- The Copenhagen Accord
Foundations for International Action on Climate Change
- The Copenhagen Accord, hammered out in December by President Obama and leaders of more than two dozen key countries, is a significant step forward in forging international cooperation to tackle global warming.1 These signatories -- including the United States, China, India, the European Union, and Japan -- represent more than 80 percent of the world’s global warming pollution from energy and deforestation. Also included are some of the nations most vulnerable to the impacts of climate change. More than 120 countries in the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change have accepted this agreement. Get document in pdf.
