The Paris Agreement includes a set of binding measures to monitor, review and publicly report on progress towards a country`s emission reduction targets. Rules to improve transparency apply to all countries for a common framework, with arrangements and support provided to countries that are currently unable to strengthen their systems over time. The countries most affected by the effects of climate change will be low-lying countries that are particularly vulnerable to sea-level rise and developing countries that do not have the resources to adapt to changes in temperature and precipitation. But rich countries like the United States are also increasingly vulnerable. In fact, several million Americans — especially children, the elderly, and the poor — are already suffering from the wrath of climate change. .
