Turkey Ratifies the Paris Climate Agreement



The Turkish parliament ratified the Paris Climate Agreement to contribute to the global efforts against climate change. It entered into effect after it was published in the Official Gazette on 7 October

After ratifying the Paris Climate Agreement, a Climate Change Ministry has been established under the Ministry of Urban. The Climate Change Ministry has been established to tackle the issue in a more elaborate manner. 

Prior to the Paris Climate Agreement and the Ministry, Turkey has taken important steps to be part of the European Union Green Deal through its recently-released landmark Green Deal Action Plan (available in Turkish only). The action plan, released by the Trade Ministry on Friday, includes 32 objectives and 81 actions in nine categories to power Turkey’s transition to a more sustainable, greener economy in line with the goal of making Europe the first climate-neutral continent by 2050.
