International Agreements & Commitments

  • IPCC - First Report

    The Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change is an intergovernmental body of the United Nations responsible for advancing knowledge on human-induced climate change.
    e First IPCC Assessment Report (FAR) underlined the importance of climate change as a challenge with global consequences and requiring international cooperation.From the First to the Fifth Assessment Report (AR5), there has been substantial progress in understanding of climate science.
  • The Earth Summit

    The United Nations organized a conference on environment and development in Rio de Janeiro, called the Earth Summit..The primary objective of the Rio 'Earth Summit' was to produce a broad agenda and a new blueprint for international action on environmental and development issues that would help guide international cooperation and development policy in the twenty-first century.
  • Kyoto Protocol

    The Kyoto Protocol was an international treaty which extended the 1992 United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change that commits state parties to reduce greenhouse gas emissions, based on the scientific consensus that global warming is occurring and that human-made CO₂ emissions are driving it.
    One of the principal concept includes-
    Minimizing Impacts on Developing Countries by establishing an adaptation fund for climate change.
  • G20- Washington Summit

    G20 plays a critical role in creating an enabling environment for inclusive global growth. The G20 first acknowledged that climate change was a serious problem at its 2008 Washington Summit. These communiqué conclusions centred on green growth and a green financial recovery from the 2008 US-led global financial crisis, support for the UN Framework Convention on Climate Change and its negotiating process.The G20 made 78 collective, climate change commitments between 2008 and 2018.
  • The Paris Agreement

    The Paris Agreement, is an international treaty on climate change, adopted in 2015. It covers climate change mitigation, adaptation, and finance.Its goal is to limit global warming to well below 2, preferably to 1.5 degrees Celsius, compared to pre-industrial levels.
    To achieve this long-term temperature goal, countries aim to reach global peaking of greenhouse gas emissions as soon as possible to achieve a climate neutral world by mid-century.
  • Clean Energy Transitions Summit - IEA

    The International Energy Agency (IEA) Clean Energy Transitions Summit will seek to build momentum behind the development and implementation of policies that can help countries create jobs, put greenhouse gas emissions into a structural decline and increase energy sector resilience. Its commitment is to bridge the gap between the energy sector and the climate goals.
