United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change

Quick description

The United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC) sets the overall framework for intergovernmental efforts to tackle climate change by providing a platform for negotiations and agreements among member countries.

Its ultimate objective is to achieve the stabilization of greenhouse gas concentrations in the atmosphere at a level that would prevent dangerous anthropogenic interference with the climate system. The UNFCCC also serves as the parent treaty for the Kyoto Protocol and the Paris Agreement, which are additional international agreements aimed at addressing specific aspects of climate change mitigation and adaptation.

Through their transparency and reporting processes, they share free access to national level emissions, decomposed by gases, sectors
