The Paris Accord is a huge step forward in international climate change diplomacy
On Friday in New York, the countries of the world, including India, will sign the Paris Accord on Climate Change, to which all had agreed during the climate negotiations in Paris in December 2015. The signing underlines the intention of countries to adhere to the negotiated accord. Each country will also have to carry out a separate formal process to ratify the accord; that is, to legally adopt it at a national level to enable implementation.
