Abstract

The Earth’s climate has changed throughout history. While previous climate changes have mostly been attributed to very small variations in Earth’s orbit that change the amount of solar energy our planet receives, the current warming trend is of much more significance as most of it is extremely likely to be the result of human activity since the mid-20th century. Due to this rapid change in climate, the United Nations in its seventeen sustainable development goals (SDGs) has included climate action as one of those goals. The Paris agreement in 2015 aimed to strengthen the ability of countries to deal with the impacts of climate change through appropriate financial flows, a new technology framework and an enhanced capacity-building framework.
