Urgent Agreement

The agreement is ambitious and offers all the instruments we need to combat climate change, reduce emissions and adapt to the effects of climate change. The Paris Agreement is an ambitious, dynamic and universal agreement. It covers all countries and emissions and is designed for total time. This is a monumental agreement. It strengthens international cooperation on climate change. It offers a way forward. To be effective, countries must approve an agreement on human rights and the justice dimension of climate change. In other words, countries urgently need to take action to reduce CO2 emissions, minimize the impact on the climate and integrate rights protection to avoid the damage caused by climate change measures. Ambitious measures to combat climate change, respectful of human rights and the protection of ecosystems, will lead to better results for all. The agreement not only formalizes the process of drawing up national plans, but also contains a binding commitment to assess and review progress made under these plans. This mechanism will require countries to constantly update their commitments and ensure that there is no regression.

Saving lives and livelihoods requires urgent action to address both the pandemic and the climate emergency. On 18 November, the European Commission signed an agreement with the International Federation of the Red Cross (IFRC) mobilising EUR 35.5 million under the Emergency Aid Instrument to increase the EU`s Covid-19 audit capabilities. The funds will be used to support staff training for sample sampling and analysis and testing, including through mobile devices. The funds will enable Red Cross mobile test teams to access the equipment, laboratory objects and reagents needed to take samples and conduct tests, and will assist national authorities in their work. The 22nd meeting of the UNFCCC Conference of the Parties (COP 22) was held in Marrakech, Morocco. During COP 22, the parties began preparing for the entry into force of the Paris Agreement and promoting measures to implement the climate change agreement. The agreement offers a way forward to limit the temperature increase to a level well below 2 degrees, perhaps even 1.5 degrees. The agreement provides a mechanism to raise the level of ambitions. Conclusion: even with the same criteria, health professionals often disagree on the urgency of caring for patients with ED. If retrospective evaluators do not agree with a prospective assessment of the emergency, there is a risk of refusal of payment or even recourse.

Since the subjectivity of emergency definitions can contribute to a scramble, the development of more objective and uniform definitions can help to improve the agreement. Results: the proportion of patients considered to require urgent care by retrospective evaluators was between 11% and 63%. The agreement between the retrospective evaluators was fair (kappa .38; 95% confidence interval, 0.30 to .46) and was no better among critics of the same specialty. We found only a small agreement between the nurse examiner`s retrospective assessment and the prospective assessments of triage nurses (kappa – 19; 95% confidence interval, 0.07 to 0.31). This agreement is a clear invitation from governments to be ready to implement the 2030 sustainable development agenda.
