Climate Change Agreement Submission

03 June 2015

In December this year, a climate change conference is being held in Paris with the intent of establishing a new international agreement on reducing emissions of greenhouse gases. This is the next climate change conference in a sequence that began with the creation of the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC) at the Earth Summit held in Rio de Janeiro in 1992.

As part of the process leading up to Paris, each country is to submit an Intended Nationally Determined Contribution (INDC) to the United Nations. An INDC outlines the way each country intends to tackle climate change. This includes setting a target for reducing emissions after 2020.

This submission is being made in response to the recently released discussion document on New Zealand’s INDC.
