The ultimate objective of this Convention and any related legal instruments that the Conference of
the Parties may adopt is to achieve, in accordance with the relevant provisions of the Convention, stabilization
of greenhouse gas concentrations in the atmosphere at a level that would prevent dangerous anthropogenic
interference with the climate system. Such a level should be achieved within a time-frame sufficient to allow
ecosystems to adapt naturally to climate change, to ensure that food production is not threatened and to enable
economic development to proceed in a sustainable manner.
