All of the scientific data points to the same alarming finding: global warming is being exacerbated due to the effects of an unprecedented increase in greenhouse gas emissions. Faced with this major challenge for the future of the planet, the major climate change conferences that have successively taken place since Copenhagen in 2009 under the auspices of the United Nations have not resulted in the setting down of an international regulatory framework between all States. Following its opinion entitled "International Climate Negotiations and the Durban Conference" adopted in 2011, with this follow-up opinion, the ESEC sets itself the task of formulating a number of proposals on the ways and means by which a global, fair and ambitious agreement may be reached at the COP 21 in Paris.
