United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change
One achievement of the summit was an agreement: The United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC) is an international environmental treaty adopted on 9 May 1992 and opened for signature at the Earth Summit in Rio de Janeiro from 3 to 14 June 1992. It then entered into force on 21 March 1994, after a sufficient number of countries had ratified it.
The UNFCCC objective is to “stabilize greenhouse gas concentrations in the atmosphere at a level that would prevent dangerous anthropogenic interference with the climate system”. The framework sets non-binding limits on greenhouse gas emissions for individual countries and contains no enforcement mechanisms. (Thanks WP)
World Streets on Full Gender Parity
TO FIX SUSTAINABLE TRANSPORT . . .
Ensure Full Gender Parity in all Decision and Investment Fora
And please note this: it is the ONLY way to get this important job done! To get the much needed results we need a hammer, not a paint brush. This leadership function cannot be passively sub-contracted to the other sex. World Streets and the New Mobility Agenda have since 1988 been vigorous proponents of full gender parity in all planning and decision counsel. In this section you will find a number of the articles that we have published arguing in favor of gender parity in recent years.
