The Paris Agreement also provides, for the first time in an international climate agreement, that we must “strive” to limit the temperature increase to 1.5oC (Article 2). In Paris, the IPCC was invited to present a new special report (known as SR1.5) in 2018 on the effects of global warming of 1.5oC above pre-industrial levels. In addition, the parties are working to improve global greenhouse gas emissions “as soon as possible” (Article 4). At COP 15 in Copenhagen in 2009, it was hoped that a new legally binding agreement would be reached in line with the Kyoto Protocol. Although the meeting did not live up to these expectations, the Copenhagen agreement notably recognized the need to reduce global greenhouse gas emissions in order to limit global temperature rise to less than 2 degrees Celsius. If there is no rule for a specific source in the AGLC, you should adjust the nearest adjustment rule. This quote should be based on common sense and the following principles: the main international agreements on climate change are linked below. The full text of the treaty is linked and the UN treaty website contains details on participants and important data. Australia`s INDC said that “Australia will achieve a macroeconomic target of reducing greenhouse gas emissions by 26-28% from 2005 levels by 2030.” The comparison of objectives between Member States is made difficult by the use of different base years and by different target years.

For example, for comparison, “As long as you are clear and consistent, you can`t do anything wrong.” Thomson Reuters non Thomson Reuters (Professional) Australia Ltd Figure 1: Australia`s climate policy and its level of greenhouse gas control The reference style of the ANU College of Law is the Australian Guide to Legal Quote (AGLC4).
