Germany and France hopeful of better climate change agreement’s Adoption

Germany and France are hopeful that the international community might adopt an ambitious and durable climate agreement by the end of this year. They have bet that the political will of delivering such an agreement is greater than ever before.

In Berlin, at the close of the 6th Petersberg Climate Dialogue, Germany's Federal Environment Minister, Dr. Barbara Hendricks and French Foreign Minister Laurent Fabius said that they are seeing a positive outcome of the world commitment towards the adoption of a climate agreement.

So far, many countries have already committed themselves for the contribution of $100 billion every year to help finance climate change impact in the world.

Germany has promises to make a 10 billion dollars contribution to the fund, where as the US and China has agreed for the reduction of their emissions as soon as possible.

For the time being, there is going to be a UN Climate Change Conference of Parties (COP21) in Paris in December for finding a better climate agreement that would be binding on all countries for taking specific actions towards reducing green house emissions to the two degree Celsius benchmark.

The Paris agreement is going to have a mechanism in order to lift ambition levels with the motive of achieving global decarbonisation by the second half of the century. Its main objective is to make international climate policy more comparable, binding and honest.

Paris is also required to produce plausible climate finance solutions for supporting the reduction of greenhouse gases and adaptation to climate change.

In the last Petersberg Dialogue, Dr. Hendricks said, "The international community has learnt from the experience of Copenhagen in 2009 and we are now significantly better placed for a successful outcome in Paris".
