  • United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC)
    The Framework Convention on Climate Change was established in 1992 at the Earth Summit held in Rio de Janeiro. It acknowledged for the first time that the climate system is a resource shared by all nations and that greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions must be reduced in order to solve the issue of climate change, but without referring to specific dates for achieving this. 'Conference of the Parties' is the name given to the successive meetings that the countries have held under this convention. The Kyoto Protocol is the fruit of one such conference.

    Spanish: Convención marco de las Naciones Unidas sobre el cambio climático (CMNUCC, en inglés United Nations of Climate Change, UNFCC)
