s going to be hit hard by more fragilities as we exercise our power over nature.
As per the rule of law of the Paris agreement, the main facto remained that the global average temperature should be below 2 degrees Celsius, along with the idea of limiting the rise to a maximum of 1.5 degrees Celsius. Also, greenhouse gas emissions should be decreased as to not under press world food production, and at last, we have the relationship between climate resilience and financial capital flows, which in combination helps reach a greener future.
Climate change presents us with one of the biggest problems of the 21st century. When our existence, along with livelihood, severely undergoes an ill fostered transition, what is left is the debris of our mistakes. We have enough facts to prove climate change is real, and there is no turning back. The future outlook remains dim as the layman doesn’t and isn’t going to recognize climate as a real concern. Through acute reiteration of communal practices, the identification by faults amongst the ordinary to the powerful and influential people of the society slowly gathers impetus in a manner forgone in the remnants of the past.
20/20/20 is the date according to the agreement that implied that the carbon emissions should be decreased by 20 percent and the renewable energy market elevate by 20 percent along with a 20 percent increase in energy efficiency. Nationally Determined Contributions (NDCs) are the very objectives of a single nation to report on a five-year basis to the UNFCCC secretariat and, with each report go beyond the premonitions, be even more ambitious with the latest development goals.
According to the Nationally Determined Contributions and pledges that were taken at the Climate Change Conference back in 2015, Pooling countries have become a stronghold to limit this vicious disease and natural calamity.
The NDCs are set in a very ambiguous way, and it particularly depends very much on a country by country basis. The binding norms that tie submissive actualization of the determinants of factors affecting climate change involving a single nation have down played the bigger game at hand.
As per international law, the lack of specific goals remains a concern yet unattended, and there are no formal restrictions to meet the carbon reduction law as per the NDCs, and the specific countries have the free will to set their own standards. The very proposal agreement if the agreement is that there are no recuperations if the country doesn’t meet their own NDC standard.
This would pose a very big challenge- what if the whole claim of green surety met the harsh reality of over-dependency on fossil fuels and the best example of it is the ever so slow melting of the north and south polar ice caps pole. The slow detrimental effect that climate change has had on us will be in the realm of visibility over a measure of decades, and it is easily understandable why this has pervaded the mind of the ordinary man. The NDC formed a partnership relating with the COP22 at Marrakesh, which instilled confidence by meeting large scale climate and sustainable development projects.
If the temperature rises close to 2 degree Celsius, then there is going to be an emission of 55 gigatons of greenhouse gases, and if the temperature rises slightly lower than 1.5, then it’s going to indicate that about that many greenhouse gases around 40 gigatons were released into the atmosphere all within the time frame of 2025 to 2035. The NDCs will be reviewed and tested by the Global Stocktake in a facilitative dialogue to reach the goal of zero emissions by the end of the century. The Global Stocktake is the most abundant form of checking up with the way the NDC of the country meets the desired standards of the accord, and this ratchets up with the ambition of the country’s ability to meet its very own NDC standard.
The most important aspect of all of this is the 5-year review programs that foresee climate adaptation, climate finance outlook, and technology and its uptake by countries to positively render its good use. In general, the Paris accord has a bottom-up structure compared to top-down as reviewed by other structures.
The climate change accord in Paris is quite different from that of the Kyoto protocol-the main difference being that the Paris accord was more consensuses built, whereas the Kyoto protocol was legal handling of the entire situation. The Paris agreement is just a framework for the global carbon market and enhances the cooperative measures taken to ensure climate stability.
So far, we have yet delved into the real matter of things: Climate change continues to troubles us and isn’t going to leave us in the years to come. To properly mitigate away from this crisis will require foremost unity among nations and a nation itself. Without the intuitive guidelines, we can shy away from the fact that the narrative that climate change carries with itself is a growing intuitive remark-somewhere in the region of good efficacy-always reminds us of modern social institutions that help us rely on the cornerstone of human intellectual development.
