The event will also provide an opportunity to other countries to publicly commit to joining or ratifying the agreement before the end of 2016. The Paris Agreement will enter into force 30 days after at least 55 countries, accounting for 55% of global GHG emissions, deposit their instruments of ratification or acceptance.
