Paris agreement22 April 2016 – As 175 world leaders signed the Paris Agreement at United Nations Headquarters today, Secretary-GeneralBan Ki-moon said the next critical step is to ensure that the landmark accord for global action on climate change enters into force as soon as possible.

“Today is an historic day,” Mr. Ban toldreporters at a press conference following the opening ceremony of the signing event. “This is by far the largest number of countries ever to sign an international agreement on a single day.”

According to the UN chief, the participation by so many countries and the attendance by so many world leaders leaves “no doubt” that the international community is determined to take climate action. He also welcomed the strong presence of the private sector and civil society, saying they are “crucial to realizing the great promise of the Paris Agreement.”

Adopted in Paris by the 196 Parties to the UN Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC) at a conference known as (COP21) last December, the Agreement’s objective is to limit global temperature rise to well below 2 degrees Celsius, and to strive for 1.5 degrees Celsius. It will enter into force 30 days after at least 55 countries, accounting for 55 per cent of global greenhouse gas emissions, deposit their instruments of ratification.

“If all the countries that have signed today take the next step at the national level and join the Agreement, the world will have met the requirement needed for the Paris Agreement to enter into force,” Mr. Ban highlighted, congratulating the 15 Parties that have already deposited their instruments for ratification.

These Parties include Barbados, Belize, Fiji, Grenada, Maldives, Marshall Islands, Mauritius, Nauru, Palau, Palestine, Saint Kitts and Nevis, Saint Lucia, Samoa, Somalia and Tuvalu.

Speaking alongside the Secretary-General, French President François Hollande applauded all those who made it possible to reach the second stage of the process – the signing of the document.



PADES supports the Sustainable Development Goals

Feeding the Hungry Operation

PADES' FOOD PROGRAM aims at combatting hungry in Africa and not allows any child to go to bed hungry.

That is unfortunately the sad reality of several African children.

PADES’ FOOD BANK PROGRAM has launched today ‘’ FEED THE HUNGRY OPERATION’’ and is seeking to all those of good will to bring their contributions to feed the hungry.

Did you know that almost 70% of African households live with less than 1.25 USD per day and just 1 USD could provide a lunch to a Kid and with 5 USD, you could feed a family of five and with 10 USD you could provide a lunch to a household of seven people ?

Make a big difference today by making a donation of 1 USD or more a kid
