UN chief Ban Ki-moon has termed the historic climate change agreement reached in Paris as a “monumental triumph” for planet Earth that will set the stage for achieving an end to poverty and development for all.

“In the face of an unprecedented challenge, you have demonstrated unprecedented leadership,” the UN Secretary General said taking the COP21 stage just minutes after the adoption of the agreement.

“You have worked collaboratively to achieve something that no one nation could achieve alone. This is a resounding success for multilateralism.”

In a landmark deal, 195 Parties to the UN Framework Convention on Climate Change pledged to curb emissions, strengthen resilience and take common climate action.

“The Paris Agreement is a monumental triumph for people and our planet,” Ban said in a tweet, immediately following the adoption of the new Paris Agreement. “It sets the stage for progress in ending poverty, strengthening peace and ensuring a life of dignity and opportunity for all.”
