The global reaction to Donald Trump’s withdrawal of the USA from the Paris Agreement has so far made the other countries present a united front in holding on to the goals of the Agreement.
According to the Climate Change Performance Index 2018, it still remains to be shown whether this will hold true when it comes to the real implementation of necessary policies.
The reports also stated that positive signs have also come from US towns, states and companies, as well as actors in the financial market.
Many of them implement their own strategies and at the same time demand more ambitious climate action internationally and nationally.
They are asking for a reliable and stringent policy framework and investment-relevant CO2 price signal.
