Subject. The article investigates the problems related to the implementation of Russia's obligations under the Paris Agreement.
Objectives. The aim is to examine the possibilities of implementing Russia's obligations under the Paris Agreement, analyze institutional, legal, international, political and methodological aspects of fulfilling these obligations, identify problems and prospects for realizing the interests of Russian exporters in international markets, and opportunities for the development of economic and innovative potential, including the analysis of implementing the national climate doctrines in the field of greenhouse gas emissions reduction.
Methods. The study employs methods of institutional, comparative, graphical, and statistical analysis, and methods of systematization and classification.
Results. I established the degree of development of the institutional and legal framework for implementing climate agreements, characterized their international and political aspects, classified methodological problems of decision-making and performance of decarbonization programs, proved the need to renew production assets, and demonstrated the nature of implementation of national climate doctrines stimulating the development of innovations.
Conclusions. The process of building the institutional and legal framework for regulating climate relations is not completed yet. A number of methodological problems hinder the achievement of fairness and objectivity of economic and political decision-making at the global and regional levels. The paper establishes a critical level of ageing the production capacities of Russian enterprises, and offers conditions and promising directions of the Russian economy development during energy transition.
