1. Climate Change as a Global Challenge

Climate change is one of the major challenges of our time, and posing a substantial threat to human security, stability, and prosperity across our societies. The Paris Agreement was adopted at the 21st session of the Conference of the Parties (COP21) of the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC) in December 2015, which aims at holding the increase in the global average temperature to well below 2°C above pre-industrial levels and striving to limit the temperature increase to 1.5°C above pre-industrial levels.

Without urgent actions on climate change, there will be considerable damage to the global economy and society due to increasing natural disasters, disappearing coastal land due to sea-level rise, loss and degradation of natural ecosystems and biodiversity, and growing risks of infectious diseases and food security. Addressing climate change is an indispensable factor for sustainable development.
