Folder United nations conference on climate change COP21

France will chair and host the 21st Conference of the Parties to the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (COP21/CMP11), from 30 November to 11 December 2015.

The aim is to build a “Paris Climate Alliance”, capable of keeping the average global temperature rise below 2°C compared to pre-industrial levels and adapt our societies to existing disruption.

This Alliance will have four components:

1-The negotiation of a universal agreement in accordance with the Durban mandate, establishing rules and mechanisms capable of gradually increasing its ambition in order to keep within the 2°C limit.

2-The presentation by all countries of their national contributions prior to COP21, in order to generate momentum and demonstrate that all States are moving forward, based on their national realities, in the same direction.

3-The financial aspect, which should enable support for developing countries and financing of the transition towards low-carbon, resilient economies before and after 2020.

4-The strengthening of the commitments of civil society and non-governmental stakeholders and the multi-partner initiatives of the Agenda of Solutions or Lima-Paris Action Agenda , in order to involve all stakeholders and begin concrete actions prior to the entry into force of the future agreement in 2020.
