We must “tell them that we are one of the three countries (in the world classified as) negative carbon, “ said Cortizo, who will travel to Scotland on October 28 and return to Panama on November 3, according to official information.

With 197 Parties, the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC) has almost universal membership and is the precursor treaty to the 2015 Paris Agreement on climate change.
The main goal of the Paris Agreement is to keep the global average temperature rise this century well below 2 C and to push efforts to further limit this rise to 1.5 C above pre-industrial levels.
The ultimate goal of all UNFCCC agreements is to stabilize greenhouse gas concentrations in the atmosphere at a level that prevents dangerous human interference in the climate system, within a time frame that allows ecosystems to adapt naturally and enable sustainable development.
