Key policy areas
|Global climate change threatens to disrupt the well-being of society, undermine economic development and alter the natural environment, making it a key policy concern of the 21st century. Governments around the world have reached consensus on the need to achieve large cuts in greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions over the coming decades, to adapt to the impacts of climate change, and to ensure the necessary financial and technical support for developing countries to take action. They are working towards an international agreement to achieve these goals under the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC).
