The Paris Agreement has taken centre stage at the 24th session of the Conference of the Parties (COP24) taking place in Poland.

This week’s episode of ESI Insights, in collaboration with the African Utility Week, takes a closer look at some of the outcomes from COP24.

Although, climate-related disasters are on the increase, which are caused by high volumes of carbon emissions, the implementation of the Paris Agreement still remains a challenge.

The Paris Agreement, which is to be implemented from 2021, requires the developed countries to provide financial resources to assist developing nations in implementing the objectives of the United Nations climate change agenda.

However, developed nations have demanded that developing countries first provide information on how much they will be contributing to climate finance.
