The United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC), which was signed in Rio de Janeiro in June 1992, is primarily concerned with the following actions for the future:
- To limit and hopefully stabilize the future concentration of Greenhouse gas in Earth’s atmosphere
- Industrialized countries role and responsibility for GHG mitigation
Burden sharing (Kyoto Protocol burden-sharing agreement) is a term used to describe a system to fairly mitigate climate change across individual countries. The EU commitment to reduce its greenhouse gas emissions by 8% under the Kyoto Protocol is shared between the Member States under a legally binding ‘Burden Sharing Agreement’, which sets individual emissions targets for each Member State.
