COP21: United Nations Conference on Climate, Paris THE TEXT OF THE AGREEMENT

Agreement formally adopted by the 195 nations attending the United Nations Conference on Climate in Paris.

The key points of the new pact:

  • Limiting global warming to "well below 2°C above pre-industrial levels" and "pursue efforts" to limit the temperature increase to 1.5°C.

  • Mobilizing 100 billion $ per year until 2020 for countries in the developing world.

  • Emissions: Every country in the world must set out its plans to avert climate change every five years. Countries should reach a "global peaking of greenhouse gas emissions" as soon as possible and "achieve a balance between anthropogenic emissions by sources and removals by sinks of greenhouse gases in the second half of this century".



The document will be open for signature United Nations headquarters from April 22, 2016 to April 21, 2017.
