The Paris Agreement on global action to avoid dangerous climate change could provide the impetus for the worldʼs biggest emitters of greenhouse gases to make even more ambitious commitments to cut emissions, the two parties agreed, Áder told journalists following the meeting, according to MTI.
The Hungarian Parliament voted formally on backing the Paris agreement yesterday that Áder signed at the United Nations Headquarters in New York in April. The agreement, which was signed by the leaders of 171 countries, including 60 heads of state and government, will take effect once 55 countries representing at least 55% of global emissions of gases responsible for global warming have ratified it, MTI noted.
