Analysis of the commitments made by countries concludes that, although they bring us closer to the 2-degree target, they are not ambitious enough to achieve this. 197 countries adopted the Paris Agreement at COP21 on 12 December 2015 in Paris. The agreement, which came into force less than a year later, aims to significantly reduce global greenhouse gas emissions and limit global temperature rise to 2 degrees Celsius this century, while continuing to limit the rise to 1.5 degrees. At its meeting on 10 November 2015, the ECOFIN Council adopted conclusions on climate finance. The findings recognize the role of climate finance as a means of keeping global warming below 2 degrees Celsius and towards a transition to climate-resilient greenhouse gas emissions and sustainable economies. They also focused on the EU`s contribution to climate finance, which amounts to $100 billion a year, from a multitude of sources promised by industrialized countries by 2020. Ministers agreed that significant resources were needed to help developing countries cope adequately with climate change. On August 4, 2017, the Trump administration officially announced to the United Nations that the United States intends to withdraw from the Paris Agreement as soon as it is legally entitled to it.  The formal declaration of resignation could not be submitted until after the agreement for the United States came into force on November 4, 2019 for a three-year date.   On November 4, 2019, the U.S. government filed the withdrawal notice with the Secretary-General of the United Nations, custodian of the agreement, and formally withdrew from the Paris Agreement a year later, when the withdrawal came into effect.
 After the November 2020 elections, President-elect Joe Biden promised to reinstate the United States in the Paris Agreement for his first day in office and renew the U.S. commitment to climate change mitigation.   The president`s promise to renegotiate the international climate agreement has always been a smokescreen, the oil industry has a red phone at the Home Office, and will Trump bring food trucks to Faithful Old? Today, 189 countries have joined the Paris Agreement. In 2013, at COP 19 in Warsaw, the parties were invited to make their «nationally planned contributions» (INDC) to the Paris Agreement in due course prior to COP 21. These bids represent the mitigation targets set by each country for the period from 2020. The final CNN was submitted by each party after their formal ratification or adoption of the agreement and recorded in a UNFCCC registry. To date, 186 parties have submitted their first NdCs. EU heads of state and government welcomed the historic climate agreement reached at COP21 in Paris and called on the Commission and the Council to assess the results by March 2016, including the 2030 climate and energy framework, and to prepare for the next steps. Turkey and three major oil-exporting nations are among the seven countries that have yet to ratify the 2015 Paris climate agreement.
