Summary "The Paris Agreement was adopted under the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC) in December 2015. Signed by 196 parties, it has since become a key reference point in global discussions on climate change, national efforts to formulate climate policies, and business investment decisions. United Nations Secretary General Ban Ki-Moon has described the Agreement as a "peace pact with the planet" and U.S. President Barack Obama labeled it a "turning point" in the fight against climate change. At the very least, it represents - in the word of one contributor to this book - "a substantial improvement in global climate governance""-- Provided by publisher
