The overall objective of the Agreement includes strengthening “the global response to the threat of climate change, in the context of sustainable development and efforts to eradicate poverty, including by holding the increase in global average temperature to well below 2°C above pre-industrial levels and pursuing efforts to limit the temperature increase to 1.5°C above pre-industrial levels; Increasing the ability to adapt to the adverse impacts of climate change and foster climate resilience and low greenhouse gas emissions development, in a manner that does not threaten food production; and Making finance flows consistent with a pathway towards low greenhouse gas emissions and climate-resilient development”.
