The world’s poorest and most vulnerable, who are least responsible for causing climate change, continue to bear the brunt of its impacts. This is an extreme global injustice, which must be further addressed at COP22. Last year, at COP21, the Paris Agreement along with the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development marked a historic milestone for the international fight against climate change.

The rapid ratification in 2016 will make the Paris Agreement enter into force in time for COP22 in Marrakesh, Morocco, an important signal of maintained political momentum. But ratification is not enough: governments need to scale-up climate action immediately and demonstrate plans to deliver on the promises made in Paris at COP22.
