Negotiating work under the UN Framework Convention on Climate Change remains to be done to ensure that the Paris Agreement on Climate Change can be fully implemented.

To this end, the French Presidency together with the incoming Moroccan Presidency, requested the secretariat to develop a progress tracker that presents an overview of the different tasks that need to be completed for full operationalization. The overview is in tabular format indicating the responsible bodies, actors and timelines, as well as the status of work on each and, where applicable, next steps. The progress tracker contains links to specific deliverables and/or websites for further information associated with the implementation of the tasks.  This represents a helpful tool for governments, and especially delegations to the next Climate Change Conference, which will be held in Morocco in November 2016.

The Paris Agreement was adopted on 12 December 2015. Its central aim is to strengthen the global response to the threat of climate change by keeping a global temperature rise this century well below 2 degrees Celsius above pre-industrial levels and to pursue efforts to limit the temperature increase even further to 1.5 degrees Celsius. Additionally, the agreement aims to strengthen the ability of countries to deal with the impacts of climate change.
