Climate change is not only a modern term that is constantly used in international politics to show awareness about this significant issue in the world media, or as a subject that states have to consider as important in the future when the world will be politically and economically more stabile. Climate change has become a global political and environmental challenge for humanity over the last decades. Therefore, coordinate approach of the countries and international strategy for disaster risk reduction and multiple actions on climate change is more than needed. At the same time, climate change polices cannot be developed in isolation from the overall development context. For that reason, more than 150 countries representing around 90% of all global emissions in USA already have offered climate pledges and last month, 81 companies from across the American economy signed the American Businesses Act on Climate Pledge to demonstrate their commitment to climate action and show their support for a strong international climate agreement. Ahead of the forthcoming Summit on climate change in Paris (December 2015), more than 200 Colleges and Universities in USA sign the American Campus Act on Climate Pledge to demonstrate support for strong international climate action. Countries are aiming to reach Agreement in Paris on a deal that will come into force from 2020. This means ensuring each nation pledges its own ‘nationally determined contribution’ for post-2020 action. The agreement should include ambitious national plans for action from 2020 onwards, and a package of pre-2020 action, with more ambitious national mitigation pledges, better delivery of existing financial commitments and more action in key sectors, such as energy efficiency, renewable energy deployment and forest protection.
