Paris 2015

Getting a global agreement on climate change
Paris 2015
In December 2015, 196 countries met to sign a new climate change agreement.

Our September 2014 report in conjunction with Christian Aid, Greenpeace, RSPB and WWF set out what needed to be agreed in Paris, what had changed since the first Rio summit in 1992 and why a global agreement was necessary.
The Paris agreement entered into force in December 2016.
