The year 2012 would mark 20 years since the birth of the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC).

In support of this objective, the Convention required parties to ‘take precautionary measures to anticipate, prevent or minimize the causes of climate change and mitigate its adverse effects’.
