The Paris Agreement enters into force

2016. 11. 7.

The Paris climate agreement enters into force; 30 days after the threshold of 55 countries representing 55%  of global emissions had ratified the agreement. The entry into force comes just in time before the COP 22 Marrakech Climate Conference beginning next week, where signatory countries convene the first Meeting of the Parties to the Agreement. As of 3 November 2016, 97 countries and the EU have ratified the agreement. Countries that have not ratified participate as observers in the Conference of Parties.
