Turkey intends to ratify the Paris Agreement.

Turkey wants to ratify the Paris Agreement. | Posted on 2021-09-22 20:28

Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan told the United Nations that his country will ratify the Paris Agreement next month. He thus intends to display Turkey's will to step up the fight against global warming: "We intend to present the Paris climate agreement to Parliament for ratification next month (...) before the conference. of the United Nations on Climate Change ”. Recep Tayyip Erdogan recalled that his country had signed the Paris Agreement but had not ratified it so far "because of the injustices linked to the distribution of obligations and the sharing of the burden" , in terms of reduction of polluting emissions. Turkey, which signed the Paris Agreement in April 2016, considers that efforts must be differentiated between industrialized countries, a category to which it belongs.

During this year, and like other Mediterranean countries, Turkey was not spared by extreme climatic episodes: periods of drought then violent forest fires and torrential rains leading to devastating and deadly floods.

Remember that the next COP 26 to be held in Glasgow in November will be in the spotlight. The latest appalling IPCC report as well as recent statements by UN Secretary General Antonio Guterres will have a special resonance there. For Mr. Guterres, the world is not on the right path at all. In the current state of the results produced by the various signatory countries, "the world is on the catastrophic path of 2.7 ° C", adding that "if we do not change course collectively, there is a great risk of failure. of COP26 ” .
