5th Anniversary of the Paris Agreement

The landmark Paris Agreement was adopted to great acclaim on 12 December 2015.  Endorsed by almost all the world’s governments, the treaty establishes ambitious global goals to limit global warming to “well below” 2 degrees above pre-industrial levels, and preferably 1.5 degrees.  Global emissions must reach “net zero” in the second half of this century.  All participating countries must contribute to achieving these goals, by pledging their own carbon reducing targets along with plans to adapt to climate change and support the poorest governments in their efforts. 

Over the past 5 years, Climate Policy has published dozens of influential papers that analyse the Paris Agreement and prospects for its implementation, and that propose new and innovative ways of maximising the treaty’s impact.  On the fifth anniversary of the Paris Agreement’s adoption, we are delighted to showcase some of the best of these contributions, including three dedicated special issues.
