  • United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC)
    The Framework Convention on Climate Change was created in 1992 within the framework of the Earth Summit 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. "Conferences of the Parties" is the name given to the successive meetings that the countries have held under this convention. The Kyoto Protocol and the Paris Agreements are the fruit of these conferences.
    Spanish: Convención Marco de Naciones Unidas sobre el Cambio Climático (UNFCCC)
