The Climate Conference in Paris will surely produce an agreement. But what type of agreement? Will it represent the turning point everybody is expecting? Many countries will participate and not all of them at the same level. The agreement of last November between the US and China is a good starting point. However, there is still plenty of resistance and its five-year implementation is too long. The Fondazione Centro Futuro Sopstenibile sets forth three proposals for the Paris meeting: to speed up the elimination of fluorine compounds (Protocol of Montreal); to face the challenges connected with forests, agriculture, landscape and food with greater determination; at the legal level, making the future Paris agreement the most effective and timely of all.
