G20 Paris Agreement

However, President-elect Joe Biden has already pledged to resume the deal on his first day in office. “I did my utmost in 2017 to convince Mr. Trump to ratify the Paris Agreement,” Macron added. I can only regret the American position. Merkel welcomed the deal and told Japanese reporters that “this process cannot be reversed.” After a complex resolution process, the United States officially left the Paris Agreement on November 4. “We are focused on how to save citizens and the economy from the pandemic; It is equally important to focus on tackling climate change,” Modi said on the second day of the two-day event hosted by Saudi Arabia. The report predicts that climate commitments and targets will lead to a warming of 2.7°C by the end of the century, 0.1% less than in 2018, but well above the Paris target of a warming of 1.5°C. On 7th and 8th July the President of the European Council, Donald Tusk, and the President of the European Commission, Jean-Claude Juncker, met with other Heads of State and Government of the Group of Twenty (G20) for a summit in Hamburg. It was the first global meeting of its kind after the US government announced its withdrawal from the Paris Agreement on climate change. In a communiqué from heads of state and government adopted at the meeting, all G20 members, including the United States, agree on the importance of reducing greenhouse gas emissions, including through clean and efficient energy systems.
