The Paris Agreement is an unprecedented global commitment to combating climate change. Sri Lanka is one of 195 states that adopted the Agreement in December 2015, and to date, 169 states have ratified it, including Sri Lanka. President Donald Trump’s announcement that the US will withdraw from the Agreement threatened its viability by leaving a vacuum in climate change leadership.
