联合国气候变化框架公约秘书处 United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change Secretariat
In its early years, the main task of the secretariat was to support intergovernmental climate change negotiations. Now we also support an increasing number of constituted bodies that serve the process. The entry into force of the Kyoto Protocol in 2005 led to a trend of increased technical expertise within the secretariat, for example on reporting guidelines and the land use, land-use change and forestry sector. Currently, a major part of our work involves the analysis and review of climate change information and data reported by Parties Espinosa Cantellano.
In 1992, countries adopted the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC) as a response to the problem of global warming. Five years later, they adopted the Kyoto Protocol, which strengthens the Convention by setting legally binding emission reduction requirements for 37 industrialized countries.
The ultimate objective of both treaties is to stabilize greenhouse gas concentrations in the atmosphere at a level that will prevent dangerous human interference with the climate system. The staff of the United Nations Climate Change Secretariat works towards this goal, guided by the Convention's 195 and the Protocol's 192 Parties. In 1995, Governments decided to accept the offer of the German Government to locate the secretariat in the German city of Bonn. At the head of the secretariat is the Executive Secretary. This position is currently held by Patricia.
