The general screen and processes of the UNFCCC and the adopted Kyoto Protocol have been criticized by some for failing to meet their stated targets for reducing carbon dioxide emissions (the main cause of the increase in global temperatures in the 21st century). [7] In a speech in Alma Mater, Todd Stern, the U.S. climate chief, said: “Climate change is not a conventional environmental issue… It covers virtually every aspect of a state`s economy, making countries nervous before growth and development. It is an economic problem, because it is an environmental problem. He added that the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change is a multilateral body that deals with climate change and can be an ineffective system for implementing international policies. Given that the framework covers more than 190 countries and negotiations are conducted by mutual agreement, small groups of countries can often block progress. [76] At the 21st Conference of the Parties in 2015 in Paris, the parties to the UNFCCC reached a policy agreement to combat climate change and accelerate and intensify the measures and investments needed for a sustainable, low-carbon future. The Paris Agreement builds on the agreement and, for the first time, puts all nations in a common cause to make ambitious efforts to combat climate change and adapt to its effects, while supporting developing countries. As such, it sets a new course in the global climate effort.

On 21 September, UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon convened a special event at UN Headquarters in New York on the introduction of the High-Level Climate Change Convention to table ratification, acceptance, acceptance, approval or adherence to the Paris Agreement on climate change. 2009 – June – Under the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC), governments met in Bonn, Germany, to begin discussions on proposed negotiations that should serve as the basis for an agreement in Copenhagen. Building on the dynamics of climate change, the Secretary-General will launch his Youth Advisory Group on Climate Change on 27 July to strengthen the voice of young people and engage young people in an open and transparent dialogue, as the United Nations prepares to achieve ambitious goals and accelerate action to address the climate crisis.
