| UN Framework Convention on Climate Change
The United Nation's Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC) is the principle international legal and regulatory initiative to tackle climate change. Seas At Risk has only recently become involved in this forum and the focus of its work is inclusion of emissions from marine fuels (bunkers) in future mitigation targets.
The Convention was adopted on 9th May 1992 and entered into force on 21st March 1994. The first meeting of Parties took place in 1995 and the Kyoto Protocol, which contains the first commitments in respect of greenhouse gas emission reduction, was adopted in December 1997.
