So from reading the answers in this question, it seems the Paris Climate Agreement was basically non-binding with no actual consequences and in addition, the targets are set by the host countries themselves.

If this is the case, what's even the point? What are the countries the have signed on actually agreeing to? What is the impact to a country to sign or not sign the agreement?
