L’accordo di Parigi pone l’obiettivo di mantenere l’aumento della temperatura media globale ben al di sotto di 2°C rispetto ai livelli preindustriali, e proseguire l’azione volta a limitare l’aumento a 1,5°C. La scienza (IPCC - Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change) informa che gli effetti che si avrebbero se la temperatura venisse mantenuta entro 1.5°C rispetto a 2°C sarebbero molto diversi e invita a perseguire il target più basso per prevenire cambiamenti di lunga durata o irreversibili, inclusa la perdita di ecosistemi vitali.

Qatar is carving out a leading role for itself within international diplomacy - particularly in light of recent events in Afghanistan - through its mediation-oriented foreign policy. This occurs after — and despite — three years of political and diplomatic crisis between the Quartet (Saudi Arabia, the United Arab Emirates-UAE, Bahrain, and Egypt) and Qatar.

The presidency of Donald Trump terrified anti-corruption practitioners in both the US and abroad.
