Paris Agreement Enforcement

The implementation of the agreement by all Member States is assessed every five years and the first evaluation will take place in 2023. The result will be used as a contribution to member States` new national contributions. [30] The inventory will not be one of the contributions/performance of each country, but of a collective analysis of what has been achieved and what remains to be done. These rules of transparency and accountability are similar to those adopted in other international agreements. While the system does not carry financial penalties, the requirements are aimed at easily tracking the progress of individual nations and promoting a sense of global group pressure, which discourages any hesitation between countries that might consider it. All but two nations – Syria and Nicaragua – have signed the Paris Agreement and, at present, 172 have passed the final stage of ratification. .
