Katowice (Poland), Dec 11 (UNB) - Bangladesh and a number of other nations affected by climate change have called for the formation of a guideline to implement the Paris Agreement.
The call was made at the high-level meeting of the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (COP24) in Poland.
“Affected countries have been pressuring the developed nations to implement the Paris Agreement,” said Abdullah Al Mohsin, Bangladesh’s environment and climate change secretary heading the country’s delegation. “We will continue the discussion in the last three days of COP24.”
The plan on Nationally Determined Contribution under mitigation, adaptation, loss and damage, climate induced displacement, finance, technology framework, transparency framework, global stocktake were also discussed in the meeting.
Mohsin hoped some rules or guideline will be formed to implement the Paris agreement—a historic deal that united the world's nations in a single agreement on tackling climate change.
At Monday’s COP24 meeting, speakers emphasised urgent action by developed countries to keep global warming below 1.5 degree Celsius.
Negotiators from around the world met in Poland on December 2 for talks on climate change – three years after landmark Paris deal that set a goal of keeping global warming well below 2 degrees Celsius.
