Last week, international delegates gathered in Paris to debate CO2 emissions and climate change. The end result is what experts are calling “historic,” with the first international agreement to regulate CO2 emissions.

Among the goals include measures to prevent temperature increase greater than 2°C (3.6°F) and review progress every five years. Participants have also promised to delegate $100 billion to developing nations to achieve these goals.

BBC’s Matt McGrath has a solid analysis of whether this “ambitious” agreement can be maintained and what it means. He writes, “More than anything though the deal signifies a new way for the world to achieve progress - without it costing the Earth. A long term perspective on the way we do sustainability is at the heart of this deal. If it delivers that, it truly will be world changing.”

Read more on the details of the agreement in the BBC’s analysis.
