The end of US funding of $3 billion will ultimately have an impact on climate change research and reduce society`s chances of achieving the goals of the Paris Agreement, as well as US contributions to future IPCC reports.   Trump`s decision will also impact the carbon emission space and carbon price.  The US withdrawal will also mean that the place for the adoption of the global climate regime will be within the reach of China and the EU.  In accordance with Article 28 of the Agreement, the parties may terminate the contract after notification of termination to the depositary.
