COP21 Pledges Require Significant Work to Achieve Climate Change Goals
195 countries and the European Union have consented to a global climate change agreement to limit the rise in global temperature to 2°C by 2100, at the United Nations’ 21st Conference of the Parties (COP21). The major focus areas of the conference included decreasing Greenhouse Gas (GHG) emissions and promoting sustainable development (UNDP, 2015). Overall, the world is taking seriously the need to assuage the effects of climate change. Despite this, COP21’s biggest obstacle will likely be reaching a committed and legally binding agreement to tackle climate imbalance that works for all countries, particularly considering the financial costs of implementing environmentally-friendly policies.
