If all EU countries ratify the agreement, the climate change conference, which opens on 7 November in Marrakech, Morocco, could be the first meeting of the parties to the Paris agreement, including the EU and Slovakia. This would allow the parties to be involved in decision-making on critical issues related to the implementation of the agreement. The Paris Agreement came into force in November 2016. This is the first global agreement that commits all countries to more ambitious targets for reducing greenhouse gas emissions. Norway was one of the first countries to ratify the agreement. The Paris Agreement gives reason to hope that countries around the world can work together to prevent dangerous climate change. EU environment ministers have called for the Paris Agreement, reached last December at COP21, to be ratified as soon as possible, both at EU and Member State level. The United States has joined China in formally ratifying the Paris agreement on reducing global warming emissions, the world`s two largest economies said on Saturday, which could help bring the pact into force before the end of the year.

When world leaders agreed last December in Paris on a pioneering agreement to limit global warming, it was touted as the start of an irreversible path to a low-carbon economy. Since 2007, Norway has allocated up to NOK 3 billion per year for its redD aid budget (reducing emissions from deforestation and forest degradation in developing countries). Mr Kiska represents Slovakia at the current session of the Un General Assembly in New York, where he intends to send a strong message this week and to invite countries in which the ratification process is still ongoing to complete the ratification process as soon as possible. Extreme weather events are more frequent than before, sea levels are rising, and droughts and floods are more frequent. Air pollution alone claims 7 million lives a year. Climate change and environmental damage are destroying ecosystems that have negative effects on development, health and food production.
