Our resources for the Climate Challenge focus on the human impact of climate change: how communities around the world are affected by climate change and how people respond to and adapt to these challenges. Activities are related to a number of school curricula, including science, English and geography. Nicaragua is the youngest country to sign the agreement. Earlier, President Daniel Ortega refused to sign, saying the agreement did not go far enough to stop the rise in global temperatures. Nicaragua is a shining example of how renewable energy can be effective in sustaining a growing economy, and Ortega said countries should have stricter rules to ensure that we all tackle global problems. The 2015 UN Climate Change Conference will be held in Paris in November and December 2015. The UN`s goal is to negotiate a common binding agreement that will help the world move towards a low-carbon future. The company has prepared a comprehensive brochure for geography professors, Climate Change Updates, which gathers evidence in the 2013 Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) report. You can download the entire brochure here or the fact sheets below: Climate change is an important and historical geographical process that looks to the past, present and future. But what is the evidence of climate change? What does it cause and what impact will it have on the environment and human beings? The Royal Meteorological Society`s series on updating climate change for geography teachers helps answer these questions and serves as a summary for geography teachers and secondary and post-16 students studying climate change, based on data selected from the latest reports from the Intergovernmental Council on Climate Change. The Paris Agreement, also known as the Paris Climate Agreement, is an agreement between leaders of more than 180 countries to reduce greenhouse gas emissions and limit global temperature increases to less than 2 degrees Celsius (3.6 F) above pre-industrial levels by 2100. Ideally, the agreement aims to keep increases below 1.5 degrees Celsius (2.7 F). From 30 November to 11 December 2015, France hosted representatives from 196 countries at the end of the Un Climate Change Conference (UN), one of the largest and most ambitious global meetings ever held.
The goal was nothing less than a binding and universal agreement to limit greenhouse gas emissions to levels that would prevent global temperatures from rising more than 2oC above the lower temperature levels set before the start of the industrial revolution. For the agreement to enter into force, it took at least 55 countries that account for at least 55% of global emissions. The agreement was officially concluded in April 2016 and concluded in April 2017. After the decision of the head of state of a country to accede to the agreement, it took the approval of the national government or the adoption of a national law for that nation to participate officially. This was one of the most difficult parties to reach an agreement, because developing countries did not want to be included in the objectives and in the monitoring, because they still need to develop.
