The agreement, which came into force on 4 November 2016, and 125 countries ratified it on 7 December 2016. Under the agreement, developing countries will take action to reduce and limit greenhouse gas emissions by 2020. With a reciprocal concentration of all countries, it was decided to limit the increase in the average temperature of the world`s atmosphere to a maximum of 2 degrees above pre-industrial levels (1850) while trying not to exceed 1.5 degrees (more details). Today, the European Union met with the project`s implementation partner – the United Nations Development Programme (UNDP), representatives of the Government of Armenia and various stakeholders during the project creation workshop to discuss priorities and next steps in the implementation of the EU4Climate project. The budget will also contribute to Armenia`s alignment with EU climate legislation, the integration of climate change into policies and the development of Armenia`s carbon-poor future. Overall, the meeting served as an effective platform for the exchange of views between national and international actors and provided a fertile ground for further discussions to begin a next phase of the NDC update process. “Armenia is actively addressing climate change issues and has ratified the Paris Agreement.
The government has developed a national climate change policy that leads to an approach to the implementation of state climate policy by 2030, the development and approval of national adaptation strategies and plans, and other measures that are part of the country`s sustainable and resilient development. Support from international partners, particularly the EU, UNDP and other development partners, has been instrumental in these achievements.
