All countries in the Paris Agreement now have policies to fight climate change

The London School of Economics has found that all 197 countries which signed the landmark Paris Agreement now have at least one law in place to limit global temperatures.

The new research is a ‘snapshot’ into global trends on climate legislation and shows the significant uptake in new laws and rules over the past 20 years.

According to the researchers, there are now more than 1,500 climate laws and policies in place around the world. Of these, 106 were introduced since the Paris Agreement was signed in December 2015.
