Effectiveness Of Paris Agreement

When it comes to environmental efficiency, the PA relies entirely on national and non-governmental measures to achieve its objectives. Even under an institutionally effective agreement, the commitments presented and implemented may not be ambitious enough to achieve the objectives of the PA and civil society, and non-governmental measures may not be able to fill this gap.6 Indeed, current ambitions fall far short of what is needed to achieve the objectives of the Paris Agreement, the literature highlights in detail the lack of ambition. not only in existing NDTs, but also citing a general lack of funding and the withdrawal of the United States as the main obstacles to effectiveness. The Paris Agreement (AP) aims to strengthen the global response to climate change, set mitigation, adaptation and financing targets and define mechanisms to achieve these targets. However, the effectiveness of pa mechanisms in achieving its objectives has been questioned. This review systematically reproduces the literature on PA and ranks the available evidence of whether or not the « Paris regime » is effective. We classify our analysis into three methodologically different sections: first, we categorize the literature according to the mechanisms studied. We find a diverse literature, although clearly focused on reduction, and we identify adaptation and capacity building as obvious gaps. Second, we conduct a content analysis in which we identify common drivers, barriers, and recommendations for effectiveness.

Here we find mixed evidence, with potential drivers often qualified by more concrete barriers. Third, we use sciatometry to identify six research groups. These include loss and damage, finance, legal issues, international policies, experimental evidence, and studies to continue progress in the PA`s goals. We conclude with a narrative discussion of our findings, which presents three central themes. First, transparency is widely seen as a prerequisite for the PA`s institutional effectiveness. However, the lack of clear reporting standards and comparable information renders the PA`s transparency rules ineffective. Secondly, the effectiveness of the environment depends on national ambitions, which are currently insufficient. It is not clear to what extent the very structure of the Paris regime can lead to a sharp decline in ambitions. Finally, the PA facilitates the dissemination of standards, allows learning and the exchange of good practices. This production of common standards offers the most promising way to overcome the current lack of ambition.

One of the main successes of the AP is to offer a platform for the exchange of experiences and ideas. While the expanded transparency framework is universal, as is the global inventory to be held every five years, the framework aims to provide « integrated flexibility » to distinguish between the capacities of developed and developing countries. In this context, the Paris Agreement includes provisions to improve the capacity building framework. [58] The agreement recognises the different circumstances of some countries and notes in particular that the technical expert review for each country takes into account that country`s specific reporting capacity. [58] The agreement also develops an initiative to enhance transparency to help developing countries put in place the institutions and processes necessary to comply with the transparency framework. [58] Adaptation issues received more attention during the formation of the Paris Agreement. .
