Countries all over the world have committed themselves to reduce their carbon emissions in order to reach the goal of the Paris climate agreement of a maximum of 2°Celsius global warming. However, reaching this goal may be more challenging in practice, as there are large differences between countries. From their contributions to overall global warming, to their resources to protect themselves against the severe consequences of climate change, and their general capabilities to reduce territorial emissions. This creates a lot of tensions between the different parties, since only few are willing to put action against climate change on top of their agenda.
