France Submits Long-Term National Climate Plan

France has submitted its long-term climate action plan under the Paris Agreement to the secretariat of the UN Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC).

The details of this and other long-term plans can be accessed here.

The highlights of the plan include a 40 percent target reduction in emissions by 2030 compared to 1990 and a 75 percent reduction by 2050 compared to 1990.

In accordance with Article 4, paragraph 19, of the Paris Agreement, all Parties to the UNFCCC should strive to formulate and communicate long-term low greenhouse gas emission development strategies, mindful of Article 2 and taking into account their common but differentiated responsibilities and respective capabilities, in the light of different national circumstances.
