Africa: Countries Urged to Submit Climate Action Plans Ahead of UN Conference in Paris
Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon is eager to get countries to submit as soon as possible their action plans that will form the basis of the new universal climate change agreement to be adopted in December in Paris, a senior United Nations official dealing with the issue said today.
Janos Pasztor, Assistant Secretary-General on Climate Change, told a press conference at United Nations Headquarters that, to date, 62 out of 194 parties to the UN Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC) have submitted their Intended Nationally Determined Contribution (INDC).
The Secretary-General is "eager" to get all countries to submit their climate action plans, Mr. Pasztor said, adding "the earlier we get them the better."
