Does the UN ever meet to discuss global warming?

    Yes, the United Nations has been addressing the issue of global warming since 1988, with creation of the UN organization called the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC). The IPCC gathered all the international research collected so far on the subject and in 1990 confirmed that global warming was indeed a problem that needed addressing. Since then the Framework Convention on Climate Change was established and parented the Kyoto Protocol in 1997. The idea was to have each country agree to reduce greenhouse gases by a set percent by 2012 and receive credits for emission reduction. Last year the UN met in Mexico, and established “the Cancun Agreements” which 191 countries agreed to step up efforts and meet specific goals which are outlined here.

    Established in 1994, the Framework Convention on Climate Change does convene regularly for governments to “share information on greenhouse gas emissions, national policies and best practice.”  The delegates discuss strategies for improving GHG emissions and together prepare to adapt to the anticipated impacts of climate change.
