The Katowice package, adopted at the UN Climate Change Conference (COP24) in December 2018, contains common and detailed rules, procedures and guidelines that regulate the Paris Agreement. While strengthening the ambitions of NDCs is a major objective of the global inventory, it assesses efforts that go beyond control. The five-year reviews will also assess adaptation, climate finance rules, and technology development and transfer.  In quantifying the damage caused by carbon pollution to society, Trump views America as an island in itself – and we all know what climate change is doing to the islands. The Paris Agreement is the culmination of decades of international efforts to combat climate change. Here`s a little story. Instead of giving China and India a passport on pollution, as Trump claims, the pact represents the first time these two major developing countries have agreed on concrete and ambitious climate commitments. Both countries, already ready to let the world lead renewable energy, have made considerable progress in meeting their Paris targets. And since Trump announced his intention to withdraw the United States from the deal, the Chinese and Indian leaders have reaffirmed their commitment and continued to implement domestic measures to achieve their goals. Among other things, countries need to report on their greenhouse gas inventories and progress against their targets, so that external experts can assess their success. Countries should also review their commitments by 2020 and present new targets every five years to further reduce emissions.
They must participate in a “global inventory” to measure the collective effort to achieve the long-term goals of the Paris Agreement. In the meantime, developed countries must also assess the amount of financial assistance they will provide to developing countries to help them reduce their emissions and adapt to the effects of climate change. Nicolas Holiber`s sculptures in used wood illustrate the threat that climate change poses to city dwellers. “A safer, safer, more prosperous and freer world.” In December 2015, this is the world that President Barack Obama imagined when he announced that the United States, along with nearly 200 other countries, had committed to the Paris Climate Agreement, an ambitious global action plan to combat climate change. The IPCC notes that climate change is limited only by “substantial and sustainable reductions in greenhouse gas emissions.” While one can discuss the benefits of using a single global temperature threshold to present dangerous climate change, the scientific community is of the opinion that any increase in global temperatures of more than 2 degrees Celsius would be an unacceptable risk – which could lead to mass extinctions, more severe droughts and hurricanes and an Arctic downpour. . . .
