Climate - Paris Agreement - Ratification by Laos (Sept. 7, 2016)

France welcomes Laos’s ratification of the Paris Climate Agreement. Laos is the first ASEAN country to ratify the agreement.

France encourages all the countries that signed the agreement to ratify it promptly, notably on the occasion of the high-level event on the entry in force of the Paris Agreement to be held in New York on September 21.

We are now very close to the 55-country threshold representing 55 percent of emissions, which will make it possible for the Paris Agreement to enter into force.
