Policy Brief 1 - An Introduction to Climate Change and the International Community’s Response (1990-1994)
The Queen Mary University of London Global Policy Institute has published four Climate Change Policy Briefs covering the history of the international community’s response to climate change and the global evolution of the climate change regime. From the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change in 1992 to the present day, our Policy Briefs put the COP26 summit in Glasgow in context.
In this Brief, we discuss the development of the UNFCCC from 1990-1992 and review its main provisions, and briefly discuss the factors driving the evolution of the Global Climate Response, including the scientific consensus, developments in advanced economies and the role of global politics.
