International Group 2

Introduction

The Paris Climate Agreement is the most effective way to address climate change.


Action Plan

Within the UN create an agreement or update the existing Paris Agreement but legally binding [global carbon law]. Creating target goals with specific action plans to switch to eco-friendly alternatives such as solar energy, poverty relief, etc. Include in the action plan a need to create economic incentives [tax breaks, etc.] for industries in each countries. Understand that some countries may not be able to actively reach these goals and either create a fund to support these countries or multiple action plans for different types of countries [developing vs. underdeveloped]. Work with the World Trade Organization to create trade agreements that give incentives for being sustainable.

NGO - Huge proliferation at all levels of environmental organizations. Collaborate with each other in order to increase pressure on states to meet these action plans. Corporations - Push states to have corporations to have eco-friendly sister companies. Push states to have industry produce eco-friendly resources - solar panels, etc.
