In December 2015, Parties to the UNFCCC adopted a universal legally binding Agreement in Paris, which represents a turning point in global climate governance and strengthens rules-based multilateralism, as it is the first time that a comprehensive and universal agreement has been adopted under the UNFCCC.South Africa signed the Paris Agreement on 22 April 2016.

The Paris Agreement came into force on 4 November 2016.  At COP22 in Morocco in 2016, Parties agreed on 2018 as a deadline for completing work on the rule book in preparation for the implementation of the Paris Agreement. 

In preparation for the international climate change talks, the Department of Environmental Affairs, will host the annual national stakeholder consultation to solicit South Africa’s position for the upcoming COP23, and to assist the country to further develop their conceptual thinking on how to facilitate implementation of the Paris Agreement.
