The agreement expected in Paris this year, that will be negotiated during the 21st Conference of the Parties (COP 21) in November-December 2015, is of major importance to the progress of climate negotiations. Fruit of a process started in 2011 with the launch of the Ad Hoc Working Group on the Durban Platform for Enhanced Action, it holds out hope for considerable boosting of measures taken to face up to climate change.
The Paris agreement will plot the road map for the post-2020 period. To achieve this, it could capitalise on the voluntary commitments of the Parties, which figure in the nationally-determined forecast contributions that have been submitted in vast numbers during 2015. At the same time, the COP 21 will be a chance to start ? without waiting for 2020 ? plugging the gap between the commitments made by the countries and the reductions in GHG emissions that are really necessary to prevent global warming from reaching perilous levels.
Aimed at helping delegates to understand better the challenges of the COP 21, this Summary for policymakers provides a historical perspective (Part I) and an analysis of the main negotiation issues based on the latest negotiation texts and countries? stances on these issues (Part II). Boxes and themed sheets provide the reader with all the keys to the negotiations. Although this publication is intended especially for policymakers from member countries of the International Organisation of la Francophonie (OIF), it should also be a useful tool for all other delegates.
