Since Donald Trump became the president of the United States, whole world is ready for his drop on the Paris Agreement. However, the formal intervention still caused a broadly world reaction. Beside the negative influence on the political credit, international cooperation and potential effect on long term economic of the United States, Trump will not only take advantage of the political reputation building, but get another bargain chance to renegotiate of the Paris Agreement. In general, the United State withdrawal from the Paris Agreement will not change the low-carbon pathway and transformation trend of the global climate regime, but the long-term goal and the international cooperation on climate change will be impacted due to the budget cut on domestic climate change research and the donation cancelation on the multilateral environmental fund from the United States. As long as there is a renegotiation of the Paris Agreement, the common but differentiated principle of responsibility of the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change will be challenged again. In future, the climate change governance is still one of the main themes for the sustainable development. Instead of the governments, the multiple roles will improve their acting on climate change governance and local, non-governmental organizations will carry out more technical innovation and pragmatic cooperation. The capacity building on climate change research and awareness should be enhanced as a long-term work.

Key words: the United States withdrawl from the Paris Agreement, global climate change governance, impact
