The agreement adopted on December 12 at the United Nations Climate Conference (COP21) in Paris should be ratified by Serbia within one year, the country’s minister of agriculture and environmental protection Snežana Bogosavljević –Bošković said, Beta news agency’s environmental section Zelena Srbija reported. “The plan is to complete the signing and ratification within one year,” she told a conference held to reflect on the global agreement that was struck on fighting climate change.

Ambassador of France to Serbia Christine Moro and minister Bogosavljević –Bošković said the conference had been successful and recalled that it had resulted in a deal which envisages limiting global temperature growth to under two degrees Celsius by the end of the century, with a possibility of limiting it to 1.5 degrees.

Moro said the agreement was legally binding and based on consensus, and that 188 of the 196 members of the UN Framework Convention on Climate Change had submitted their goals for greenhouse gas emission reduction, the report adds.
