Abstract: This paper assesses the policy and legislative implications of The Paris Agreement for examining this issue, it discusses the global as well as the national climate challenge posed currently and the international legal steps taken as a response to this challenge. Climate change has become an undisputed fact and it is threatening the globe, and this is why states have tried to come up with international law solutions for the past half a century. The most resent of these is the 2015 Paris climate agreement under the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate change. This paper explains the basic structure of and commitments under The Paris Agreement. The paper argues that there has been a big step taken by Ethiopia towards the implementation of its policy commitments under The Paris Agreement, although the practicability of these policy instruments is not yet proved positive. This paper also argues that there has been no binding legal instrument, in Ethiopia, with regards to climate change in general and The Paris Agreement in particular and therefore recommends the issuance of such laws before 2020.the paper also concludes that the existing environmental policy of Ethiopia seems to be neither exhaustive nor specific of climate change issues under The Paris Agreement and recommends that its revision under progress becomes considerate of this.
