Turkey Ndc Paris Agreement

Since then, Turkey has argued that it is a developing country and that it has gained special circumstances that allow it to choose to provide funds. But it is still not possible to access climate money, a condition that President Recep Tayyip Erdoğan has said must change if Turkey is to ratify the agreement. Once ratified, the agreement will require governments to submit their emission reduction plans. They will eventually have to do their part to keep global temperatures well below 2°C above the pre-industrial period and « make efforts » to limit them to 1.5°C. Turkey and three major oil-exporting nations are among seven countries that have yet to ratify the 2015 Paris climate agreement. Angola joined Kyrgyzstan and Lebanon and ratified it in 2020, meaning the agreement was formally approved by 190 out of 197 countries. Beyond the Energy Efficiency Action Plan and renewable energy auctions, Turkey has made little progress in implementing climate change measures and has yet to ratify the Paris Agreement. In September 2019, ahead of the UN climate change summit, Turkey considered the financial package proposed by Germany and France, with the support of the United Nations and the World Bank, to address Turkey`s concerns about ratifying the agreement, but with no result so far. . . .
