Jonathan Reeves, policy officer on climate change, ActionAid UK said: "It's good news that the UK has joined the 110 other countries who have ratified the Paris Agreement, sending a solid signal that climate action must continue no matter what. 

 

"But it's clear that ratification, while necessary, will not be enough to keep us on track for the Paris Agreement's goal of staying under 1.5°C warming. When the planet has just experienced the hottest year ever, and the US election is sending ripples through the UN climate talks in Marrakech, the UK needs to rapidly ramp up its commitments."
