Tomorrow, the United Nations Secretary-General, Ban Ki-moon, would host a ceremony in New York, United States.

Right there, many countries are expected to sign the historic climate agreement adopted last December in Paris.

No fewer than 130 countries have confirmed their readiness to sign the Paris Agreement it would be open for signatures tomorrow.

This will exceed the erstwhile record of 119 signatures for an opening day for an international agreement, set by the Law of the Sea in Montego Bay in 1994.  Moreover, more countries have casually specified that they would sign the treaty with the number snowballing promptly each week.

Over 60 Heads of State and Government will attend the ceremony, including French President François Hollande, signifying the sustained high level of engagement by world leaders to consent to and implement the Paris Agreement.

The occasion will mark the paramount step towards safeguarding that the Paris Agreement is enforced early enough.

The agreement will be in force 30 days after at least 55 countries, accounting for 55 per cent of global greenhouse gas emissions, deposit their instruments of ratification or acceptance, with the Secretary-General.

Tomorrow’s signing ceremony is also expected to witness leaders from civil societies and the private sector to discuss efforts to enhance funding for climate action and defensible development and upsurge actions that would achieve the Paris Agreement’s goal of regulating average global temperature rise to well below two degrees Celsius.

“Paris was historic.” The Secretary-General said.  “But it’s only the beginning.  We must urgently accelerate our efforts to tackle climate change.  I encourage all countries to sign the Paris Agreement on April 22 so we can turn aspirations into action.” He added.
