The government could send a strong signal at the start of the new year by declaring its commitment to carbon neutrality by 2050 and promising to formally submit a new NDC as soon as it is able to do so. (In the meantime, to meet the technical requirements of the NDC agreement, it could provide a substitute or provisional NDC, such as reintroducing the Obama administration`s 2025 target. Ideally, it would then be able to provide an ambitious and credible NDC in time for COP 26 late for December 2021 in Glasgow. The Paris Agreement is the world`s first comprehensive climate agreement.  The Paris Agreement provides for a number of binding procedural obligations. The parties are committed to preparing, communicating and maintaining successive NDCs; „domestic mitigation measures“ to achieve their NDCs; report regularly on their emissions and on progress in implementing their NDCs. The agreement also provides that the successive NDCs of each party „will represent a progression“ beyond their previous one and „reflect its highest possible ambitions.“ Obtaining their NDC by a party is not a legally binding obligation. The Paris Agreement provides a sustainable framework that guides global efforts for decades to come. The aim is to create a continuous cycle that prevents countries from increasing their ambitions over time. In order to encourage increased ambitions, the agreement defines two interconnected processes, each with a five-year cycle. The first is a „comprehensive state of affairs“ to assess the collective progress made in achieving the long-term goals of the agreement.
The parties will then submit new NDCs „informed of the results of the global inventory.“ As host and president of COP21, France is committed to supporting a multilateral negotiation process and listening to all stakeholders in order to reach an agreement: countries are also working to reach the „global peak in greenhouse gas emissions“ as soon as possible. The agreement has been described as an incentive and engine for the sale of fossil fuels.  The objective of the agreement is to reduce global warming described in Article 2 by improving the „implementation“ of the UNFCCC through the following measures: Funding is essential to support emerging economies and support the transition to carbon-free economies.
