The administration of US President Joe Biden intends to provide information in April on plans to reduce harmful emissions in the country under the Paris Climate Agreement. This was announced on Monday by US Secretary of State Anthony Blinken at a video briefing organized by the press center for foreign journalists in New York. The US foreign minister noted that Biden’s climate advisers are preparing data on “emission targets under the Paris Agreement on climate “. Blinken said the administration expects the data “to be released in April.” The secretary of state admitted that this will coincide with the international summit on the fight against climate change. The US plans to hold it online on April 22-23.
The Paris Agreement was adopted on December 12, 2015, following the 21st conference of the Framework Convention on Climate Change. The participating countries have agreed to prevent the average temperature on the planet from rising by more than two degrees Celsius by 2100 compared to the pre-industrial era. The agreement, in particular, provides for a reduction in greenhouse gas emissions.
Biden on the first day of his tenure as president signed a decree on the return of the country to the fulfillment of obligations under this agreement.
