Climate change represents an urgent and potentially irreversible threat to human societies and the planet and requires the widest possible cooperation by all countries and their participation in an effective and appropriate international response with a view to accelerate the reduction of global greenhouse gas emissions.  The Convention and Agreement also recognize that deep reductions in global emissions will be required in order to achieve the ultimate objective that emphasizes the need and urgency in addressing climate change.
