Climate change policy framework after Paris
The Paris Agreement was adopted on 12 December 2015 at the 21st session of the COP to the UNFCCC (United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change) held in Paris, and entered into force on 4 November 2016. The Paris Agreement is a legally binding international treaty applicable to all parties to the Convention with the aim of strengthening the global response to the threat of climate change. Responding to the Paris Agreement, the South Korean government announced in February 2016 to have the Office for Government Policy Coordination (OGPC) under the Prime Minister’s Office spearhead the mitigation policies with the purpose of enhancing the governance framework. Minding recent international and domestic changes, this study analyzes the climate change policy frameworks of 4 countries of the UK, Germany, New Zealand and China, and investigates policy implications in order to maximize the role of OGPC and also to explore and establish the sustainable climate change policy framework responding to the Paris Agreement in the long-run.
