International climate change negotiations and agriculture

ICTSD-IPC Platform on Climate Change, Agriculture and Trade: Promoting Policy Coherence -  Policy Focus:

This overview of the existing international climate change agreements and the international negotiations underway points out the ways in which the agricultural sector – is – or may be – addressed in the international climate regulatory framework. Not intended to be a comprehensive analysis, it rather provides background information, outlines options and identifies areas which could usefully benefit from further analysis.

The brief first examines the United Nations Framework Conventionon Climate Change (UNFCCC), which entered into force in 1994, and the Kyoto Protocol to the UNFCCC, adopted in Kyoto, Japan, on 11 December 1997, that entered into force on 16 February 2005. It then focuses on options and proposals for addressing agriculture-related issues in the Bali Road Map, which is to conclude in Copenhagen in December 2009.
