The webinar focused on the Paris Agreement, adopted by 190+ countries in Paris, December 2015, which aims to ¨hold the increase in the global average temperature to well below 2 °C above pre-industrial levels and to pursue efforts to limit the temperature increase to 1.5 °C above pre-industrial levels¨. The dialogue highlighted the immediate need for sector specific targets for the tourism sector to effectively contribute to the 2030 Agenda.
