November 30, 2015

The nations of the world gather on Monday in Paris to reach a new and universal climate change agreement, in the knowledge that they have already delivered an almost universal set of national responses to meet the long-term climate challenge before the conference even begins.

On the eve of the COP21 conference, well over 180 countries covering almost 95 percent of global greenhouse gas emissions had delivered their national climate action plans to the UN Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC).

In another unprecedented signal of the global political will to reach an agreement, over 150 heads of state and government are coming to Paris to give their public support on Monday, the largest group of leaders ever to attend a UN event in a single day.
