UN Climate Change – 6 June 2022
The Bonn Climate Change Conference (6-16 June) is designed to prepare for the UN Climate Change Conference COP27 in November this year. The conference will build on the positive outcome of last year’s UN Climate Change Conference COP26 in Glasgow, which finalized operational details of the Paris Agreement and identified work going forward, in the key areas of mitigation, adaptation, support – particularly finance – and loss and damage.

The UNFCCC secretariat (UN Climate Change) is the United Nations entity tasked with supporting the global response to the threat of climate change. UNFCCC stands for United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change. The Convention has near universal membership (197 Parties) and is the parent treaty of the 2015 Paris Agreement. The main aim of the Paris Agreement is to keep the global average temperature rise this century as close as possible to 1.5 degrees Celsius above pre-industrial levels. The UNFCCC is also the parent treaty of the 1997 Kyoto Protocol. The ultimate objective of all three agreements under the UNFCCC is to stabilize greenhouse gas concentrations in the atmosphere at a level that will prevent dangerous human interference with the climate system, in a time frame which allows ecosystems to adapt naturally and enables sustainable development.
