Countries have put forward commitments on curbing carbon emissions under the agreement, but a report on Thursday found those pledges would see temperature rises significantly overshoot the threshold, with 3C of warming. Environmental groups urged governments to do more.

While the pact is seen as a turning point in the international effort to manage climate change and get global warming down to1.5 degrees Celsius above pre-industrial levels, the carbon emission curbs proposed by countries are not legally binding. How can next week’s talks in Morocco hold nations accountable?
