Finally, a comprehensive assessment will allow states to jointly assess the results of mitigation and adaptation strategies and draw conclusions about the effectiveness of the methods used. The meeting, which will be held every five years from 2023, is expected to facilitate the convergence of national emissions strategies, which are consistent with the 1.5 to 2oC target. Paris has succeeded as a new type of climate agreement. The regulatory framework can help make it a strong and sustainable regime, provided it remains true to the Paris agreement itself. Council adopted the decision on the EU`s ratification of the Paris Agreement. The decision will be tabled in the coming days with the Secretary-General of the United Nations. Eu ratification will come into force on the date the decision is tabled. As part of COP21, France`s strategy includes a wide range of high-level actors (French President, Special Envoy for the Planet, Minister of Foreign Affairs, Climate Ambassadors) supported by an interdepartmental multidisciplinary team. The conclusions of the Environment Council underlined the importance of using the appropriate instruments to meet Member States` commitments. The EU will continue to implement its climate policy, outlined in the EU`s 2030 climate and energy policy, which was adopted by the European Council in October 2014.

The main objective is to reduce national greenhouse gas emissions by at least 40% by 2030 compared to 1990 levels. First, the Paris Agreement finally set out a long-term path to combating climate change, based on (i) ambitious targets both to keep global average temperature rise well below 2 degrees Celsius and to achieve zero net emissions in the second half of this century; (ii) emissions targets that are constantly reviewed and updated in five-year cycles; and (iii) a call for countries to chart their long-term strategies for low-end development by the middle of the century. During COP23, progress was made in developing guidelines for the implementation of the Paris Agreement. Many countries have stated in their INDCs that they intend to use some form of international emissions trading scheme to implement their contributions.
