October 5, 2016

The Paris Climate Change Agreement will enter into force as over 55 Parties covering more than 55 per cent of global greenhouse gas emissions ratified the agreement. Therefore, the Paris Agreement will enter into force on November 4.

“This is a truly historic moment for people everywhere. The two key thresholds needed for the Paris Climate Change Agreement to become legal reality have now been met,” said Patricia Espinosa, Executive Secretary of the UN Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC).
