The Paris Agreement is an international agreement of 2015 to combat climate change and to accelerate and intensify the actions and investments needed for a sustainable low carbon future.

The Paris Agreement’s central aim is to strengthen the global response to the threat of climate change.

Its goal is to limit global warming to well below 2 degrees Celsius - preferably to 1.5 degrees Celsius - compared with pre-industrial levels.

The Paris Agreement is also known as the Paris Climate Agreement, the Paris Accords, or the Paris Climate Accords.
