The U.S. today pushed nations to make progress this year on rules to verify that countries make good on their plans to cut carbon pollution under the Paris accord—and pledged $15 million to help nations ratchet up their technical expertise to do so.
“Transparency is really one of the bedrocks of the agreement” to be signed by the U.S., China and nearly 170 other nations at the UN today, Jonathan Pershing, U.S. Special Envoy for Climate Change, told reporters.
In most countries, the U.S. included, signing the Paris Agreement is just the first step in formally joining the international pact through ratification or another form of domestic approval.
Secretary of State John Kerry, in a morning address to the UN, reaffirmed U.S. plans to join the climate pact well before President Barack Obama leaves office in January.
“The United States looks forward to formally joining this agreement this year,” said Kerry, on hand to sign the climate pact on behalf of the U.S. “And we call on all of our international partners to do so.”
