United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change
UNFCCC's work on climate change is focused on the following areas:
The UNFCCC Secretariat assists the organization of the Conference of Parties (COPs) where debates on agendas and annotations on the negotiations take place. UNFCCC promotes programmatic approaches to climate change solutions that are cross-sectoral in nature, and includes parameters on impacts on water and the innovative methodologies to address water resources management challenges brought about by climate change.
The UNFCCC was established in 1992 when countries agreed to limit average global temperature increases and the resulting climate change, and to cope with whatever inevitable impacts. There are now 195 Parties to the Convention and 192 Parties to the Kyoto Protocol which legally binds developed countries to emission reduction targets.
