"Scientific evidence for warming of the climate system is unequivocal"
Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change

Human influence on the climate system is clear. This is evident from the increasing greenhouse gas concentrations in the atmosphere, positive radiative forcing, observed warming, and understanding of the climate system

The Earth system is complex and long-term policy direction can only be based on long-term observations and comprehensive assessments of the best available science.

The Convention calls on Parties to promote and cooperate in research and systematic observation of the climate system, including through exchange of information and supporting international programmes, networks and organizations. Parties are also called upon to cooperate in improving the capacities of developing countries so that they can participate in research and systematic observation activities (Articles 4.1(g,h) and 5). Further background information >>

Parties regularly report on their national and cooperative research activities and their contributions to climate science, as well as emerging research needs and priorities through their National Communications.
