More talk? More action!
After 30 years and 25 such talks, COP26 will likely result in too little action from the conference parties. Alas, we have come to expect disappointment from these UN Conferences of Parties.
It's now much too late to halt global warming to the defined targets!
Despite this, we must continue to advocate for action. We must continue to petition the 26th UN Climate Change Conference of the Parties (COP26) – government officials, business leaders, scientists and activists – to take the urgent and aggressive action needed to halt global warming.
See All Countries (https://seedis.org/countries/) for the action your country has taken so far and compare your country with the others. Contact your government officials and business leaders to advocate their taking the urgent measures needed to mitigate the adverse effect of climate change.
The Paris Agreement adopted in 2015 by the United Nations aims to strengthen the ability of countries to take the necessary measures. It calls for global economic and social transformation based on the best available science and works on a 5-year cycle of increasingly ambitious climate action to be taken by the countries.
Under the agreement, each country must determine, plan and regularly report on measures it takes to mitigate global warming and strengthen its commitment over time. For this, the countries are legally obligated to prepare, communicate and submit nationally determined contributions (NDCs) – their plans for climate action.
The Paris Agreement which is a legally binding international treaty entered into force on 4 November 2016 and has been ratified by 189 countries to date. While all countries have agreed to work towards achieving the goals and some of the elements of the agreement are legally binding, the achievement of the NDCs by that country is not.
The United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (UN SDGs) are the blueprint. The responsibility for SDG implementation is state-centric, which is subject to the interplay of state sovereignty, self-regulation and national circumstances. SDG implementation and success depend on each country's sustainable development policies, plans, and programs.
When developing NDCs and adopting domestic measures to implement them, countries consider how they relate to the SDGs of the 2030 Agenda. All stakeholders – the public sector, the private sector, and civil society – are all called on to contribute to the achievement of the SDGs.
