Under the Paris Agreement, adopted in December 2015, 197 countries agreed to limit the rise in global average temperature to “well below 2°C above pre-industrial levels” and to pursue efforts to limit it to 1.5°C. On 8 October the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) will present its special report on the impacts of global warming of 1.5 °C and strategies for reducing greenhouse gas emissions.
