How Many Countries Joined The Paris Agreement

The Paris Agreement explicitly recognizes the need to address such loss and damage and aims to find appropriate responses. [56] It is specified that loss and damage can take different forms, both as immediate effects of extreme weather events and as slow effects, such as. B loss of land due to sea level rise for low islands. [33] Iran, Iraq and Libya – all among the 14 members of the Organization of the Petroleum Exporting Countries (OPEC) – and conflict-torn states like Yemen and South Sudan have not ratified the agreement. In addition, the agreement establishes a new mechanism to “facilitate implementation and promote compliance.” This “non-adversarial” committee of experts will try to help countries that do not meet their commitments to get back on track. There is no penalty for non-compliance. As part of its commitment to implement a coherent international policy, France has developed effective tools to integrate its climate ambitions into its development strategy. . . .
