Paris Agreement Rwanda

The ratification will take place as the world prepares for a meeting in Marrakech for the 22nd Conference of the Parties to the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change, with a new dynamic for the fight against climate change – thanks to the successful adoption of the Kigali amendment to the Montreal Protocol. The Kigali amendment will prevent warming of up to 0.5 degrees Celsius by the end of the century by gradually relocating the use of hazardous greenhouse gases known as hydrofluorocarbons (HFCs). This historic agreement is proof of the practical measures that the international community intends to promote in Morocco next month.

The first meeting of the parties to the Paris Agreement will take place in Marrakech in November, in conjunction with the 22nd Conference of the Parties to the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change. Subject to technical, financial and technological support from richer nations, the small domestic country said emissions could be reduced by 38% over the next decade. Rwanda`s economy is growing rapidly. The World Bank described the country before the Covid-19 explosion as the “centre of an economic boom” with growth of more than 10% in 2019. Among the priority areas identified by the Rwandan government in the plan is increased funding for projects that contribute to reducing emissions; Strengthen the country`s ability to withstand the effects of climate change; rapid progress towards green industry and services, sustainable land use and water resource management, disaster risk management and improved health, which improve the social protection network against vulnerability to climate change. He spoke for the launch of the first Africa Green Growth Forum, which opened on Monday in Kigali, the capital of Rwanda.

Countries agreed that the new climate commitments should be “progress” that goes beyond previous commitments and would be the highest possible ambitions. And there are high expectations for governments to increase their climate plans this year to close the ambition gap and keep global temperature rise “well below 2C.” Rwanda on Monday launched a nationally defined partnership plan to guide the implementation of the country`s commitments under the Paris climate change agreement.
