UNECE and Climate Change


We are the last generation with the ability to stop climate change. If we fail, it will be a historic mistake. But there is no single “silver bullet” that can address this challenge. We need to change behaviours through the right set of rules; we need to face and adapt to the impacts that cannot be avoided; we need good data to understand where we are so we can take informed decisions and design better policies; we need to develop new technologies that reduce the cost of climate change mitigation and facilitate the dissemination of existing ones. And we need to do this across multiple sectors in an open and transparent way that engages the public in finding solutions and taking action.

The publication UNECE and Climate Change compiles the work that UNECE is already doing for combating climate change in the pan-European region. UNECE aims at transforming global goals into practical solutions for climate change mitigation and adaptation.
