The authors of the agreement set a withdrawal schedule that President Trump must follow – which prevents him from irreparably harming our climate. In 1992, President George H.W. Bush, along with 107 other heads of state, adopted a number of environmental agreements at the Rio Earth Summit in Brazil, including the UNFCCC framework, which is still in force today. The international treaty aims to prevent dangerous human interference in Earth`s climate systems in the long term. The Pact does not set greenhouse gas emission limits for each country and does not include enforcement mechanisms, but rather creates a framework for international negotiations on future agreements or protocols to set binding emission targets. Participating countries meet annually at a Conference of the Parties (COP) to assess their progress and continue discussions on how best to tackle climate change. NDCs become NDCs – Nationally Determined Contributions – once a country formally joins the agreement. There are no specific requirements on how countries should reduce their emissions or to what extent, but there have been political expectations about the nature and severity of individual countries` targets. As a result, national plans vary considerably in scope and ambition, largely reflecting each country`s capacities, level of development and contribution to emissions over time. China, for example, has pledged to level its CO2 emissions by 2030 at the latest and reduce CO2 emissions per unit of gross domestic product (GDP) by 60 to 65 percent by 2030 compared to 2005 levels. India has set a target of reducing emissions intensity by 33-35% from 2005 levels by 2030 and producing 40% of its electricity from non-fossil sources. France was one of the countries that voluntarily agreed to present its SDG implementation strategy in 2016, less than a year after the adoption of the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development. it reaffirmed its vision of a climate policy integrated into the national sustainable development strategy.
