The United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC) is an international environmental treaty, which was negotiated back in 1992 at the Earth Summit in Rio de Janeiro .
With 197 parties participating in it, the UNFCCC contains nearly all countries worldwide and functions as the most important framework regarding climate change.
Well known UNFCCC conferences are the Conference of Parties (COP), which takes place annually around November and the Bonn Climate Change Conference, which is normally held around May.
The achievements of UNFCCC go from the establishment of GHG, national greenhouse gas inventories of greenhouse gas emissions and removals, to the creation of the Kyoto-Protocol and of course the Paris Agreement, which aims to keep the global warming below 2°C.
The International Forestry Students’ Association uses the opportunities provided by UNFCCC and sends delegations to conferences such as the COP.
On our UNFCCC Blog you will find latest updates and Blogs about different conferences by our delegations.
You can become part of the delegation by applying to our head of UNFCCC after we have started an open call.
