    The Paris Agreement regarding climate change will enter into force on November 4.

    MOSCOW (Sputnik) — The Paris Agreement regarding climate change will enter into force on November 4, with 94 out of 197 countries having ratified the climate pact, including eight out of the top ten emitters.

    The Paris Agreement on climate change was adopted in December 2015 at the 21st UN Climate Change Conference (COP21).

    The deal aims to limit global average temperatures to less than 2 degrees Celsius above pre-industrial levels. It also aims to create more financing to curb greenhouse gas emissions and support more climate-resilient development.
