MOSCOW, April 20. /TASS/. Russia’s government has endorsed the Paris climate agreement adopted in December 2015 at the session of Conference of the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change, the cabinet’s website said on Wednesday.
The agreement is due to be signed at the UN headquarters in New York on April 22, 2016. Russian Deputy Prime Minister Alexander Khloponin has been tasked to ink the document.
The government stressed that on insistence of Russia the agreement includes articles that guarantee taking into consideration "the forest factor and the importance of global adaptation of all countries for climate change."
The strategic goal of the agreement is to keep the rise in global average temperature by the end of the 21st century "well below" 2 degrees Celsius and take steps to limit the temperature increase even further to 1.5 degrees Celsius.
