COP24 must unleash the full potential of the Paris Agreement
COP24—held in Katowice, Poland from 2-14 December-- must unleash the full potential of the Paris Agreement by finalizing the Paris Agreement Work Programme. This will put into place the practical implementation guidelines needed to implement the historic agreement that aims to limit global warming to well under 2°C this century. The Work Programme must provide a way to track progress and ensure that climate action is transparent. This in turn will build trust and send a signal that governments are serious about addressing climate change. COP24 also needs to establish a clear way forward on climate finance to ensure greater support for climate action in developing countries.
