In its eight year, Climate Week will gather heads of state and environmental stakeholders to discuss how to work together to achieve low carbon solutions。 For this year, New York’;s Climate Week will coincide with the opening of the U。N。 General Assembly on Wednesday and many countries are expected to use this occasion to ratify the text they signed in Paris, last December at COP21。

U。N。 Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon said he expects many countries to join which means there’;s a good chance the Paris Agreement might enter into force by the end of the year, possibly even before COP22 in Marocco。

Odds favor Paris Agreement coming into force by the end of the year

At COP21, Paris, a total of 197 countries representing 98 percent of the world’;s greenhouse gas emission agreed to action that would limit warming to two degrees Celsius above the pre-industrial average。 The representatives did not adopt the text, though。 Rather, it was a formal agreement which requires ratification。

For the COP21 deal to become binding, it needs to be ratified by each country’s government which can be complicated and takes time。 It was only “adopted” in Paris, and “signed” in New York in April 2016。

The pact comes into force when at least 55 countries that collectively sum at least 55% of the world’s carbon emissions need to join, in accordance with Article 21, paragraph 1 of the Paris Agreement。 For instance, China, the European Union, the United States, and just a couple other countries like Brazil, Mexico, and South Africa would be enough to bridge the 55% carbon emis***n threshold, but the deal won’;t go through unless the total number of countries involved is at least 55。
