08.11.21 – The impacts of climate change will be felt most strongly among communities and the most marginalised. An effective response must therefore put their voices front and centre. In this event at the UN Climate Change Conference COP26 in Galsgow, representatives from communities on the frontline of climate change shared their experiences. They outlined what more national governments and the international community must do to drive more inclusive, locally-led adaptation action.

The UNFCCC secretariat (UN Climate Change) is the United Nations entity tasked with supporting the global response to the threat of climate change. UNFCCC stands for United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change. The Convention has near universal membership (197 Parties) and is the parent treaty of the 2015 Paris Agreement. The main aim of the Paris Agreement is to keep the global average temperature rise this century as close as possible to 1.5 degrees Celsius above pre-industrial levels. The UNFCCC is also the parent treaty of the 1997 Kyoto Protocol. The ultimate objective of all three agreements under the UNFCCC is to stabilize greenhouse gas concentrations in the atmosphere at a level that will prevent dangerous human interference with the climate system, in a time frame which allows ecosystems to adapt naturally and enables sustainable development.
