UNFCCC 25th Anniversary: Climate Action is More Urgent than Ever

Today marks a special day in the history of global climate action: It marks the day when the UN Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC) first came into force. To celebrate the 25th anniversary of the entry into force, Patricia Espinosa, UN Climate Change Executive Secretary delivered remarks on this important milestone and encouraged greater ambition and action for a sustainable future. She said:

“While we’ve made enormous progress in 25 years, the world is still running behind climate change. Today, the urgency to address it has never been more urgent. But because of the work begun 25 years ago, we are also better coordinated to take it on. We have the Paris Agreement, and we have the guidelines strengthening that agreement. What we need now are results.”
