UNECE support for climate action

Climate Action Brochure 2022

The  UNECE  region  is  a  major  source  of  greenhouse  gas emissions, responsible for 34% of the world’s CO2 emissions  from  fossil  fuel  combustion. The people of the region are increasingly feeling the impacts of  climate change - from wildfires to flooding, heatwaves and drought.

Through  its  norms,  standards,  conventions,  and policy assistance, UNECE provides practical tools to support  countries  in  their  climate  change  mitigation  and adaptation efforts, to leverage financing, and to strengthen collaboration.
