The Paris Agreement is a very specific document, that was substantially revised between the proposal at the start of the conference and the final text, reflecting a very specific response to a set of globally crucial issues concerning rapid climate change in this century. Our closing point is a question of whether orientation on growth of the type suffused through the Agreement text and most commonly promulgated around the world as the desirable (green) growth and (green) investment can lead to the desired goal of 1.5-2C temperature limit. En route, we will touch upon the nuances and possibilities of global climate justice in UN agreements of this type, and instruments of loss and damage, liability, development aspirations and standards, climate refugees.
