World’s Climate in the Balance at Marrakesh
by David Sheppard, Adjunct Senior Fellow, University of the South Pacific and former SPREP Director General
The world’s latest gathering to tackle climate change is underway – with the task of following up last years’ landmark Paris Agreement to limit the effects of climate change.
This Agreement was adopted at the UN climate conference in December 2015 in Paris, France. At least 55 Parties accounting for at least 55% of global greenhouse gas emissions, were required to ratify it before it could enter into force.
