Upon the entry into force of the Paris Agreement, countries that have deposited their instruments of ratification, acceptance or approval will be considered parties to the Convention. The parties enjoy the rights and privileges under the Agreement and are subject to their obligations under the Agreement. Only the Parties to the Agreement are responsible for governance, oversight and decision-making. It is not possible to predict exactly when the agreement will enter into force, as this depends on both the speed with which countries are able to complete their national approval procedures and the political will to do so. If both conditions are met for entry into force by October 7 of this year, the Paris Agreement will be signed on October 6. November 2016, which means that the first meeting of the Conference of the Parties to the Paris Agreement in conjunction with COP22 would take place in Morocco at the end of this year. However, this may not be the case, as many parties need time to complete their respective national approval procedures. While the Paris Agreement ultimately aims to limit global temperature rise to 1.5 degrees Celsius this century, numerous studies evaluating each country`s voluntary commitments in Paris show that the cumulative effect of these emission reductions will not be large enough to keep temperatures below this ceiling. In fact, the targets set by countries should limit the future temperature rise to 2.7 to 3.7 degrees Celsius. Current assessments of countries` performance under their Paris climate goals show that some countries are already failing to meet their commitments. Although containment and adaptation require increased climate finance, adaptation has generally received less support and mobilized less private sector action.  A 2014 OECD report found that in 2014, only 16% of global financing was dedicated to climate change adaptation.  The Paris Agreement called for a balance between climate finance and mitigation, and in particular highlighted the need to increase adaptation support for parties most vulnerable to the effects of climate change, including least developed countries and small island developing states.
The agreement also reminds the parties of the importance of public subsidies, as adaptation measures receive less investment from the public sector.  John Kerry, as Secretary of State, announced that the United States would double its subsidy-based adjustment funding by 2020.  Both the EU and its Member States are individually responsible for ratifying the Paris Agreement. It has been widely reported that the EU and its 28 Member States deposit their instruments of ratification at the same time to ensure that neither the EU nor its Member States commit to fulfilling obligations that belong exclusively to each other, and there was concern that there would be disagreement on each Member State`s share of the EU-wide reduction target. as well as the UK`s vote to leave the EU could delay the Paris Pact.  However, the European Parliament voted on 4. In October 2016, ratification of the Paris Agreement, the EU deposited its instruments of ratification on 5 October 2016 with several EU Member States.  On June 1, 2017, President Trump announced his intention to withdraw the United States from the agreement […].
