Nearly 200 Nations At Climate Conference, Including U.S., Reach Deal To Implement Paris Agreement

New York Times: Climate Negotiators Reach an Overtime Deal to Keep Paris Pact Alive
“Diplomats from nearly 200 countries reached a deal on Saturday to keep the Paris climate agreement alive by adopting a detailed set of rules to implement the pact. The deal, struck after an all-night bargaining session, will ultimately require every country in the world to follow a uniform set of standards for measuring their planet-warming emissions and tracking their climate policies. … It also calls on richer countries to be clearer about the aid they intend to offer to help poorer nations install more clean energy or build resilience against natural disasters. … The United States agreed to the deal despite President Trump’s vow to abandon the Paris Agreement…” (Plumer, 12/15).

Additional coverage of the COP24 conference outcomes is available from Devex, The Guardian, Wall Street Journal, and Washington Post.
