Country: Global / Non-Specific
In 1992 many countries joined an international treaty, the 1992 United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCC) , as a framework for international cooperation to combat climate change by limiting average global temperature increases and the resulting climate change, and coping with impacts that were, by then, inevitable. After ratification of the UNFCCC treaty, Parties to the UNFCCC have met at conferences to discuss how to achieve the treaty's aims.
The UNFCC site contains documents and decisions related to the efforts made under this international framework, including the 2000 Kyoto Protocol and the 2015 Paris Agreement.
