Climate - Get the Big Picture
Big Picture

The UNFCCC interactive guide seeks to provide a starting point for newcomers to help them take in the ‘big picture’ of the United Nations climate change regime, which is at the forefront of international action to combat climate change. It guides the newcomer through the various issues covered by the regime, such as mitigation, adaptation and finance, in order to gain a better understanding of the global efforts to combat climate change. The guide also tries to explain and demystify the negotiation processes where Parties of the UNFCCC and its Kyoto Protocol come together to consider on-going efforts and take further steps to enhance those efforts.
