Paris Agreement Expected to Enter Into Force in Advance of UN November Climate Change Summit

Union of Concerned Scientists (UCS)

WASHINGTON - Later this week, the Paris Agreement is expected to pass the emissions threshold required to ensure it will enter into force in advance of the United Nation’s annual climate change summit, slated to take place in Marrakech next month.

While the historic Paris Agreement—aimed at limiting global climate change—was adopted by nearly every nation last year, it had to be formally ratified by at least 55 countries representing at least 55 percent of global warming emissions before it could officially enter into force.
