Inès 's Talking ABout the " Paris Climate Conference "

Today Inès has spoken about the 21st climate conference (2015 Paris Climate Conference – COP21)

COP21, aka the 2015 Paris Climate Conference, will be one of the largest international conferences ever held in France. In this context, France is facing a two-fold challenge:

  • as the host country, it will be responsible for hosting thousands of delegates and observers under the aegis of the United Nations, for two weeks, in the best possible conditions;
  • as the country taking over the COP Presidency, it will need to act as a facilitator among all parties to the negotiations, in order to create an atmosphere of confidence, bring viewpoints together and ensure that an agreement is adopted unanimously.

This Conference is crucial because it must result in an international climate agreement enabling us to limit global warming to below 2°C.

It will be necessary to reach a certain number of decisions in December 2015, building on the work carried out at COP20 in Lima.

Firstly, an ambitious, binding agreement on climate change that applies to all countries.

Secondly, intended national determined contributions (iNDC) representing the investment that each country feels able to make. Climate finance will also be a crucial component; in this regard, a milestone has been reached with the initial capitalization of the Green Climate Fund, amounting to $9.3 billion, including nearly $1 billion from France. Lastly, local and regional initiatives developed by local governments, civil society organizations and businesses will boost mobilization and supplement the contributions made by states.

Hence Inès's question :  Do you think this conference is important ? Why ?

To my mind, this conference is really important because global warming is something which we should focus on. I heard that in Paris, some cars might be forbidden because they are too harmful to the environment. I'm worried about that, it's dangerous for our planet and our health, we have to do something

To my mind, this conference is important to realize that it's very important to careful about our environment (especially the global warming) but it's a shame that's we didn't know more about that type of conferences...

In my opinion, this conference is probably great, useful and enriching but it doESn't seem like the kind of public conferences, that's why we don't  haven't heard much about it.However we should heard pay attention toand be informed of that kind of event, i mean cultural event. Global warming is one of the biggest problemS of about which we should care.

I think it's important because some persons don't realized the real danger of global warming and that we have to react to save our earth !

17. Le 03 juin 2015, 23:21 par Betty

I totally agree with Mallaury and Mathilde to say that this conference is very important. Everybody don't realize about the gravity of the global warming. And it's something we have to talk about more because it can have a big impact for the futurE of our planet and our futurE if we do nothing...

Personally, I think that this conference is a very important and a nice thing, but it doESn't have to be the only ONE. People have started slowly to worry about the environment, but things have to change faster and real actions must be taken.

20. Le 10 juin 2015, 18:37 par Joanna

Yes this is very important. The environment is a very important subject and it's a duty to talk about it.
