The UN and the governments of France and Peru have launched a new project to work together on climate action.

Their new website aims to demonstrate how momentum for tackling climate change is building ahead of the COP21 conference in Paris this year.

It also shows the scope of the Lima-Paris Action Agenda, which is a joint programme of the Peruvian and French COP Presidencies, the Executive Office of the Secretary-General of the United Nations and the UNFCCC Secretariat.

It aims to strengthen climate action by taking global action towards low carbon and climate-resilient societies.

The website will reveal initiatives to tackle climate change in areas such as agriculture, transport, renewable energy, energy access and efficiency.

In a statement the two countries and the UN said: “Co-operative climate action is essential for the international community to keep the global average temperature rise below 2°C degrees, the internationally-agreed defense line against the worst impacts of climate change.”
