As host of the cop26 talks, Britain is redoubling diplomatic efforts for next year`s conference. The French government has brought all its diplomatic power to Paris, asked its ambassadors in each country to make climate change its top priority, and sent ministers from around the world to get support. It is rare that there is a consensus among almost all nations on a single subject. But with the Paris Agreement, world leaders agreed that climate change was fueled by human behavior, that it posed a threat to the environment and humanity as a whole, and that global action was needed to stop it. In addition, a clear framework has been put in place for all countries to make emission reduction commitments and strengthen these measures over time. With these conclusions, environment ministers sent a strong political signal, which forms the basis of the EU`s position at the next UN climate change conference (COP24) to be held in Katowice (Poland) in December. The contributions that each country should make to achieve the global goal are defined by that country and are called national contributions (NDCs).  Article 3 requires that they be “ambitious”, that they “represent progress over time” and that they be defined “with a view to achieving the objective of this Agreement”. Contributions are reported every five years and recorded by the UNFCCC secretariat.  Any other goal should be more ambitious than the previous one, called the “principle of progression”.  Countries can cooperate and pool their national contributions. The planned national contributions, promised at the 2015 Climate Change Conference, serve, unless otherwise specified, as the initial national contribution. Ultimately, all parties have recognized the need to “prevent, minimize and treat loss and damage,” but in particular any mention of indemnification or liability is excluded.
 The Convention also adopts the Warsaw International Mechanism for Loss and Damage, an institution that will attempt to answer questions relating to the classification, management and sharing of responsibilities in the event of loss.  (c) reconciling financing flows with a path towards low greenhouse gas emissions and climate-resilient development. . . . . . .
