Apply to attend Paris Climate Change Agreement ratification event at UN Headquarters (21 September, 8:00-9:00am)
UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon has invited leaders from all countries to attend a special event on 21 September 2016 at UN Headquarters in New York from 8:00-9:00am to deposit their instruments of ratification, acceptance, approval or accession to the Paris Agreement on climate change. The event will also provide an opportunity to other countries to publicly commit to joining or ratifying the agreement before the end of 2016. The agreement 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 or acceptance with the Secretary-General. It is expected that the September event will help efforts to secure early entry into force of the agreement.
