PARIS -- In December 2015, world leaders agreed on a new international framework for tackling climate change from 2020. France successfully led the U.N. conference because of rigorous preparation and carefully arranged under-the-table negotiations. But with just over a month since the adoption of the agreement, the host country is wasting no time to make sure that it actually takes effect.

     On Jan. 25, French President Francois Hollande visited India and met with Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi in New Delhi. The two leaders agreed "to continue to work with each other ... toward the realization of the goals of the Paris agreement."
