Turkish parliament ratifies Paris Climate Agreement

06:19 07 October 2021 Author :  

The Turkish parliament on Wednesday ratified the Paris Climate Agreement to contribute to the global efforts against climate change.

All political parties in parliament gave Yes vote to the agreement.

On Dec. 12, 2015, parties to the UN Framework Convention on Climate Change reached an agreement to fight climate change and achieve a sustainable low-carbon future at the UN Climate Change Conference (COP21) in Paris.

The Paris Agreement, defined as "a bridge between today's policies and climate-neutrality before the end of the 21st century," seeks to strengthen the global response to the threat of climate change by stopping global average temperatures from rising more than 2 degrees Celsius above pre-industrial levels over the next century and to pursue efforts to limit the temperature increase even further to 1.5 degrees Celsius if possible./aa
