“This guide seeks to provide a starting point for newcomers to help them see the ‘big picture’ of the United Nations (UN) climate change regime, which is at the forefront of international action to combat climate change with its three major legal instruments – the UN Framework Convention on Climate Change, the Kyoto Protocol and the Paris Agreement. It guides the newcomer through the various issues covered by the regime, such as mitigation, adaptation and support, in order to gain a better understanding of the global efforts to combat climate change and the ongoing work under the international regime. The guide also also explains the negotiation processes where governments come together to consider on-going efforts and take further steps to enhance them.
We hope the guide will enable you, the readers, to increase your knowledge and ownership of climate change issues that are of fundamental importance to us all.” from United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change website
