Although Indonesia is not directly linked to the deal, the country is a staunch defender of the Palestinian cause, the UAE`s close ally, as well as Israel`s silent partner. In Indonesia, several questions have been raised about the agreement, including its impact on Palestine. These issues were particularly relevant when the United Arab Emirates congratulated Indonesia on the 70th anniversary of its independence and reaffirmed its close ties a few days after the signing of the Agreement with Israel. Under the agreement, the targets are called Intended Nationally Determined Contributions (INDCs). To date, 187 countries have submitted their INDCs. Some organizations are already comparing their travel programs to the agreement. Last month, online gambling company Kindred Group said it had aligned its energy targets with the Paris Agreement. With the growing demand for legislation, political pressure and investor demands, companies are beginning to respond to a changing landscape. The agreement was negotiated by 196 countries at a UNITED Nations conference in Paris in December 2015 – and entered into force on 4 November 2016. .
