STORYLINE
The Spokesperson for the Secretary-General, Stephane Dujarric, today (5 Nov) said that the United States’ official notification of its withdrawal from the Paris Climate Agreement “had been announced, and therefore was expected.”

Dujarric said, the Organization’s “determination to move forward on the implementation of the Paris Agreement remains unchanged.”

He said, “we continue to encourage member states to actively engage ahead of COP25 in Madrid to raise ambition, to tackle and defeat climate change.”

At COP 21 in Paris, on 12 December 2015, Parties to the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC) reached a landmark agreement to combat climate change and to accelerate and intensify the actions and investments needed for a sustainable low carbon future.

President Barack Obama at the time highlighted the pivotal role played by the US as “the world’s greatest economy and the second largest emitter” and said, “the United States of America not only recognizes our role in creating this problem, we embrace our responsibility to do something about it.”

President Donald Trump, on 1 June 2017, announced that the US would abandon the Agreement. On Monday (4 Nov) the US notified the Secretary-General, in his capacity as depositary, its withdrawal from the Paris Agreement.

The US had signed the Paris Agreement on 22 April 2016 and expressed its consent to be bound by the Agreement by acceptance on 3 September 2016.

In accordance with the provisions of its article 28, paragraph 1, the United States could withdraw from the Paris Agreement as of Monday by giving written notification to the Secretary-General.

According to Article 28, paragraph 2, of the Paris Agreement, the withdrawal of the United States will take effect on 4 November 2020.
