More than 130 countries, including Guyana, have confirmed that they will sign the Paris Agreement on climate change on 22 April (Earth Day) —the first day that the agreement will be open for signature. Over 60 Heads of State and Government are to attend the signing ceremony hosted by United Nations Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon.

The signing ceremony will mark the first step toward ensuring that the Paris Agreement – agreed last December – enters into force as early as possible. The agreement will enter into force 30 days after at least 55 countries, accounting for 55 per cent of global greenhouse gas emissions, deposit their instruments of ratification or acceptance with the Secretary-General.

The Secretary-General will convene the signing ceremony at 8:30 a.m. (New York time) in the General Assembly Hall at UN Headquarters in New York and is expected to hold a press conference later in the day.
