The Paris agreement, in which 195 countries committed to limiting the temperature increase to well below 2C, set a new standard for dealing with complex global warming. To achieve such goals demands urgent and significant cuts in emissions. Sciences and Technology are called to give their contribution.

COP21 in Paris, moved up by events worldwide and defined as “last call” to find out an answer to the risk of global warming, has been considered an historic event. The Paris agreement, in which 195 countries committed to limiting the temperature increase below 1.5°C, therefore to well below 2C, set a new standard for dealing with global warming.

But the emissions reduction commitments made by the participating countries are not close to sufficient to achieve these targets.The Paris climate agreement is not perfect but it is a turning point, where it was recognized by everyone the need to undertake actions for a sustainable development, with the decarbonisation by 20150.

Therefore it is urgent to undertake more weighty policies and measure by Governments, regional and local governances, with smart, renewable and sustainable energy solutions, where Sciences and Technology are called to give their contribution.
