Key Decisions

Decisions made at annual meetings of countries that have signed the Kyoto Protocol and the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC) have shaped both the mission and structure of the Adaptation Fund. The texts below include the adaptation-related decisions made by parties to these international environmental treaties.

Find adaptation-related decisions using the codes in parentheses:

CP stands for “Conference of the Parties,” which indicates that countries were meeting in their capacity as parties to the UNFCCC.

CMP stands for “Conference of the Parties Serving as the Meeting of the Parties to the Kyoto Protocol,” or the group of countries that are parties to the Kyoto Protocol.

The first number in the code indicates the decision number within the document. The second number indicates the number of times the CP or CMP has met. So, (10/CP.7) means “Decision 10 of the seventh meeting of the Conference of the Parties,” which is the decision that established the Adaptation Fund.
