The Paris Agreement United States

That`s because it would still be a member of the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change, the body that created the Paris Agreement. However, America would be reduced to observer status, which means that its negotiators would have to participate in meetings and cooperate with other countries to achieve results, but not vote on decisions. President Obama was able to formally integrate the United States into the international agreement through executive measures, as he did not impose new legal obligations on the country. The United States already has a number of instruments in its books, in line with laws already passed by Congress, to reduce carbon pollution. The country formally acceded to the agreement in September 2016, after presenting its proposal for participation. .
