The United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC) is an international environmental treaty adopted on the 9th of May, 1992. The UNFCCC's objective is to "stabilize greenhouse gas concentrations in the atmosphere at a level that would prevent dangerous anthropogenic interference with the climate system". Parties to the Convention continue to meet regularly to take stock of progress in implementing their obligations under the treaty, and to consider further actions to address the climate change threat.
