Since the industrial revolution, human activity has led to an increase in CO2 concentration in the atmosphere resulting in heat being trapped in the lower atmosphere. This global climate change has led to weather extremities such as floods, rising sea levels and disasters like Hurricane Katrina severely affecting our surrounding natural environment, human communities and even human lives, national economies and countries. The majority of those disasters happen in developing countries costing the lives and properties of many. However the poorest and most vulnerable people are affected the most from these changes.
There have been attempts from individual countries or regions such as Freiburg, Germany, for an adoption of more sustainable life-styles which would eventually reduce greenhouse emissions such as promotion of public transport and generally a low carbon economy.
The UN is called to address this global challenge and come up with feasible resolutions which acknowledge the issue and suggest possible regulations that would minimize the effect of climate change.
At the COP21 in 2015 the Paris Agreement was adopted by a number of countries wishing to limit the global temperature rise to well below 2 degrees Celsius. What will be the next step and what progress has been made since then?
