The inventory is part of the Paris Agreement`s efforts to create an «increase» in emissions ambitions. In 2014, when analysts agreed that NDCs would not limit temperature rise to below 2 degrees Celsius, the global inventory brings parties together to assess the evolution of their new NCPDs so that they permanently reflect a country`s «highest possible ambitions.»  Turkey and three major oil-exporting nations are among the seven countries that have not yet ratified the 2015 Paris climate agreement. Angola joined Kyrgyzstan and Lebanon and ratified it in 2020, meaning the agreement was formally approved by 190 out of 197 countries. Since then, Turkey has argued that it is a developing country and that it has gained special circumstances that allow it to choose to provide funds. But it is still not possible to access climate money, a condition that President Recep Tayyip Erdoğan has said must change if Turkey is to ratify the agreement. On June 1, 2017, U.S. President Donald Trump announced that the United States would withdraw from the agreement.  Pursuant to Article 28, the agreement that entered into force in the United States on November 4, 2016 is the earliest possible date for the effective withdrawal of the United States on November 4, 2020. If it had decided to withdraw by leaving the UNFCCC, it could be immediately denounced (the UNFCCC entered into force for the United States in 1994) and enter into force a year later. On August 4, 2017, the Trump administration officially communicated to the United Nations that the United States intends to withdraw from the Paris Agreement as soon as it has the legal right to do so.  The invitation to resign could only be presented after the agreement entered into force for the United States for three years in 2019.   Today, that future could be threatened, as President Donald Trump prepares to withdraw the United States from the agreement – a step he will only be able to legally take after the next presidential election – as part of a larger effort to reduce decades of US environmental policy.
Fortunately, instead of giving up the fight, city, state, business and citizen leaders around the world are stepping up efforts to advance the clean energy advances needed to achieve the goals of the agreement and curb dangerous climate change, with or without the Trump administration. 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. Here are some important reasons why the agreement is so important: under the Paris Agreement, each country must define, plan and report regularly on the contribution it makes to the fight against global warming.  No mechanism obliges a country to set a specific emissions target by a set date, but each target should go beyond the targets set previously. . .
